About My Family

This is my little family. 

Although there was a long period in my life I thought I was Catholic (seriously) AND we raised our son Catholic, Marque and I are Roman Catholic Converts. In fact, we had very good news during Advent and are finally Catholic in Full Communion. Meaning - my husband's Annulment is done. Our Marriage is Valid. And we were Confirmed/professed our Faith on December 23rd, 2013. It was a long time coming. We were ecstatic.

About me?

Hi, my name is Emily. 50-something wife, mom, writer. Had a great career as a Trade Show Manager, Director of Special Events and an Executive Assistant.  I had my one and only child at 40. He was almost my 40th birthday present.  You did notice that LATE trend. It's a wonder I don't just start over, I'm always late it seems.

I have an A.S. in Communications and a B.S. in Business Administration/Minor in Pre-Law from Florida Tech.
I'm also a homeschooling mama. Loving it so far! We go back and forth between Seton and MODG if I'm being honest, and we are considering putting our son into a Catholic High School in a few years... because we think it best.

My Hobbies are : learning more about my Faith of Choice - Catholicism. Crafting, Making Cards, Bible Journaling, Baking, Canning, and Homesteading. I'm also about to start an embroidery project. AND I wish I could sew.

I am embarking on a weight loss journey and I may start a new blog for that. I'll keep you posted.

This is a picture of Marque and I on our wedding day. It will forever be one of my most favorite pictures of us. We were so happy that day and though our marriage is peaks & valleys like everyone's is... I can say, with confidence, we are as happy today.

He has three grown children that he graciously shares with me. We've been through the Annulment process, but it was all worth it. We also have three precious grandson's and we adore them.

My Blog is about...
  • Catholic Faith.
  • Homeschool.
  • Home - organizing, cooking, etc.
  • Finances.
  • Parenting.
  • And sometimes politics.
I also have a crafty blog… check it out here: Em's Craft Closet.

I think that is about it.

Blessings all!
