About me

I am Eärthea.  I started blogging because I enjoy writing and wanted a place where I could write about my experiences.  Since I first started blogging years ago on a different blog my reasons have changed.  It is calming for me to have a place where I feel like I can be honest about what is happening in my life, the good and the bad.  I love having a place where I can be me.

So a little about me.  I am a 26 year old wife and mother.  I was told by my doctor before I got married that I would have trouble getting pregnant and might need help, so my husband and I were extremely surprised, and very excited, when we found out less than two months after we got married that we were going to have a baby.  We are both the oldest of large families, and would like a large family ourselves, so this was fantastic news for us.  We have now been married a year and a half, and our son is 8 months old.  It has been hard, but I would not trade it for anything.

My husband and I live in Utah.  He works at Walmart as a department manager and is hoping to climb the ladder into upper management.  Utah isn’t where I thought I would end up, I have lived all over the U.S. but call the South home and I always thought it would be nice to live there, but I am loving Utah.  Having a son has changed my entire way of looking at things, and I love how family friendly the area we are in is.

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  This has been one of the most important parts of my life since I was a little girl.  It has added meaning and brought peace to my life in a way nothing else ever could, and has gotten me through times of severe depression.  I love my religion, and I believe it with all my heart.

In college I was diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder.  After the initial shock it was a huge relief.  For a long time I knew something was different about me, but I didn’t know what.  I tried to act like those around me, but I didn’t know how.  I eventually decided that there was something in me that was just broken.  Getting diagnosed really helped me accept and learn to like who I am.  I know now that I am different, but it is not a bad thing, it is just who I am.  Learning to accept myself has been a journey, one that I am still on, but it has made my life so much better.
