just me

Hi there. My name is Brooke. I'm originally from the super small town of Muldrow, OK, where my whole family and all of my in-laws live.

I married my love in December 2000 and shortly thereafter we moved to Abilene, TX where my husband, Toby, served the Air Force for six years, then started working in ministry. He recently (Oct. 2011) switched jobs and we headed further west to Odessa, TX to work for Crossroads Fellowship. Now he is working for Sinar Media doing what he do best: video and graphic design work.
We also have five boys, ages 11, 10, 6, 4, and 2. Naming so many boys gets harder each time! And all my boys' names end with an 'n'. Plus!! our baby girl is due in June.

I am a photographer (professionally since 2008) who has recently taken a super long break and focused the camera more on my little family. Making it a hobby again has been more amazing than I can express. And now I am a Jewelry Lady with Premier Designs Jewelry. I love this job more than I can even put into words.

I am a full time stay at home, nursing, cloth diapering, baby wearing, homeschooling, crocheting, photo snapping, makes things from scratch, natural cleaning, owie kissing, eo using, book reading, hug giving momma. Lots of ups and downs along the way, but were are making it!

I love spending time with my family and being with friends, though i am a complete and total introvert.

I love board games, playing the Xbox, reading, instagram (i'm @the.chambers.crew), words with friends, homemade hot chocolate, homemade pumpkin spice lattes and iced vanilla chai tea lattes, and long chats with my besties.

I love big comfy furniture, snow, the changing seasons, slippers, candles, baking, fall, and flats.

I love life. Though life has thrown me curve balls, especially with Post Partum Depression and Prenatal Depression during my last two pregnancies.

I'm not always patient, or understanding, or gentle, or a good Mom. But I strive to be the best I person I can be for my husband and children.

Most importantly, I love the Lord with all my heart and strive daily to serve him. I struggle everyday in my walk and am in absolutely no way perfect....always a work in progress.

Thanks for stopping by and having a peek! God Bless!
