IMG_9996I’m a southern girl at heart and feel most at home on a big front porch swing with a house full of family and friends. GRITS stands for Girl Raised In The South and I do believe that was by the grace of God 😉 My husband told me I needed a creative outlet other than shopping, so I started this blog. You’ll find a mix of topics here. My goal in writing is to encourage others to look for the good, beauty and adventure in every day life. I’m a mama to two of the sweetest little boys you’ll ever meet named Jackson and Carson and am married to a hot ex-military intelligence officer who, in my opinion, is one of the smartest people on the planet. He told me since I was 16 that he was going to marry me, but it took me 12 years to stop freaking out and say YES! Best decision. We currently live in Jupiter, FL and my two toddlers give me plenty of opportunity to practice reflecting the love of our heavenly Father, which I’m still learning about…and hope I always am. I believe the most important thing in life is loving God and loving others but I’m not always good at it. My best friends are the ones who just “do life” with me, and who help me find humor and adventure daily. Thanks for reading, I’d love to do life with you and hope you find some encouragement while you’re here 💖
