WELCOME FRIEND! So glad you stopped by to learn a little about the girl and her family behind this blog! Hope you are ready for a very picturesque tour?
My name is Zan – a Caribbean girl who has made her home in the US. It’s not like I had a choice; I married an American guy, following him was not an option. It is amazing how two people from two different continents could meet and form a life together. Wont’ you agree? Our story is one of interest. We often tell it over dinners when we meet with friends. We usually get responses like, “ah… that is so nice” or “that is amazing”, or “wow, that is neat”, etc. He tells it best so I will leave it alone:)
Meet our three Winter blessings!
Our first little cutie showed up in November of 2010. My guess is that she wanted some of that left over turkey and sweet potatoes! Here she is on her first birthday photo shoot!
Our second cutie, decided to arrive almost 3 weeks early. She couldn’t miss showing up just a three days before Christmas in 2012.
And our little Mr. Handsome came at the end of December in 2014 because he wanted to make his appearance before the new year hit in 2015.
By profession, I am a teacher with an M. A. and state license in Teaching Elementary Education. While I love teaching, I am first a wife, mom, and a homemaker. Therefore, I am choosing to stay at home to create and nurture. Many times, the are hard and the nights are long, but nothing compares to the blessings of creating a home and caring for little ones.
At Home With Zan is all about how we create our home. While my name is in the title, know that this blog is not just about me. It takes a collective effort on all our family members part to create a home. It is our desire that our home will be a place of warmth and welcome for us and for all who may visit. But even more so, a bigger goal is to teach and instill good principles, make memories, and help each other be the best we can be.
What should you expect to see here?
- principles and ideas for building a better family
- budget friendly ideas for the home
- decor and functional organized spaces
- simple touches of beauty for home
