Influence Network

Today, I'm doing something a little bit different and am linking up with The Influence Network. I joined The Influence Network back in January after I took a class on Pinterest and growing your blog. It was a great class taught by Kate from The Small Things Blog and I loved it! So far I haven't gotten to "play" much yet but am so far loving being involved with a group of Christian woman who share about there life in this crazy blogging way :)

We are sharing a favorite photo of ourself, 3 things about me and one thing I've learned from the Influence Network.

I chose this picture from Halloween 2012 because it just shows how we all feel about our wonderful life together. I love these two boys more than words could express!
Excuse the green baby... Aston was Hulk for Halloween last year :)

So 3 things about me!

1. I am first and foremost a wife and mommy to these wonderful men in my life! I married my wonderful husband in January 2009 and our adventure has never stopped! We welcomed this sweet little boy into our lives on September 17, 2011 and we love how he has changed our lives! God has blessed me immensely! Seriously the best job in the whole world!

2. I am a sugar addict! Dessert? I always say yes! I love anything sweet, especially cotton candy and marshmallows! It's a good thing I don't keep them around too often!

3. We share a house with my wonderful mom and I am very thankful she has allowed us to invade and take over her home :) (blog post about this tomorrow)

One thing I've learned from the Influence Network:

Okay, something I've learned recently is the importance of being okay with where God has me and not comparing myself to others. I've looked through forums about how others have struggled with wanting to grow there blogs faster and obsessing about how to be more successful. I was in the same place when the new year began and God has really shown me, with the help of reading through the forums, that He has me and my little blog where He wants me.

Thank you for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you! And can't wait to make new friends through this link-up!
