Hi! We are The Swindell Family.

DSC_7587 - Version 2

I am a wife, mom, former elementary school teacher, crafter, fitness enthusiast and author of The Swin Life Blog. I am currently fortunate enough to be a stay at home mom; the most difficult yet rewarding job I’ve ever had! I refer to my husband, Andrew, and my son, Blake, as ‘my boys.’ I am three years into a battle with infertility caused by endometriosis and adenomyosis. (Read about my diagnosis here.) I am choosing joy and facing this battle with positivity. Running, working out and crafting are my stress relief and favorite pass times. I’m also trying to read more books so, suggest away. I spend the majority of my time with my son but I love some good quality adult interaction!

Andrew and I married in March of 2009. We were high school sweethearts (Class of 2003). Married for 8 years but together for 14! He is a mechanical engineer for a consulting firm here in Green Country working in mostly oil and gas.

Blake is our 6 year old son. He is the perfect mesh of mom and dad. (Although I tell everyone he is just a mini Andrew, which I love!) He brings a lot of joy to us and everyone else who crosses his path. He is a thinker and is already busy leaving his mark on the world!

I’m currently pregnant with our IVF success baby girl who will join our family in July 2017. I can’t wait to add her to all our fun adventures and have someone who will be on team mom all the time!

While I love a good plan there is nothing better than last minute adventures with my boys! This blog is my place to share our life adventures with you. I’m sharing my battle with infertility, child raising fun and struggles, teaching ideas, a few of my favorite things and whatever else occurs during this journey of life. Thank you so much for reading. Please make sure to take a second to say hello!
