7 Things You May Not Know About Me

With all the fabulous new followers on my Facebook page, I thought this would be a great opportunity for you to get to know me a little better!!

1. I am married to my high school sweetheart!
Briton and I have been dating since his freshman year of high school and my sophomore year! (Yes, I suppose that makes me a bit of a cougar!) We had study hall together, and the rest is history! We have now been married for almost 13 years, have two beautiful kids, and I can’t imagine spending life with anyone else!!
2. I have had two c-sections.
Well, it’s a long story…. but long story short, Henry was in distress when I was in labor, and I had to have an emergency c-section. My scar is vertical on my stomach because it was one minute faster to cut that way and get him out. When it came time to have Lucy, I actually enjoyed being able to schedule her grand entrance into the world!
​3. I am a first grade teacher.
Last year marked the 13th year in my teaching career! That is so hard to believe. In those thirteen years, I have taught kindergarten, first grade, and fourth grade. Eleven of those years have been in first grade. Crazy fact – my first year, second year, and fifth year students all graduated in high school last year! And while I am taking a year off from teaching this year, I still consider myself a teacher! There are some things that just don’t leave you!
​4. I play the piano.
I began taking piano lessons in first grade and took them until I was a senior in high school! I don’t play often anymore, but occasionally play in church!
5. I am the oldest of four​.
I am the oldest of the four siblings in my family! I have one sister and two brothers. I am blessed to be living close to my entire family. And doubly blessed for my kids to grow up with family all around us.
​6. I come from a family of teachers.
My mom and dad are both teachers! My mom teaches pre-kindergarten and my dad teaches high school science. My brother is also a teacher! Crazy! People have joked that we should start our own school.
7. The biggest challenge I faced when starting a blog was coming up with a great name.
I could not for the life of me think of a name! I thought for months about what I would call it. Silly, I know! Since my last name is “Post”, I finally came up with “Just Posted”!
I am grateful to have you reading this and look forward to getting to know you all better! Thank you so much for following along!

    I’m fairly new and love all your posts. I’m a mom of two children (9 and 7yrs old) and live in the Bay Area. Not actually sure where you or most of your followers live, so hoping your posts continue to follow the weather patterns out here. Cute stuff.
