hi there.

I'm Tiffanie and this is my blog.  My blog is about life as I know it which includes my faith, my family, my dogs, my home, my love for decor, my love for retail therapy, and just my daily ramblings.

After dating for six years I married one awesome man, known around here as Mr. Gherkin, on 12.09.06. You can read more about his lifelong nickname of Gherkin here if you're curious. 

You know how it goes... first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a baby in a baby carriage...

Happily married for four exceptional years, we just welcomed our first child, Preston, in January 2011. You can read more about Preston's miraculous story here. I'm also mommy to two four-legged babies, Sam (my 3 year old peekapoo) and Carter (my rescued Terrier-mix). 

We are still settling in our second home together in a quiet little cul-de-sac in Texas. 

My other loves including traveling, wine (and 'ritas), blogging, a good pedicure and manicure, decorating, the beach, exercising, my treadmill, organizing, Nutella, and I'll spare you the rest.  The list could go on and on. 

I blog for a few reasons 1) to keep friends and family that don't live near by up to date with what's going on in our lives, especially in P's life  2) blogging is therapeutic for me and 3) I enjoy making new blog-friends. Thanks for reading.
