The final nail in the coffin happened on a Wednesday night at a big worship service called The Well. My college minister Ben was preaching, and as he lead everyone in a closing prayer he prayed for everyone who was wrestling with major life decisions. I kid you not, the first thing out of his mouth was “God, maybe there’s someone in this room who’s considering becoming a teacher one day, but they’re scared to make the leap”. I burst into tears because I knew what I had to do.

Show & Tell: Where Our Names Come From
Hi! I’m Erica, and I absolutely adore sharing my life on this website with you! I come here almost daily to blab about all of the things related to being a regular wife and mother in today’s ever-evolving society. I share about our new home, what’s on our kitchen table, what we’re hanging in our closets, where we’re traveling to next, my crazy 5 a.m. work outs, how I make time for girlfriends, our faith, and much more. We always have a lot of balls in the air and somewhat thrive on the chaos. I believe in the power of story-telling as a form of inspiration and entertainment, so I’m here to do both! I was born and raised in north Alabama and recently re-planted roots here again after my husband transitioned out of the Army (he is now in the Reserve and it’s going so well!) I’m a super proud mom to two little girls (ages 5 and 2) who seem to be the stars of the show around here (for good reason – they’re pretty great!) I’m so glad you found me and are here reading! I hope we can get to know each other here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Instagram. xoxo
