A wife. To an amazing man. Who just so happens to be my very best friend. He also happens to be the most incredible daddy I have ever known, but more about him later…
Together for 10 years...
Married for 8 years...
Two babies later...
A momma. To my two precious babies, who have stolen what was left of my heart. I cannot imagine breathing without them. They are mine and I am theirs, forever and always.
My favorite little boy in the whole world
My dainty little lady
The little loves of my life
A daughter. To the most amazing momma on the planet. A momma who suddenly and unexpectedly became a single momma to four children under the age of 10. A momma who had to find employment and sell her dream home to support her family after being a stay-at-home momma from the time her first born entered the world. A momma who is now an incredible Bammy to my babies. She has set the bar almost unreachably high, and I will spend my life doing my best to be the kind of momma she is.
Our beloved Bammy
A sister. One of the things I am proudest of. My favorite friends in the whole world are my sisters. I want to be like them when I grow up. And I am the oldest sister.
The Meek sibs
The Owen-Luton-Meek-Peele sisters
The Luton sisters (P.S. No more blonde hair. Ever.)
A doctor. I earned my doctorate in clinical psychology and went on to specialize in pediatric neuropsychology. Don’t know what this is? Don’t worry. I'm pretty sure my family and closest friends still have no idea what I do. A blog post for another day…I will say that it was a long road. One that involved living in Minnesota for a year. Away from my hub. One that involved putting in countless hours to achieve the 4.0 I graduated with, even though everyone told me grade point averages really don’t matter in graduate school. Perfectionist? Yes. Proud of this accomplishment? Yes.
A proud day (Again, nice blonde hair, Linds)
A Southerner. I was born and raised in South Carolina. In many ways, though, I do not resemble the typical Southerner. I am not a Republican. I CANNOT STAND smocked children’s clothing (gasp!) and don’t even get me started on jon jon suits (barf). I hate to cook (absolute torture!). To me, watermelon, a summer staple below the Mason Dixon line, is tasteless. I do not garden nor do I have any desire to. HOWEVER, I do love long, hot summers and impeccable manners. I love a good Southern drawl and sweet tea. Monograms are a must, and football is my second religion (behind my first, which is Christianity). Oh, and my favorite word, behind momma, is y’all.

An artist in my own right. No, I cannot paint, sculpt, nor draw. But I can bake a mean cupcake and am a student of cake decorating. One of my dreams? To own my own cakery one day. As well as my own party-planning business. A girl can dream, right?
Official cupcake testers
A craftaholic. If only there were more hours in the day. I have a craftastic wish list a mile long thanks to Pinterest (don’t we all?). I will tackle these projects, one at a time, one day or another.
Hi! Doc Momma here.
So that’s me. Let the adventure begin…
