Mom18MonthsMy mom at 18 months. Check out that mohawk!


This four-generations of my mom’s family, probably taken either in ’88 or ’89. Today, about twenty years later, we’re down to two generations.


Me, Mom, Great-Meme, and Grandmama.

In other general news, I’m back at work! Yaaay! You know how it is when you come back to work; everyone wants to know where you’ve been and what exactly was wrong with you. So, I have explained my illness many times, explaining that I had stomach issues, general tiredness, ear infections and a sinus infection and felt generally aweful. The question I’ve been asked, more than once, is “are you pregnant?” NO! And if feeling aweful is a sure sign that I am, then I don’t ever want to be. If I ever feel that way again, it’ll be too soon.

Oh, and now that I’m well, the Longbrakes have some potentially fun projects and plans for the weekend, so stay tuned!

Just a 20-something girl living on the East Coast, trying to figure out life. I'm a wife and mom to two. I'm trying to rediscover my love for long walks, yoga and pilates. But not hiking. I still don't like hills. I was raised at the beach, but I don't like the beach. I like to look at it, but I don't like to swim in it, I'd prefer a pool, thanks. I'm just trying to become the best person I can be -- the woman God wants me to be. That's easier said than done!

Hubby is my all-time favorite guy. A perfect mix of serious, sarcastic, laid-back, handy and nerdy, he is the perfect complement to me. I love his strong work-ethic and the way he always loves and supports me through everything. Some of Hubby's favorite things include: hiking, Virginia Tech football, woodworking, and his family. When I married him in July 2007, I had no idea what an amazing journey we were headed on, and how I could come to love him so much more each day.

Our oldest, Colton, is three years old. He is equal parts sassy and hysterical. He loves all things train, car, bus, truck, and machine related. He has a penchant for made-up words and loves to be the clown of his pre-school class. Our younger son, Nathan, was born this May. He is pure joy and full of smiles! He is such a blessing and a perfect fit for our family.
