There are so many things about me that I feel make up who I am. First and foremost, I am a wife to a wonderful, thoughtful, and kind partner. To this day, I find it incredible that I was able to find my soulmate at such a young age. I met Matty when I was 17 years old, and we got married after two years of dating. We will be celebrating our third year of marriage in July. I appreciate every day with him, even the days where we don’t do anything fun and just watch Impractical Jokers all day. family
We have two rescue dogs and two rescue cats, and we love them all as our first children! I adopted my first dog, Elliot, when I got my first apartment in Ohio. I knew I wanted a dog when I left my parents’ house, and I knew immediately she was the one. She has been a wonderful protector to me, and I believe she’s my soulmate (she shares that title with Matty). Piper came soon after, living with Matty during the second year of Matty and I dating. Elliot and Piper took to each other immediately and they are totally inseparable now. Our two cats are a mother and son duo, and they are classic cats: want our attention sometimes, couldn’t care less others. We love our animal collection!
Lastly, I became a mother to the most perfect, special, and beautiful son in the whole world. I gave birth to Mason last September, and every day with him is incredible. As a new mother, I see life through a completely different lens; I don’t remember what life was like without him. All I know is that I was meant to be his mother.
As this little family of three and our two dogs and two cats, I feel so compelled to make the most of my time with them. With our dream just a little out of reach, I want to focus on my day to day and make the most of the time I have in front of me. One day, we’ll reach our dreams. Until then, every day I have with my family is the most important day to me.
