I'm Sunie (pronounced the same as 'Sunny'). A wife to Retired Army Sergeant Kevin, mama to Kaydence, Kameron & Kaylani and owner of FulLoveIt Boutique.
Motherhood was something I did not seek, but rather stumbled into.
I started my journey into adulthood on the tiny island of Oahu, Hawaii where my 16 year old free spirited heart plunged my feet deep into sand and my nose straight into nursing books. Attending Hawaii Pacific University was a dream come true for this lower class, minority girl who grew up as a military brat. After two years my scholarships ended and my funds depleted, so I followed the only path I knew and enlisted in the United States Air Force.
The military life was perfect for me; structured, spontaneous, with a stable income. As a medic I was doing what I loved, and it was this life that led me to the man of my dreams.
He was super handsome, very intelligent, disgustingly cocky and absolutely rude. His heart was pure though and I fell love.
Seven years later, I am knee deep in toys, dog drool, dirty diapers, laundry, yarn and home renovation projects. While my children weren't necessarily planned, they have brought my life so much joy and I am fully embracing/loving all aspects of motherhood.
My husband has since retired his ACU's, and now dons a lab coat . He does lab stuff and works very long hours to provide for his family. I ended my military career to stay home with my kids and muddled my way through a college degree with two kids in tow. My chosen career of Sign Language Interpretation has led me to a culture and community of wonderful people, and while I am not actively using my degree (at this moment) I am proud to be apart of such a wonderful community and to know such a beautiful language. It has also been great to teach and watch my children flourish and become fluent in this second language that we love so much!
I am not a writer and I don't aspire to be one. I am a wife, an avid runner, a crocheter and a mommy who loves all things natural/homemade and documenting the everyday joys and struggles of life. I started this journey of documenting in 2010 after the birth of my daughter to share her life with my family and friends far away. I post regular videos on Youtube (Click Here) as well as these blogs, and I have loved being able to relive these fleeting moments in my children's life.
Please stay, watch us grow and come back tomorrow for more joys, pitfalls, and chaos!
