so, who am i?
i'm pretty black and white. i have a simple outlook on life. i enjoy peace and quiet and may seem awkward around people who i first meet, but i eventually warm up : )
i have a deep passion for God.
there has been several incidents in my life where he has shown me who he is and what he is capable of pursuing. i keep that faith deep, deep in my heart. my outside shell may seem harder, but inside my veins are consumed of passion, and my core full of love. i want nothing but to be a pure and heartfelt person and that's what i pray for every single day. to become closer to God, and for him to wrap his loving arms around my family and i, and guide us on our journey of life with strength and guidance.
i was blessed with a man, my husband. he walked into my life years, and years ago. eight years to be precise. when i wake up in the morning and look over at him, i constantly ask myself, "how? how in the world did i get so lucky?" then i remember to have my morning conversation with God, always thanking him for what he has provided for me. my husband is truly a one of a kind. yep, most wives that are happy are going to say that about their spouse, but sometimes there really isn't any other way to put it. he's genuine, smart, loving, charismatic, funny, strong, brave, but best of all he has such a sweet, tender heart that he shares with myself and our kids. trying to express my love for the man is impossible, because it is out of this world.
on a lighter note, i'm an old soul trapped in a young body. intrigued by the 1920's, but have a hippie side. i couldn't even tell you how many different types of tea i have in my pantry. it's an obsession. my kids are two more blessings that i admire and grow with every single day. being a parent has proved so many things to me, and has made life so much more beautiful. i can never have too many perfume bottles or body creams. i love scenty things, and rubber stamps. yes, random. i live in a little farming town on the central coast of california, and i truly love where i live no matter how much i complain about how small it is. getting away to the city is no more than a 3 1/2 hour drive, and coming home to a place where i can walk outside and see the stars so clear is so refreshing. i'm a baseball fan, go giants! hawaii is my therapy. i beg my husband or complain about wanting to go back to hawaii probably 100x a month. anything pumpkin, peanut butter or vanilla is 100% in my book.
mostly, this is me. jenna riley, and i'm here to share. share what i learn, what i feel, what i see and what i do. join in on the adventure with me!
