About Me

Today I'm linking up with Jenna over at Jenna's Journey for a blog comment challenge. Every day this week there will be a new prompt and I'm going to try and keep up!


Today's topic is "about me." I'm Claire, and I've been married to my jr. high sweetheart for almost two years now. I started blogging right around our wedding, and you can see all the details of that magical day on the "Our Wedding" tab at the top. Justin is the love of my life and we have been through so much in the thirteen years we've been together. 



Most recently, we faced the battle of infertility after trying over a year and a half to have children naturally. I just felt ready to start sharing this journey, and I am slowly posting about it. I blogged during the process, but didn't feel comfortable sharing until now. You can share in that journey by clicking the tab at the top.

I'm an attorney and my husband teaches 7th grace science and coaches. We live in our tiny hometown in Southeast Missouri and recently bought our dream country home. We have a precious puppy Oreo who is and always will be our first child. He is hilarious and I'm positive he's certain he is human.

My husband and my relationship with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ are the two most important relationships in my life. Closely following is both of our families and friends. We are so blessed. You will find me writing mostly about our every day life, and I share my heart for Jesus often.


You can follow me on Twitter and Pinterest. I love both! My Twitter is protected because of my job, but I will gladly add new followers.

I hope to meet some new friends and find some new blogs to follow! Please stay awhile and look around.

  1. coming over from Jenna's. I'm so sorry that you had to deal with infertility; we dealt with a short stint of it before we had our first son, and it really is the worst thing ever.

  2. Just stopping over from Jenna's challenge and I am so sorry you've battled infertility. I've been there too and there is nothing more painful than this heartache. So know, first off, that I will be praying for you. Second, know that there is joy to be found at the end of the tunnel, whatever the outcome may be.

  4. Hi! Visiting from Jenna's. My husband and I have also dealt with infertility for the last 6.5 years. It has ultimately been a blessing for us as we became parents through the gift of adoption. Feel free to visit my blog and read our story. Infertility sucks, but know that God has an amazing plan for your family. Keep trusting Him!
