Meet Chelsy Renee, the firstborn in our family. Chelsy is twenty-six years old and the “leader of the pack”. She loves being the oldest (even if it has been the guinea pig position!) and takes her role as eldest sister very seriously.
Chelsy thrives on organization, writing lists, and getting things done! She loves the many opportunities that come her way for helping with planning friends/siblings weddings, cooking for events/conferences/parties, and working in leadership or behind the scenes for various projects. Up until just this month, she was employed with the family band as secretary/musician/instructor and worked in many different capacities with that. Her job included coordinating with our graphic designer/webmaster for new designs, advertising, + albums, answering all of the emails, running the blog, and working with our different tour venues in concert promotion. She also took the majority of our candid pictures, shipped all music orders, and responded to emails. Some of her favorite things that she got to do as part of her work were arranging music, teaching everyone their harmony parts, and putting together the wardrobes for our concert outfits. Occasional opportunities to help out with special projects on the farm and at the hotel, added some fun diversity! This fall she was in charge of the canning and as a result we now have many quarts of everything from pickles to salsa to pasta sauce, lining our can room shelves.
As you may have gathered from her recent engagement post, her life has been changing quite a bit this past year! She actually just quit her job in order to have time to plan her wedding and get ready for a new home. (a few of her newly discovered interests are carpentry + interior design! =)) Her personal blog has taken a bit of a backseat at different seasons of her life over the past few years, but she still loves to write there and get up on that soap box from time to time, and she plans to continue that in the future! A few of her main loves are theater (acting + costume design), fashion, music, coffee, journaling, and reading.
Chelsy adds lots of energy to our family and she is always up for adventure. We will miss her so much when she moves to Kansas, but are so excited for her upcoming wedding + marriage!
