Welcome to the Ultimate Blog Party stop! I'm so glad that you came by to visit and I hope you'll stay! I'm Simone. I'm a lover of exclamation points. A lover of God and my sweetheart, J also known as Pastor J. We are newlyweds and getting ready to celebrate our second year of marriage. I'm also a speaker and writer and love speaking for women's and youth ministries. I like to make things, dig in the dirt and create music, messes and yummy meals.
Life has been filled with surprises for me in the last year or so. I call them Peek A Boo surprises because God and only He can allow some of the excitement that has happened in my life.
I'm a mommy to two grown up beauties - Ev'Yan and Jarani. I have a wonderful son in law, Jonathan Mead - who is successfully blowing up the internet with ways to create your own niche and become your own boss at Paid to Exist. I also have another son in law who is just equally creative and wonderful, Orlando (who will make this mama's heart smile when he married my Jarani on May 1st) who in the future will be opening up their very first bakery and cafe'. (Can we say, "Free cookies for this mommy for life???) :)
I have 4 bonus kids by way of my J - Brittney, Jeffrey, Michelle and Ashley. They are all very unique and there is certainly no dull moment when they are here with us. They bring us joy.
I'm a twin to Nay Nay who has been my best friend since we were wombmates. There's not a dull moment when we get together. In fact, last night, thanks to her, she MADE me eat dog food with her so she wouldn't be alone in her quirkiness. (It wasn't all that bad.)
Then of course, life wouldn't be fun unless there were two four legged babies to add to the mix - Mooshu and Selah, shih tzus that think that they are kids, very hairy kids.
I hope that you'll find a place to call home here at chocolatecovereddaydreams. I'm anxious to visit with you and meet some new blog friends.
Nice meeting you! :)
