Welcome! I’m so grateful you’ve found your way to Fill Your Cup Blog! Here’s a little bit of information about myself ~ I have always lived in a small town I love a little north of Pittsburgh, Pa. I was blessed with an amazing childhood, friends and family. Our family camping trips, boating and bon fires were the highlights of my summers growing up. Favorite vacation to date is house boating on Dale Hollow Lake in Tennessee (*fun blog post on this to come!). I also enjoyed marching band and synchronized swimming in high school, then graduated from the University of Pittsburgh as a Registered Dental Hygienist with my Bachelors of Science (minors in education and marketing) in 2009. I have always had a passion for music, reading and writing (*spoiler alert – keep an eye out for books in the future!).

God blessed my life further in 2012 when my husband and I married in September and gave us the best blessing to date on June 12, 2014 when our son was born! I truly don’t know where I’d be without my family. We have been able to face every hardship, challenge and road block together. My husband and I can’t wait to see what else the Lord has in store for us!

While I have been born with many privileges and blessed in many ways there have also been overwhelming struggles. I’m still learning how to find good in the contrast – our periods of dark days usually shape and mold us into becoming better versions of ourselves if we let them. I hope to use what I’ve learned through the trying times to help others struggle less. We all have different journeys to travel through and my wish for you is that Fill Your Cup Blog will help make your journey a little easier. The words and voices we surround ourselves with can either propel us forward or hold us back…so Fill Your Cup wisely!

I’d absolutely love to hear from you with any questions or topics you wish to see more blog posts about ~ so drop me an email to fillyourcupblog@gmail.com!

Carpe Diem!
