Hi, I’m Erin.
My family and I live in Eastern Washington. Our son is a senior in high school and our daughter is 23, married and expecting her first baby this fall. I should probably also mention Krypto, our Pembroke Welsh Corgi. He just turned four, likes to bark at the wind and sleeps more than he’s awake. I’m a cat person, but he’s growing on me. Family, and friends that are like family are everything to me.
I’m an introverted extrovert. Or maybe an extroverted introvert. I’m not entirely sure how that works, but I enjoy being with my people, especially at the lake. I love loud and fast boats and old muscle cars and the smell of gasoline. I love music, and right now I think my favorite song is Dixieland Delight by Alabama.
I’m a patriot; a proud American. I love America and am passionate about learning and teaching about our country’s Christian heritage. I come from a long line of military service, dating back to before the Revolutionary War, and I am so grateful for those who serve our country in the military and law enforcement.
I love putting a bouquet of fresh flowers in one of my grandma’s old mason jars, collecting old cookbooks, canning, picking huckleberries, hiking, watching Old Glory blowing in the gentle summer wind, and watching the sun set from my deck.
I’m just a simple gal, but I have big vision and believe that God has put us here, now, for such a time as this. I am in the *arena- I’ve never been one to sit by and watch while the enemy goes after our children and families, and our beautiful country, which is why I started Whatever Girls and am involved in the things that matter to me.
Thank you for visiting, I hope you will be inspired to influence those within the four walls of your home and in your community.
* “It is not the critic who counts, not the one who points out how the strong man stumbled or how the doer of deeds might have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred with sweat and dust and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, if he wins, knows the triumph of high achievement; and who, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.” -President Theodore Roosevelt
