Hello and welcome to my little corner of the internet!
My name is Krystal and I am married to my best friend, who happens to be awesome and also happens to be a campus minister. I am a full time stay- at- home mom to our 3-year- old daughter Riley, and our 7-month-old son Copeland. We lost our second child before ever getting to meet him (I miss him and long for him every day). Our life together is happy and sad. It is a sometimes messy, often beautiful adventure.
I am an INFP on the Myers-Briggs – a total dreamer with my head in the clouds who pays very little attention to detail. I’m a type “B” personality all the way. I love just going with the flow, taking each day as it comes (with a great big cup of coffee to kick it off and a nice glass of wine to wrap it up). I am thankful that my husband is a type “A” thinker who brings me back to reality a little bit ;-).
I have a passion for motherhood and being super vulnerable. My name does mean “transparent,” after all. My favorite people are the ones who are willing to bear the depths of their souls and are not afraid of the messy depths of my own. And people who love Chipotle, of course.
Typing on a fresh white screen of my blog helps me to sort through some of the things I am mentally processing, keep a record of life events, laugh at myself, and invite others along for the ride. I have loved connecting with some of my readers and following their blogs as well.
I once had a blog post go viral which was such a crazy experience for me. That may have been how you found my blog! That post was about giving grace to the iPhone mom and you can find it here.
If you are new to my blog, here are a few of my other favorite posts to start with:
