Hi I'm Avalon

Beach love'n, flip flop wear'n, now married and living in Arizona. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised in San Diego, grew to love the beach, and pretty much anything water related. I am creative, laid back, and am more than often found in front of a computer....digitizing for CAD or machine embroidery. When i'm not there i might be reading a book or sewing something (not cloths). I love reading books with my daughter, and try my best raising a mischievous son. hobbies are like a round robin for me, i like trying different things and then moving onto the next one. what are my goals in life? lol....surviving my kid's early years? i guess i would like to design and sell through a vender. If i can help my siblings in some way i would do that too. I would love to move back to San Diego, as Arizona is a bit warm :) other than that i am 33 and just trying to take what life gives me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church, so not going isn't really something i think about, other than sleeping in lol. There were a few years in my late teens i might have made different choices, but my desire to marry in the temple, make a covenant to remain clean, and aspire for an eternal family decided the matter for me. I love the church. I love the spirit that it brings. Listening to my mom play the piano Sunday mornings, seeing how the spirit has inspired her in her works renews my testimony. Now that i have children, i love the experience of getting to see how they grow in the church and what makes them happy.

How I live my faith

I admit that having young children, it's hard to reach out to others, i often get trapped within trying raise my family. I try to just live by my covenants and show kindness to those around me, if i can squeeze in some peacekeeping between siblings or friends i try lol. I think i have given up peacekeeping between my kids, they'll have to learn that one on their own :) At this point i think of myself as a work in progress, i'm not perfect, and struggle every day to find that young girl who could sit by the cliffs and sketch and be totally at peace, because that's when i know who i was, being on track, happy and feeling the spirit.
