I never know quite what to write in a section solely devoted to myself and introducing who I am to a group of individuals I have never met. Obviously getting to really know someone takes time…and I’m hoping that you’ll stick around long enough to do just that. If we were meeting in person for the first time, I would suggest we go out for a cup of coffee. I’d order my usual White Chocolate Mocha and you, of course, would order your coffee beverage (or tea if you aren’t a coffee drinker) of choice.
But, since we are merely meeting one another through the power of the interwebs, let me attempt this thing called an introduction.
I’d love to tell you that I had it all together. That I lived in a big fancy house straight out of a Southern Living Magazine. That I had the perfect children who always behave themselves and never, ever get messy. Or that my marriage was still in that state of naive marital bliss. But that would be lying.
The Everyday Me…
I am a wife to a hard-working man…one who is devoted to his family and his country. I am a mama to two little boys named Noah and Jonah, with our first little girl arriving sometime this fall. We’ve traveled all the way across the country twice, lived on the frozen rock known as Kodiak, Alaska and down near the beaches of Tampa, Florida. We are currently making Wilmington, North Carolina our home until the government tells us it’s time to pack up and head somewhere else. I’m a full-time work-at-home mom managing and running my Web & Graphic Design Studio Sweet Southern Media and my photography business, Courtney Kirkland Photography. You can find my photos available for purchase over at Lightstock and I am an “Intro toPhotographyy” teacher. When I’m not running or managing one of those things, you’ll find me finishing up my degree as a Child Life Specialist through the University of Alabama (Roll Tide, y’all). Needless to say, I tend to stick my hand in a little bit of everything.
