About Susan

About

Hello! I’m Susan, and this blog is my way of inviting you to be a part of my crazy, fun, and grace-filled life-journey. I've been happily married to my best friend for half of my life, and we have an amazing little boy who continually steals our hearts and rocks our world. We strive to live life to the fullest, and to give God the glory in everything because what may look like our story is really His. I don’t promise that what you’ll find here will always be right, or beautiful, or revolutionary. But I do promise to always be real. I hope you’ll come back often and live the real life along with me!
