About Me, Myself and I

Hey there, It’s Candyce

Thank you for checking out my blog. For years, people have told me to document my life and the events that unfold, so that’s what I will be doing here. I’ll be sharing day to day events, documenting my husbands soon deployment to the Middle East while maintaining a “normal” life for our three daughters. While that might seem like a lot, I also am working full time as a 911 dispatcher for our local county. It has been quite messy, there have been tears of both happiness and sadness, but every day I realize how incredibly blessed I am, hence the blog name Blessed-Mess. Thank you for checking it out, I hope you enjoy!

This is my family. My husband, Nick, is in the Illinois National Guard where he has served for the last 13 years. Together we created quite a mess, consisting of three daughters, two dogs and two cats. Our daughters Gracelyn, 4, and our twinados Maisyn and Paityn, 2, have kept us on our toes every minute since they were born. If someone asked me what life is like on a daily basis, I’d compare it to the Illinois weather(where we reside), unpredictable with a chance of all seasons in one day. We are your typical family, just a lot more hormones in one household. This is only the beginning, saddle up!
