So let me introduce myself.
Hi, I am Gretchen. I am a native Hoosier and no, I still don't know exactly what a Hoosier is. I have been blogging since 2008. I blog for myself as a way to keep things together and to share ideas and things with anyone who is interested. I just started a paleo journey and I've been on it for a year. Its changed my life in amazing ways. Never did I think what the food I ate could have power over my moods and emotional well being but it can and did. Now that I'm paleo I'm not only physically healthier, I am mentally and emotionally healthier too!
I am married. My husband and I have been married for almost 15 years. He doesn't actually read my blog unless I tell him to read a certain post. He is pretty great and I am extremely thankful for him. We met at Wal-mart when we were both working there going to separate colleges. I was a cashier and he worked in produce. It used to make me so nervous when he would go through my line. My grandpa always said you can get everything at Wal-mart. And now we don't even shop there - ironic.
I have four wonderful kiddos. I love being home. I love almost everything about home. I don't love cleaning toilets or putting away the dishes from the dishwasher day after day but hey, I am willing to make the sacrifice.
I love Jesus. I love grace. I want to love people. I'm working on that one.
I'm a fan of chocolate in all forms. I love living in Indiana because you can get to a lot of good places quickly. I heart the interstate.
I love the beach and I want to see it every.single.year if possible. I don't really want to live there full time, but I do need to see and smell the ocean for a good 10 days at least once a year.
I actually love driving a mini van.
Well, that is all I can think of for now. Hope you enjoyed this peak into my crazy world.
