Enter: Me. And my blog. Which you're currently reading. (HOWDY! and THANKS!)
And this is my sweet lil' family:
This little angel is our two-year-old daughter, Lucy. She is the BEST thing on the planet, and she brightens SO many lives. We waited a l---o---n---g eight years to have her, and she was 100% worth the wait! She is one special little girl. And I know I'm her Mama - so of course I'm gonna say that - but if you knew her ... you'd agree. :-) I promise.
We live here ...
...on a small farm (if you can call 20 acres with 3 horses, 1 dog, 2 rows of berries, and an occasional tomato plant a "farm") ... and we are grateful to God every day that we do. It is perfect ... for us, anyway! :-)
This was the view from my front porch this morning...
I started riding horses when I was eight-years-old ... and I'll never stop. Horses make me happy. That's really all there is to it. The smell of a horse is like heaven to me.
I know it's weird.
My parents have been telling me it's weird since I was eight ...
But. The fact of the matter is I need horses in my life. And I know how blessed I am to be able to enjoy them every single day.
And if there's anything better than being on a horse myself, it's watching Lucy on a horse.
Oh goodness. Seeing that sweet thing on top of a horse -- and loving it -- melts my heart thirty-six ways from Thursday.
And watching her run around the barn in her cute little boots is pretty great, too ... :-)
And Stella's usually not very far behind ...
She's never allowed to die. Or I think I might, too.
But anyway ... getting back to my story:
Aside from loving my family and riding horses, I do a whole lot of teaching.
Kindergarten, to be exact.
I've been teaching for nine years now ... and I love love love teaching these little guys.
Teaching kindergarten is perfect because it allows me to work half-days (just in the afternoons, mostly when Lucy is napping!) ... and get the best of both worlds. Works for me!
OK. So, now you know a little more about Bec!
And here's a little about my blog ...
I originally started Little Lucy Lu just after Lucy was born, in an effort to keep track of her milestones and to keep our friends and family updated.
But lately ... well, I'm kinda kickin' it into high gear! I started getting hooked on some other blogs (Pioneer Woman = my idol) ... and just decided I could write about my life just as easily as the next person! It might not be a very exciting life, but ... I guess that just all depends on who's reading! :-)
And I'm far from crafty or culinarily(is that a word?)-gifted, but I follow recipes and directions pretty well :)~ ... and I figure if I can do it, then anyone can do it!
So maybe I can inspire someone in that way. Who knows!? I'm just on this journey to see where it takes me ... and so far, I'm lovin' it!
I look forward to meeting lots of new friends here in blogland! Thanks for stopping by!
