WELCOME! My name is Crysta. I am a southern girl and grew up in the mountains of North Carolina. I am a proud wife to a hard working man, who makes my heart smile every day. He is my rock and my best friend. I am a mom to a rambunctious 5-year-old step son, and we will be welcoming our sweet princess in the next few weeks. I am a registered nurse for the state of North Carolina. I am a boss, however, I am currently on maternity leave. I hold the title of Director of Health Services/Director of Nursing at a State Veterans Home and Skilled Nursing Facility. I am very proud to serve my veteran community as they once served for us. I am a photographer and will be glad to share my tips and experiences from my small side business. I am an avid reader and welcome any literary discussions.
I am constantly searching for ways to make life easier, as I am sure you do as well. I love discovering time-savers that will allow me more time with my family. Or even an occasional moment to myself to soak in a tub…HA!… just kidding. Who has time for that?! Cooking is always a challenge in my house because of our busy schedules, so finding easy and quick recipes that won’t break the bank is key. I always look for ways to de-clutter and be more organized. Cleaning hacks are my favorite! Us moms have to stick together, so as I share, please feel free to comment and share your experiences as well.
I am busy and exhausted, but I love every minute of this crazy ride called life.
