I am a 32 year old wife to my best friend Chayse and mother of 4 beautiful babies.
We were set up on a blind date by our sister in law I met my sophomore year at BYU. A year later, we married in the Atlanta LDS Temple. Growing up in Atlanta suburbs gave me a lot of life and love for all things southern and somehow I fell for a Texas boy. We sold alarms for a few summers and settled in St George after I graduated from BYU in 2009. Now considering this new Dixie as home, we have four kids born in the "old hospital" where the Oreo shakes and bacon strips were aplenty. After waiting for what seemed forever, we were blessed with our little light Lux (6), and soon after came Zane (4), Zoey (3) and Pippa (1). Not believing in luck or coincidences, they are at times a handful, but mostly our greatest blessings. They provide us with plenty of life and not a lot of sleep. After being diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer just before my 32nd birthday, I came to understand one reason they blessed our lives in 5 years was to allow me to manage 4 children and have a handle on life before starting this new adventure as a family.
Being in the community for the last 8 years has allowed us to establish Saint George as our home and see the love those around us have for our family. These past few weeks we have been blessed beyond measure by many friendships throughout the years and have lifted this burden off my shoulders and is carried by many to help make this so light and much easier to manage. Life is much sweeter with family and friends and we have been so blessed to have such wonderful community strength and support.
