I realized that the profile picture that I use on Etsy is a few years old. So I thought I should bring it up to my current situation.

This is me at 38 years old. With 2 kids in the thick of their elementary school years. With a hardworking husband who is a great Dad and a supportive partner in life. Self employed as an artist (whaaat?? that still seems funny to me!) in my shop Carriage Oak Cottage.

I feel lucky to have found some amazing friends. We encourage each other, we root for each other, we laugh together, and we are there for each other.

I don't always feel sure of myself. I can doubt my potential. I can be a worry wart. And I can be stubborn. I wish I cared less about what other people think. And I think I need thicker skin.

I can be shy in new situations, but I tend to be loud in places where I feel comfortable. I love to dance, and I love to sing, although people don't love to hear me sing. :)

I enjoy working out at a local gym a few times a week. I feel that as I am getting physically stronger, I am getting mentally stronger as well. I also volunteer a lot at my girls school. I enjoy getting to know various teachers and staff and it gives me a view into their school day. The girls also love that I am in school every so often..I am well aware this may not always be the case, so I will happily take it for now.

So, this was a snapshot..to be updated again when I notice that my profile picture on Etsy is a few years old. :)
