About Me

This post is more like a 'Get to Know me' combined with 'why the name of the blog'.

So here we go:
My name is Ann..... and I feel blessed.
Blessed because I am married to the perfect man for me as God chose him for me. Blessed because I accepted Christ and that has brought me so much peace in my life, a peace I never knew even existed. Blessed because I am the mother of two beautiful children that both were miracles to me and to out family. Blessed because I am able to stay at home with them and watch them grow each and every day. Believe me it is not always easy, there are fun days and frustrating ones, exhausting ones and the ones that you are glad you made it through. But I am loving it anyway. Blessed to have been raised in Germany and be able to come and stay in this country - I truly believe that this was God's purpose for me. I love that I got the inside view from three totally different systems (I am from East Germany, so I lived through communism). It definitely adds some life experience! Good and bad. I speak three languages pretty fluently, and I am planning to learn at least one more, probably Spanish, as my lovely husband is Hispanic. And the kids should know where we came from. Blessed because I have a family that I love and love being around.
I feel blessed because I have many interests. I am a photographer - but recently I shoot my family only. I love reading - both German and English books. I enjoyed school, always, and that's why I want to home school my children. Also I want to make my and their and our dreams come true. I am green, meaning I want to make a difference for our environment. I am Vegan, mostly at least. I love doing projects, like scrap-booking or sewing or puzzling. I am also a cancer survivor and that kind of changed my world as I knew it before.
This blog is about our blessings, our family, our children, our life.
