The Ultimate Blog Party

Its my first time joining The Ultimate Blog Party, so bare with me if I sound like a complete newbie (which I am), but I figured it would be a great way to meet a whole bunch of new blogger friends!

so for those of you stopping by for the first time, ill talk a little bit about myself before I get into Fridays Letters. I always get a little weird doing intros as I never really know what you all want to know about me, if anything at all ;) Ill start with the easy stuff. Im a 27 year old born and raised southern girl. Im married to my high school sweetheart, Matt and we are parents to the most adorable (altho I may be biased) little boy, Matthew Jr. Yes, my husband had to have a junior, good thing Ive liked the name Matthew since I was a little girl, cuz now I have two in the house!
We bought our first home 2 blocks away from my parents only a week before we got married, and have been in constant renovations for the past 2.5years. Which, although I love all the remodeling, if I was telling the truth Id have to admit it gets old, real fast. Especially since I work full time out of home for a company based in a different state. I love my job as a graphic designer, but do definitely miss the office atmosphere. Good thing my company likes to fly me up to NYC a couple times a year to go shopping reconnect with my team.

I am a wannabe photographer and take way too many pics of my family. I love them with all my heart and dont know what I would do without them (hense the living 2 blocks away form the 'rents). Since having our baby boy, Ive come to really appreciate how close we all are. Im lucky enough to have my sister watch Matthew during the day while I work. And have both my family and hubs family eager to watch him whenever we need a date night. Next weekend will be the first time we (as in both hubs and I) have left him for an entire night while we spend 2 nights at a local beach hotel with a bunch of friends while we attend the Tortuga Music Festival.

My blog is a little bit of all the above mixed in with the goods, bads, and uglies. We arent perfect by any means, but life is our kind of perfect. Hope you all stick around and get to know us a little bit better.
