Thanks for stopping by. I’m Angela, (please call me Angie!)  a wife to my wonderful husband Cory, and a mommy of our two sweet munchkins, Giuliana Grace and Colton John. We live in the suburbs of Chicago with our 2 dogs where we are creating lots of fun memories daily.

Cory and I met when I was 15yo. He gave me his hoody and drove me and my friend home because it was pouring rain… That was the last time we saw each other for 5 years. Cory went off to the Marine Corps after high school, where he served as a Marine Infantryman who deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. Once he came home we reconnected and less than once month later we were dating, and a year later married.

We had our wonderful surprise (Giuliana) sooner than we were prepared for. Our lives changed dramatically. Cory was working entry level jobs while I was a 9-1-1 Dispatcher. Once Cory was promoted I had the opportunity to be a stay at home mom. Fast forward 2 ½ years and we were welcoming Colton to the family. Round it out with Remington “Remi” the Black Lab/Great Dane and Wesson the Chihuahua/Yorkie and we have what I think is the “perfect” family. We have our ups and downs, our amazing days and our rough days. But it is the life I never knew I always wanted.

ColtonGrace was born as a way for me to keep track of all the memories and to share with loved ones and friends. I am so grateful for all of you have chosen to follow our story along with us.

When I’m not wiping butts, or cleaning up spills, you will find me leisurely walking through Target with a Starbucks drink in hand

I can’t wait to get to know y’all! & Welcome to our family!
