1 Corinthians 16:14 ~ Do everything in love.

About Us!


My name is Jennifer, but I go by Jenny or Jen. I've been married to my handsome hubs, Bryan, for 19 years. We have been blessed with 3 amazing children, one of which has cystic fibrosis. We have great family and friends supporting us. We love our life together and enjoy every crazy minute that comes with having 3 kids. I originally started this blog as a way to communicate with our family and friends after the birth of our son who has CF, but it's morphed into my own personal journal of our family life. I still use this blog as a way to communicate about Bryce's CF, but mostly you will find stories of our life as a busy family of 5.


In my "free" time I love taking photos of my kids. I am self-taught on the DSLR so sometimes my pictures come out fabulous and other times they aren't great. Over the past year I've had some paying gigs for my photography and I'm hopeful this will grow into something I can do full time as I truly enjoy photography.  We usually make a yearly trip to Walt Disney World, which is the highlight of our year, but the past two years we've had other options on the table. Maybe 2021 will be the year we head back to our favorite family vacation spot. If we could afford more vacations we would definitely go, but for now we are content with getting away to where ever our time and budget allows. 



My handsome hubs, Bryan.

He's pretty much my favorite person ever. I believe in love at first sight because that is about all it took for me to know he was the one. True story! Bryan is a real laid back guy and I'm totally opposite so we really balance each other out. Bryan is a teacher and also runs his own beach volleyball club called Southern Select Sand or S3 for short. Up until April 2017 he was the head varsity coach at Pope High School, but he stepped down to focus on growing his beach club. He lead the Pope High School volleyball team to 3 consecutive state championships (2009, 2010, 2011). Bryan recently took the head volleyball coaching job at Etowah High School. His first season with Etowah was Fall 2020, which was interesting to say-the-least due to COVID. He loves to cheer on the Georgia Bulldogs, take naps, eat sandwiches, coach indoor and beach volleyball, shooting guns, making our kids laugh and last but not least, me!

Our little lady! 


Sydney is 17 years old and is in 12th grade. She displays the typical first born child traits: confident, independent, a natural leader, bossy. She is athletic and has been playing soccer for 11 years. Sadly the last two seasons haven't gone as she hoped; two ACL injuries. One on each knee. She is rehabbing the right knee currently and is hoping to be cleared to play a game or two towards the end of high school season 2021. She has started applying to colleges so we have officially entered into new territory that is a mix of bittersweet emotions!

Our baby girl! 

Jordyn is 15-years-old and is in the 9th grade. She is the Freshman class Vice President and takes her school work very seriously. When she is not playing NL soccer you can find her sketching and painting. She is fantastic artist and is extremely funny! She is genuinely a sweet girl and very compassionate towards others, but also has quite the feisty side when needed.

The Boy!


God must have known our family needed a boy and He delivered in a big way. Bryce has been shaking things up since the day he was born. Bryce is 12-years-old and very entertaining. He is in 6th grade and definitely keeps everyone on their toes. He is full of energy and loves life. He is a friend to all and accepts anyone and everyone. He started playing soccer in hopes of releasing some of that energy when he was 5-years-old. His favorite position to play is keeper, which is a job he takes very seriously. Bryce was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at 3 weeks old - caught by the state's newborn screening. The news came as a complete shock to our family. Bryan and I had no idea we were carriers as there is no family history for either of us. I didn't even know what CF was until the day Bryce was diagnosed.
