Here we go

Hello sweet friends and family!

one. I am so happy that you are here.
two. I have no clue what I am doing
three. but I hope you stick with me through my blogging journey. 

Blogging is something I have, for a long time, admired from a far.  I think it is a wonderful way to share your faith, connect with others and be inspired by the creativity of such talented women (and men)! I intend for my blog to be a mish mash of things that I love, which include projects that come along with home ownership, recipes I try, day to day family events, my thoughts and ponderings about my faith, a little home decor and an occasional story about my precious first grade class, whom I am getting quite excited about meeting.  Let's begin...

For those of you that don't know know me, my name is Kristin Black and I live in the great state of Texas.  I am married to a wonderful husband, Josh, who works for Texas Instruments as an engineer. We were high school sweethearts and just celebrated our 3rd year of marriage.  We have a super mutt dog named Owen  who is our constant entertainment.  Yes, I am a ridiculous dog mom whose entire camera roll is consumed by pictures of the pup.  I spend my days in the classroom where I get to mold the minds of my amazing firsties.  I teach them to read, write, do math, become scientists, but most importantly, I teach them about respect, kindness, and what it means to work together.  The most important thing you need to know about my family is that our home is built on the rock of the Lord.  We strive to reflect Him in all that we do and maintain a lifestyle that would be consistent with His word and teachings.  My prayer is that my life can be a reflection of Him and you can get a small glimpse of the grace and love that my Father has to offer you through this blog. 

In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.
Matthew 5:16
