Who is the person behind the blog?

I am Erin, saved by grace, wife to Scott for 14 years and mom of 4.  

Faith is at the core of who I am!  You can read more about my testimony here.

Coffee and sparkling lime water are my go-to drinks and I have never met a french fry I don’t love.  Let’s be honest Mc Donald’s has got french fries figured out!

I am curious by nature and may ask you 20 questions when we meet.  We love to find everyday adventure as a family and travel both near and far as time and money allow.
