Hi!  I’m Anna! I started this blog as a way to chronicle our lives and all the things I’m learning about marriage, parenting, faith, fitness, and fun.

married my sweet husband, Kevin, in October 2012.  He is the answer to my prayers and more. He’s my best friend and greatest encouragement, gives me reasons to laugh and smile everyday, and is the one I love more than anything in this world.

When I married Kevin, I officially became Anna Belle (a name the boys started calling me a long time ago) to two of our precious boys, K.C. and Kaden, my pride and joy.  They bring so much happiness into our days and I can’t even remember my life before them.

Last year, we welcomed our third son, Caleb, to our family. He is the happiest, sweetest, and funniest little boy. He fills my heart will so much love, and to say we are all smitten by him is an understatement. I thank God every day He saw fit to make me his mama!

Jesus is my best friend, but I’m far from perfect.  I fail over and over.  I’ve experienced His grace, mercy and blessings in ways I couldn’t ever image (and I wouldn’t change any of them).  I believe that teaching our boys about Christ’s love is the most important thing, and I pray that our lives reflect Him and our love for Him.

I love to run and believe having a healthy lifestyle is important.  I believe that having a plan is key when it comes to exercising and eating healthy.  I try to fit in a good workout most days of the week in the midst of all our busyness and make healthy living a natural part of my family’s lifestyle.

Life should be fun and full, I think. I feel so blessed to have the family and friends that I have and a career that allows me to do a little bit of everything I love.  I love learning about practically anything, but I also like to just chill. Relaxing has never been my forte, but I’m quite laid back. I won’t say I always use the right words, but please don’t confuse “your” and “you’re.” I’ve always been fiercely independent and am extremely optimistic. I want to make the world a better place. My eyes get teary when I read “The Giving Tree.”   I could read books of quotations all day long.

I want to be a better person – growth is an amazing thing. I believe you’re never too old to grow, to learn, to dream and for that matter, say “please” and “thank you.”  I try to look for the best in every situation and everyone. I believe optimism is key. Mostly, I’m so grateful for the grace that was given freely to me by my Savior – it’s the most amazing thing!

About me? It’s really not.
