So with this being my very first blog, I'm going to need ya'll to bear with me as I get my feet wet in the blogging world. I plan to blog about REAL estate, REAL food, and REAL life, but first I thought I'd tell you a little about myself. My former english teachers will probably cringe reading this.
Foremost, I'm a wife. My wonderful husband, Justin, and I have been married for 4 years. Some days it seems like 1 year and other days it seems like 25. Marriage isn't always easy, but let me tell you, it is always worth it. Justin is the best thing to ever happen to me and I love him unconditionally (even when he obsesses about fantasy football and leaves clothes on the floor). He makes me a better person. Yeah I know that sounds totally stereotypical and mushy gushy love stuff. You're probably thinking blah, blah, blah she sounds like the teacher from Charlie Brown, right? I get it. I really do. But when you find someone that makes you reflect on your own character and teaches you how to be less selfish so you can put them first, you hang on tight and never let go.
Okay no more mushy gushy stuff.
Secondly, I'm a realtor. I am about to start my 3rd year as an agent and let me just say it has been a journey. A worthwhile journey, but a journey nonetheless. It has challenged me in ways I've never been challenged before and it has taught me so much in the last 2 years. I love to help people and truly believe my "gift" is a servant's heart. Helping people find their dream home and handing them the key at closing makes all the weeping and gnashing of teeth to close a complicated deal all worth it. I know to the public it seems like we drive around all day unlocking doors and then getting paid all this money for nothing, but it so much more than that. This is not a career for the faint of heart. (more on that in a later post)
Lastly, I am passionate about health. I truly believe that our "Standard American Diet" and "modern" farming practices are the cause of cancer and disease rates skyrocketing. Last year I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism and I am determined to heal myself through food and supplements. I love incorporating healthy recipes, researching root causes, and getting to the bottom of our health issues. You CAN heal yourself with food. Now granted, I am nowhere perfect. I mean I ate Lucky Charms the last 3 days and there's gluten free cupcakes in my fridge. It's all about balance people. I will be posting more on these topics a lot.
So for now, I'm signing off, but keep an eye out for future posts coming soon!
