About

Most people call me Victoria. I also answer to: mom, mama (llama),  love bug, Troy, (auntie) Toria, and the occasional Vickie. I prefer pretty much anything but Vickie. That is just the one name that never grew on me.

I was born in Yakima, Washington, but raised in Denver, Colorado since I was about 5 years old. I now live in Colorado Springs, and have been here since I married my husband, Brian in 2011. I absolutely love it here! And I absolutely love him!

My husband and I were both 19 years old when we got married and only dated for nine months. Marriage definitely hasn’t been easy, but he really is my best friend and I couldn’t imagine doing life without him.

We have three amazing children together and will be welcoming our fourth soon.  Sarah is our oldest who will be FIVE in October. She is a total girlie girl but loves to play with her younger siblings; especially her best buddy Calvin. Calvin is our little man who is three and a half and the sweetest little boy ever. Our youngest is Grace who is 16 months old. She is the most petite little thing ever but keeps up with her older brother and sister. We are expecting our second son, Daniel, who is due October 2nd.  We also have an eight month old pocket beagle puppy named Rex. Our hearts and home are overflowing!

I come from a large family of nine (I’m the sixth oldest). My husband and I have a total of 23 nieces and nephews between my side of the family and his.

I enjoy many things! Right now my life seems to be focused on family and relationships. I also enjoy working out, bible journaling, reading, cooking/baking, and sewing.

My life is far from perfect, but it’s real. We try to live a simple and intentional life. I enjoy finding the little things to be thankful for. And I am so extremely thankful to have a loving God who died for my sins and covers me with His grace. With a little bit of laughs and a whole lot of Jesus, I really do enJOY this life He has called me to live.
