{“About Me”}

I feel like with social media it’s so easy to get a perception or an idea of who someone is, but never really get to know someone. If I had it my way, I would get to know as many people as I could, to the core. I’m such a people person and love to learn things about others. I thought I would use this week’s post to share a bit about my self with hopes that in return, you would share a little bit about you!

I’m just going to straight shoot it here! Lol! I grew up in the church and at the center of my core is God. Besides blogging and fashion, I am passionate about worship and love to lead worship at my church. 2 years ago we moved from CT to CA to be a part of the Jesus Culture church plant in Sacramento. I’m a nurse. I became a nurse at the age of 19 and have been nursing ever since. I currently work between 2-3 days a week at a local hospital as a case manager. I absolutely love my job! It’s been a long journey and I am thankful for where I am! I married the man of my dreams 7 years ago and we have 3 gorgeous children. Ava 6, Savannah nearly 5, Judah 3. We originally wanted 4-5 children, but after having them back to back, we decided to put the breaks on due to complete exhaustion!!!

A few random facts: I can barely swim. I love gummy candies and marshmallows. I wear wigs. I’m obsessed with palm trees. I have one sibling. I love diet coke even though it’s terrible for me. I try desperately to eat paleo but I have an obsession with cheese. I always have to sit in the shade outside and I almost always order a protein style burger with fries when I go out to eat. Your turn! Tell me something about you! Thanks so much for stopping by the blog!!
Ruthie xoxo

      Ruthie I admire the woman of God you are. Here’s a bit about myself. I wasn’t raised in the church but gave my life to Christ in March of 1990 and He radically changed the direction of my life and the lives of my three children. I was on drugs and partying every weekend and the Lord took the drugs from me cold turkey. I never went through withdrawals. My life began a journey of love for others that eventually led me to becoming a nurse in 2006.
      Although my journey has had some hard times my eyes have stayed on Jesus. I may not understand everything but one thing I do know He has his hand on me and leads and protects me daily!
      I am now a grandmother to 4 grandchildren that I love deeply and get to be a part of their lives. Our papa in heaven smiles down on us and enjoys every part of each of us.
      Love Deborah

    Hi Ruthie! You are so true we don’t really know the people we meet on social media. I feel the same way and that’s why I try as much as possible to connect my posts to my real life past stories in other to introduce myself. For me blogging is not only about the clothes. Such a nice post you wrote and you look stunning as well!

    I just read your blog this morning (the body image one) then came across this. Some things about me- you may or may not already know- I’m a single mom to a little girl about to start kindergarten, I love intense training but struggle to be consistent, I too love diet coke, also love chocolate.. And I used to be a swimmer from 9 years old through high school so despite being obese at the moment, I have been involved in athletics all my life. Can’t wait to read more from you!
