Hello, welcome to my blog. My name is Carra and I hope you enjoy what I have to offer here.

First, I would like to share a little about why I decided to make a blog. You could say that this all started  years ago, when I was in the fifth grade. I began to realize that I enjoyed writing and my teacher, Mrs. Yates, as well as my family,  encouraged me to pursue this desire. Mrs. Yates even entered my work into a writing competition. From that moment on, I started working more on my writing and saw that it was getting better (I’m no JK Rowling but I hope to be a published author one day in the near future).

Fast forward a couple of years later, one of my friends, Michaela, had talked about blogging and I was intrigued. I thought that it would be a perfect place to start my writing career. I knew about other blogging websites but I wanted something new. I opened an account here in 2013 and was so excited to start. Of course, reality set in and things here didn’t get done. I went on my mission for my church and had no one to keep up with my blog. But alas, here I am, trying to make my mark on the world and give you what I have learned. Please feel free to comment on anything at anytime, I love hearing from you. If there’s anything you would like to know more about, I can definitely find it for you and michaela.jpgmake a post, I will even dedicate it to you!

To give you a little bit more background on the people you will hear about throughout my posts, I will talk about them and why they are so important in my life. Michaela is my best friend of almost 12 years. We have gone through so much together and, honestly, I’m not sure how I’d be able to handle life without her. She is a strong woman and she has definitely put up with her fair share of hardships but she just keeps on going. She is one of the most important rocks in my life. She is a mother one a little girl, who she calls Owlet in her blog. She is two years old and is definitely her mother’s daughter. Of course, she has a mix of both parents but when I visit with them, I can always see Michaela in her.

Next is my husband of almost 2 years, Hector. We met when I was 18 and neither of us had13346621_10206825318811742_284444194467045994_n.jpg even thought about dating the other. It wasn’t until I was four months from being 21 that we went on our first date. We went to a haunted house for Halloween because we both love Halloween and I had really wanted to do something for my favorite holiday. We had only been dating for five months when I left for 18 months for my mission. People think it’s insane that I went 18 months without so much as seeing him for five minutes in person but I did it. Was it hard at times? Of course it was but in the end, I came home and 8 months later we got married. We have done so much together in the last couple of years and I know our adventures are only beginning.

Lastly, I want to thank you for making this possible. Without you, the reader, I would not have any point to posting anything.

Please use the tabs above to navigate through my blog to the various content that I have available, there’s truly something for everyone. Also, feel free to comment on content that you would like to see more of.
