I like to ask kids what they want to be when they grow up because I'm still in the market for an adult life.  I'm currently an Information Security Analyst part-time and a wife and mom full-time.  I've got a business degree and a Master's in Education.  I've been a bank teller and an elementary teacher.  I feel right at home with my 7th grade Small Group girls because who doesn't love SourPatch Kids and wheelchair races and Jesus?  I think I've got a writer trapped inside my head and I'm looking for an outlet.  Awkward just seems to find me. You have no idea how many times I've told Bunny about my day only to have him shake his head and say, "Stuff like that only happens to you."  I've finally learned to find the humor in this crazy life and I want to share it with you.  

My name is Candice and I'm in the Mitten.  I used to tell non-Michiganders that I was north of Detroit, but now that Flint is on everyone's radar, that's a more accurate description of my locale.  I've got this super awesome husband that I've managed to trick into making my life better for the last 15+ years.  We have three boys who have made me proud since their day one--just by showing up in my life.  

I've decided that life is meant for living and laughing.  

I've done it the other way and it just wasn't fulfilling.
