About Me

Welcome to Urban Momma...Gone Country!!! This blog is all about my favorite things: cooking, homemaking, parenting, book reviews, and more!! Now that we have moved from the big city to the big country, I will have lots of new things to write about as we have new experiences and a totally different way of life!!
My husband, Tad, and I met at Moody Bible Institute 10 years ago and married in between our Junior and Senior years. My husband continued working in Chicago at the Four Seasons Hotel after we graduated. We had our first baby right after we graduated from Moody, and in December of 2009 we had our second. Our oldest is a strong-willed, bright-spirited girl named Madelynn! She has lots of energy and keeps us busy!! We have been homeschooling her since preschool and she is now in second grade! It has been a blast!

Our second, Judah, turns 3 on Christmas Eve!! He has been a wonderful little addition to our family, and his quiet, contemplative spirit is fun to watch! He is more serious than Maddy, more cuddly, and is starting to find his voice and realize his strength!
Our third is a sweet baby girl names Ruth Aleya, and she was born in February! While having a third makes it quite a bit hectic around here, we are so blessed to have our beautiful family and our 3 beautiful children!
Almost 2 years ago, we moved from Chicago (our home for 8 years!), to Oklahoma, where Tad's family lives. We had a huge change in lifestyle!! From our tiny little 2 bedroom apartment to living in a house with a backyard and a garage!! We love it!
