Hi! I'm Tanya! I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have 4 children. Well, one is actually an adult now, that would be Ashlyn and she is 19! My how time flies! Next is Christian and he is 16 and then my babies, 11 year old identical twin boys. A surprise and a blessing! My husband Nick and I are born and bred San Diegans. We met in 10th grade and married at 19. Nick was in the Marine Corps when we married and we spent the first few years of our lives stationed in 29 Palms, Ca. After having our first two children I knew I wanted to raise them someplace with a slower pace. We also wanted 4 SEASONS and I really wanted a "Little House on the Prairie" kind of life. In 2001 We ended up in Willard, Missouri. It was everything we were looking for and more. That is also where we welcomed Braden and Dalton (the twins) into our family. We lived there for a few years and then Nick's job took us to Walton County, Georgia where we stayed another few years before (also where I started this blog) his job moved us up here to Botetourt County, Va! We have been so blessed to see so much of our great country and I enjoy sharing it all with you! Oh, and we must not forget our sweet Ozzy, our almost 3 year old Rottweiler who thinks he's just one of the boys!
