Hi there! I would like to take a moment and thank you for visiting my blog. I can tell you I am new to the idea of blogging and I know I have plenty to learn from this. I want to take the opportunity to introduce myself to you and let you know what to expect when visiting this site. My name is Marissa and I am a proud follower of Christ. My personal relationship with Jesus defines who I am. I am married and have a beautiful daughter named Emelie Grace. She is the light of my life and I am privileged to be a stay at home Mommy to take care of her every day. I am blessed also because my husband, his name is Craig, and I live with my mom. My mom and I are very close and ultimate best friends. My dad recently passed away a few months ago, so these living situations make it ideal for the ongoing healing process. More about me, well, I am a college graduate with an extensive professional background in medicine. I am passionate about 0helping people and making a positive influence in other’s lives. I am an avid animal lover and activist. Being a stay at home Mom, I am looking to grow an at home business one day in the near future and I will share my progress with you. I am looking to use my blog as a starting place for my network as I lift this business off the ground. I anticipate writing to you one or two times a week. My topics will likely be, well I guess you could say, broad, merely because I like so many things and I guess you can say I am a lady with many hobbies! I plan to talk about my faith, family and mommy experiences and hope to share stories with you. I also enjoy embarking on new culinary adventures, so stay tuned for new recipes and pictures of what I am trying and experimenting with from time to time. I enjoy taking pictures, but I am far from a professional. I am hoping to share pictures and ask questions as they develop with regard to photography. I am open to occasional question and answer topics and seeing what you want to talk about too. I know this is going to be a lot of fun and I am definitely looking forward to embarking on this new blogging journey with you, so please join me and I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks for reading and we will chat soon!
