I am Carmella......
"creative" Carmella in my better moments, but mostly I'm just Carmella..

I am a wife....

This is my hubby and me almost 9 years ago!
I am a momma....

I  "work" from home...I say "work" lightly because it doesn't feel like work at all...it feels like therapy...my happy place....

I am a friend to the world.
I hug....a lot. Strangers, friends, family....every one is up for grabs.
I am the crazy lady at the grocery store that has no business talking to you, but I will find a reason to talk to you
{consider yourself warned}
 I might talk to you about the good looking strawberries in your cart, or maybe even ask for directions to velvetta cheese {don't judge, you know it makes a tasty dip}

I work hard at the things that matter....My marriage. My family relationships. My relationship with God.
I'm not perfect by any stretch of the imagination...and if somewhere along the way you have gotten the impression that I've got it all together...I don't.

Most days you could find me at 12pm unshowered, still in my PJ's.
I sometimes tell my kids, "in just a minute..." way too many times in a row. I want to work on that the most.
I can be a little emotional at times....I take things to heart too much.
I have self diagnosed ADD, and sometimes this means I walk in circles for hours without getting anything finished.
My house needs a good cleaning....I have put lots and lots of other things ahead of this lately and boy, is it showing now.
Most of the time, I am impatient....and I forget the "bigger picture".
Sometimes I forget to tell the people that matter to me the most that they matter to me the most....that nothing comes before them, that I wouldn't be who I am without them....
And sometimes, because I am just plain tired at the end of the day, I forget to thank God for all the blessings in my life.

The thing is...I am a work in progress.
Continual movements to get me to be the person God needs me to be.....
Forever prayerful that I am letting Him lead me in the decisions that need to be made, friendships I need to nurture, moments I need to take more time to savor.

So...that's me....

thank you.
for taking the time to get to know me a little better.....
