A Splash of "My" Life

Those of you who follow my teaching blog, The Teacher's Cauldron, via blogposts, instagram, or Facebook know that my life is filled with my family (my kids play a big part of my life), crafting, cooking and baking, and it almost ALWAYS has the beach or pool involved. Hence, the name "A Splash of Life."  A little play on words, from A Slice of Life....I love it.

It fits me. 

Let me introduce you to everyone.

This is me.

I am a wife, a mother of two, a daughter, a friend, an educator. You get it. I wear many hats- ha! 
My husband and I are celebrating our 5 year anniversary this year, my girls are almost 4 years old and 18 months. I've been a teacher now, going on 11 years - and every year I get more excited about it! I have my Master's Degree in Elementary Reading and I'm also National Board Certified. 

I had started typing everything that I love, but it got to be so much that the word "Love" wasn't even sounding like a word anymore. lol. So, here's my list of what I LOVE.

(Yes, you'll be following along my progress in the T25 Challenge! My friend is a beachbody coach and she's doing a T25 Challenge Group on Facebook...if you're interested, let me know!)

So, that's a little about me...here's the rest of my "brood."

My husband, Ron...

(haha - a picture of eating food, but it's a special picture..we were down in Key West at Sloppy Joe's)

He's a firefighter...

We got married in 2008....in Jamaica...

And together, we have these two BEAUTIFUL girls....

I refer to them as A and B....because their names are Autumn and Brooklynn. ha!

And I've decided that since I take SO many pictures of EVERYTHING I do, I should do something with it, so that I can look back and remember it. I started this blog so that I can document our life, so that I can look back and share these moments with my husband, my girls, and family, and my friends. I would love for you to follow me on this ride I call life. I'll be posting crafting ideas, recipes, family outings, and just everyday glimpses into our lives...and my ramblings.
I will share the good, the bad, the beautiful, and the ugly. After all, isn't that what life is all about!?

Before I go, I want to give a big shout out to Tessa from Tales from a Blog Designer for designing my new blog! I'm in LOVE with it!!! It's so ME, and she was SO GREAT to work with on it!
