About Me

I'm Amber!

Let me tell you a little about myself...

I feel like this is Chapter 2 or maybe we'll call it Part 2 in my life...

I'm finding myself with an abundance of time that until recently I didn't really have. I spent the majority of my twenties focused on my oldest daughter, Averie. Trying desperately to find a cure for her mitochondrial disorder, constantly racing against time to try and keep her healthy so she could beat the odds.  Always hoping and praying that I wouldn't lose her like I did her brother six years before. All our fighting came to an end in November 2011, when she passed away peacefully at home at the age of 7. (You can read about my daughter here.) I can't explain what it feels like to be a caregiver to a special needs child, but if you can imagine it doesn't leave a lot of free time. Especially with the addition of baby Ellery in Feb 2011, I was one busy momma, with not much time to focus on other things.

Now, fast forward 3 years later its me (the one with ideas!), my hubby(the one who takes my ideas and makes them reality),  and our 3 kids - our daughter, Ellery, son, Everett, and a new baby boy, Elynn. (if you lost track, that means this is baby number 5!).

People ask me all the time how I can get so much done with all the little people running around, little do they know how efficient I have learned to become. They aren't nearly as much work as their sister used to be, so I am finding I am able to turn my attention to those things I love...things that I could sneak in once in awhile, but could never dedicate much time too. I am an artist at heart and I consider myself a dabbler...I dabble in cooking, painting, photography, crafts, remodeling and there are tons of things I want to learn to sewing, woodworking, get the idea.

So that brings us to my little space in the world wide web...

Averie Lane

...named for my son, Lane ( b 8/29/02 - d 8/15/05 )

my daughter, Averie (b 4/15/04 - d 11/13/11)

This is the place where I share with you all the projects and adventures in this new chapter of my life.
Currently, we are in the midst of what we call our "two year flip" - giving a house in suburbia a little love before we look for something new - all on our very tiny one income budget!
I invite you to click the Home Tour tab to see what we have done so far!

I do hope you will follow along with us!

If you have any questions feel free to email me!
