Hey y’all! My name is Gillian Andes, I’m 22 years old, momma to Lola (born May 2015) and Piper (born November 2017), wife to Shawn, lover of the ocean, fueled by coffee, and a fitness junkie. I’ve been doing CrossFit and Olympic Weightlifting for 4 years. Yes, I was the crazy pregnant lady throwing heavy weights around. I loved it!
I was born in West Palm Beach, FL, but grew up in Gainesville, FL (go Gators) and Boca Raton, FL. I met my husband in Gainesville at a Christmas party. He will relentlessly tell you it was love at first sight, but I beg to differ. Shortly after we met, we started dating, and a few months later he left for the Army. I stayed in Florida since I was still a high school student. His first duty station was in South Korea; roughly a year later while he was on leave, I graduated high school, and we eloped…basically all in the same breath. So, here we are living on the Georgia/Alabama line, 5 years, 3 houses, and 2 kids later.
I hope you will follow along and enjoy this journey with me. Life is messy, motherhood is wild, so grab a cup of coffee and lets be friends! Oh! And welcome to chats with Gil.
