Hello friends! My name is Diona and I am so glad that you are here! I am a follower of Christ, mother of three and a grateful wife to an incredible man, Rick, a.k.a. “the boyfriend“! One of the many reasons he is so awesome is that he has cooked us gourmet dinners every night for almost a year. I keep thinking it’s a dream and I don’t want to wake up. But hey, if he enjoys it, who am I to take it from the man?!
Most days you can find me and the kids at home, quietly reading, sharing toys, or taking naps all at the same time, especially since I only asked them once to do so, and….wait, that’s not my family.
Yea, we are the total opposite of everything I just said.
We have three beautiful – ly loud children, ages 2-10, that we are so thankful for but wished they slept until 8am.
We live in Orange County, California, where we can enjoy tons of parks (free), beaches (free), and Disneyland (super expensive so that’s all we do) !
