Welcome to my own little corner of the Web! I love my family and do what I can to leave as little of a carbon footprint on this beautiful earth we call home. We have become a paperless kitchen family! We make a lot of our stuff homemade. I love coffee and web browsing on blogs/facebook/pinterest, healthy organic (GMO free) cooking, and lots of kisses from Chris, Aiden, Coren and Mason...I am complete. I thrive to make our lives better. I have began a new stage in my life for my children. I want to show health to my children and what better way thru our every day life. I am currently on a weight loss journey and I will be sharing my success and failures on here. I am here to motivate and keep me accountable to reclaim my health and get my life back! Enjoy the ride :)

My Life

My Life Before and Now!

Hi everyone! My name is Kyra, and I live in Southern Oregon. I'm a native born in Southern Oregon. My family lived in the same house growing up my whole life, my parents are still living in that house and will forever I'm pretty sure.

My first husband Nathan and I met when his family moved across the street from my grandparents house when we were just 10 years old. We started dating the summer of my senor year of high school and, and were engaged in October of 2000. Our wedding was a wonderful day, filled with friends and family, on September 22, 2001. Nathan worked at Costco our whole marriage and I had a great desk job the whole time as well. 5 years into our marriage we purchased our first home. We had tried for years to start a family but it just wasn't in the cards for us. I had two tragic deaths 2 years in a row taking both my paternal Grandfather and maternal Great Grandfather. They both had a very short battle with cancer. We had no idea and it was very hard on me. I ended up having a nervous break down in the early spring of 2007. Nathan and I parted ways do to my emotional state. That was one of the hardest things I have ever done or had to do. We still talk when we see each other and hug when we say goodbye. Its nice to know that even though we didn't work that the sore feelings have gone and we can be 2 grown adults.

The fall of 2007 my life changed for the better! I met my wonderful husband Chris. We dated for a short time August and September. We ended up having personal reasons on not continuing the relationship. Well When January of 2008 came around we decided we were happier together than apart and never wanted to be apart again. We didn't do things the way we should have. We started dating on Chris's birthday January 11th and that's the day we moved in together. Fast I know :) On October 8th of 2008 we learned that we were expecting our 1st child and Chris's 3rd. Aiden Christopher was born May 28, 2009. What a precious little man. We decided that with our ages we should start trying for baby #2/#4 when Aiden became 1. Well to our surprise when Aiden turned 1 I was 8 weeks pregnant already! No trying for us :) Coren William was born December 2010. Chris and I decided that we weren't complete as a family because we weren't married. We had talked about it before and we new we were going to be a family forever so why are we not taking that step? So on March 15th 2011 I married my best friend with both of our boys in hand. I wouldn't have done it any different. We ended up booking our honeymoon in Vegas and waited till Coren was 4 months to the day to take our trip. Mom watched the boys for us bless her heart. 4 short days before our plane took off for Vegas we got a surprise of our lives. While on birth control we conceived our 3rd little man! I was already 6 almost 7 weeks pregnant. Lets just say our honeymoon was very low key but nice. Mason Parker arrived on November 29, 2011. This little man was perfect in every way. I am truly a blessed mama!

My 3 sons!
