My name is Christi. I live in San Diego, CA with my seriously wonderful husband, our two kids, one dog, and three chickens.
I love Jesus. I need Him. Every day. When I’m walking alongside Him, everything seems clear and makes sense (even the challenges). When I’m not, it feels like I’m navigating through fog.
I’m passionate about health and balance, both for myself and those around me. Part of what supports my own health and balance is having a home that is beautiful and orderly (at least to the best of my budget and abilities).
I love being married. Grant and I will reach our 10-year anniversary this September. I’m amazed at how quickly the years have flown. But I also can’t seem to picture how I ever lived without him. His existence in my life is a daily reminder of God’s special love for His children.
I love motherhood and positively adore our two munchkins. I can’t even begin to count all the ways they have changed me. They are beautiful souls and I feel privileged and awestruck that I get to be one of the two major influencers in their lives.
Before having kids, I was the good student. The professional. I worked my way up a few rungs in the corporate ladder, ran a marathon, earned a couple master’s degrees, and planned on one day getting the doctorate. I was responsible and figured motherhood would only continue to build my awesome level of maturity.
What I didn’t anticipate was that from the moment I became a mom three years ago, pieces of the adult I had become started chipping away, making room for a person I didn’t really expect to see.
I still geek out on crafts.
I still invest way too much effort on drawings.
I still have a slight obsession with Crayola. (I know the names of the colors like the back of my hand, and I still prefer to arrange my markers in rainbow order.)
And you better believe I’m training the kids to follow suit.
