It’s 12:43am in Burleson, Tx and I can’t help but stay wide awake as I think about life. As well as having a threenager fighting his sleep because he wants to stay up and hang with Mommy. Which really means to sit next to me while I scan Pinterest and Instagram on my phone. 😂
It’s Saturday July 1st and we just put 3 out of our 5 kiddos down for bed. The Manny Pacquiao fight is on and I see my husband and his friend eagerly starting at the screen to see who is throwing the best punches as well as dodging them. I am sitting back just going over life and I can’t believe I am where I am. I still can’t fathom all the events that have gone down over the past year and a half. I would never have thought my life would be the way it is now. Continue reading “Sometimes life gets sour…”
Our Baptism was amazing and I am soo late on posting about it!!! I could write forever but our video shows it all!!
I don’t even know where to begin to be honest…
Our Family has been through a lot this year over a natural plant that is somehow still illegal in Texas. It does no harm yet people are given ridiculous charges and sentenced to state prison because of it. Our dear friend Casey Mote wrote an amazing Blog too about our family and everything we have gone through since March 18, 2016.
My name is Erica Tucker along with my Husband Greg Tucker. We have 5 beautiful children who mean the world to us.
Our story is long (but totally worth it) so please bare with me… Continue reading “The Tucker’s vs Johnson County”
John Paul White.
Where do I begin?
John was part Duo of the Grammy Winning band “The Civil Wars“. Billboard wrote an amazing article on how they formed and what they have accomplished. Some of their popular songs are beautiful which include “The One That Got Away“, “Poison and Wine“, and our FAV “Barton Hollow“. You may have also heard of “Kingdom Come” which was featured on The Hunger Games soundtrack and “Dust to Dust” which was featured on the 2013 Carrie soundtrack. They have had a ton of success which is normal for such an amazing group. Of course ALL of their songs are amazing even so when they are sung Live. We were crushed when they unfortunately announced their split in late 2012/early 2013. 😦 They had such an amazing vibe and their vocals together were pure magic. Of course we respect their hush reasons on the split but that doesn’t mean we don’t miss the hell out of them. 😉
Wow. Can you believe it is already 2015? I remember when it was New Years Eve 1999 and we were all freaking out because we weren’t sure if it would make it to 2000. ⏰ Time flies when you are having fun! ☺️
I would like to say my year began around July 2014 and the day I attended the “Latch On Texas” Expo with my best friends, Crystle and it was a BLAST! I halfway wrapped my then 2 month old son Jonah because he started fussing. We started walking while knowing he wasn’t all the way secure and I felt a small tap on my should with a lovely lady saying “I can help you with this wrap if that’s ok?” Who would thought that one line would’ve changed my world? Who would’ve thought this lady would’ve been the start to our amazing lifestyle. Who would’ve thought she would have a such a huge impression on my life. Thank you Jennifer H. for approaching me that day. My life changed that moment…☺️
She introduced us the the Fort Worth Baby wearers group. That day they were offering 1/2 off their annual membership! You didn’t have to ask me twice! 😜 Crystle and I signed up right on the spot! How neat was this group! You were able to check out a new carrier each month and keep it to see if it fits you. Best idea EVER I must say! 😉 In my heart I want to eventually be a leader in FWBW because I just feel drawn to those ladies and the many carriers they have. Something just leads me to that group and I just feel giddy before every meeting I attend. ☺️
Now back to the Expo…
This day was my first day to say “F- IT! I am a Women and I am proud to Breastfeed!” This was the day I breastfed Jonah (really any of my kids) in public without a cover (mind you he was being worn so you really couldn’t tell). I remember telling Crystle “OMG this is my first time to do this”! I felt a sudden rush of happiness come over me. *crying as I type this* This is one of the most amazing things a women can accomplish. Breastfeeding isn’t for everyone but try at least is all I ask. 😉
Here is Jonah as we wait to start The Big Latch! He was 2 months old and ALL smiles! ☺️💙
This was one of the pictures we captured at The Latch On Expo. Crystle and I had a blast and this day she became a member of the Baltic Amber Necklace Family! ☺️
I have met soo many AMAZING women after I realized my ways were considered “crunchy” and I fell in love with the joy that is included in that title. There is so much Love and Joy in the hearts of my fellow crunchies. I am beyond Blessed that God led us in this direction. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of friends. I have made 5+ new besties by being myself. 🌼 The one thing I know how to do is be ME. I am accepted in my cloth diapering, oily family, homeschooling, non-vax type of ways and I just want to say Thank You for being YOU which in the end made me who I am. 😎
Wow it is a BEAUTIFUL Day in Burleson, Tx. The clouds and cold front just rolled in during our morning Garage Sale and I feel blessed! We were getting bomb barded by mosquitos and they decided to go away after they felt the winter chill ☺️. Yay for us and our bodies! Lol
And it is HOODIE WEATHER!!! I have been looking forward to this! 😉
Have a Blessed day! Off to close our Garage sale and then off to teach my babies about Jesus 🙏
