I live in La Follette, TN with my husband Luke and my sweet and spunky daughter Amelia (4). We're expecting a sweet little boy in October! We live on a quiet farm in a cozy house, and we love all our farm animals and plants. I'm a teacher working towards my MEd at Lincoln Memorial University, and my husband is in the army while also working full time doing real estate and auctioneering at our family business Longmire Realty. We enjoy staying involved at church, seeing movies, parenting, camping, traveling, and adventure. I am passionate about education and the beauty in seeing children learn and discover the world.
