Hey guys! My name is Danielle and I am the owner and author of Surf, Sand and Sons! I am 34 years old (just turned, thank you!) and have a huge array of likes and interests! I am big into music and going to concerts, I love to travel, especially to family fun destinations! At home, I have my fur babies to keep me going and love to play around on the computer, play video games with the kids and even maybe cook and bake a little bit!
I was born and raised in Oregon, I lived in Portland from the day I was born until I was about 24 years old before moving down to the Oregon coast. I have never lived anywhere outside of the state and don't think I ever will, although I do have hopes to see the world!
I have a "boyfriend" of 8 years, Louie. Its a funny story but we met online, on a video game of all things and would keep in touch daily through Myspace (haha). He came to visit about a year after meeting him online and within a few months he decided it was time to make the move across the country from New York (his home state) to Oregon! Luckily he says he loves it here, no more hustle and bustle from living in a large metropolitan area.
I have two awesome kids, the "sons" behind Surf, Sand and Sons! My oldest son is now 16 years old, I bet you're thinking "Wow! She was young!" Well you are absolutely correct. I had my oldest, Devon, as a senior in high school. He was born just 10 days shy of my 18th birthday. Luckily I had been taking care of my brothers since the age of 12 while my mom worked so i was pretty familiar with what it was like to have little kids, boys even. I had a lot of help with my son from my mom, thankfully! Although he was such a good, laid back baby I decided he would probably be it for me and I went on with my life thinking that. Fast forward to 2011 when I found out that I would be having my second son! Imagine the surprise, my oldest was already 11 years old and I found out I would be starting completely over again with another little boy!
My second little boy, Jordan, was born in 2012. Jordan is my very sweet, kind and sometimes wild 4 year old! He is known for his long curly blonde hair (he doesn't want it cut, that is another battle). He is very good with people, he loves to talk to new people and just wants to be a friend to everyone he sees! If you are in the area you'll probably get a big "hello" from Jordan if he sees you! These two are such good kids, they are pretty awesome and I am sure you would agree if you met them!
I cannot, ever, forget my fur babies! I have 3 cats, they are pretty much my life just below my kids! Orion, Aurora and Vincent are their names. Two of my three cats were rescues and I am not sure yet if I rescued them or they rescued us! Just in the past year I decided it would be cool to rescue a dog. I didn't quite want a puppy but decided if a puppy came along then we'd take it. As I was scrolling through my Facebook timeline one day I came across a post about a little dog who was found running the streets in Southern California and was now stuck in a high kill shelter without his own people in sight. I cannot stand the thought of an animal being put down as a number and added to a sheet of paper, awaiting their fate. The closer that animal gets to the top, the closer they could possibly get to a scary outcome for them. Anyways I decided to find out more information about him. A few days and several emails later we found out we would be putting him on a transport to come 1,000 miles up to Oregon where we would be waiting for him. We got him in September, 2016 and we are so glad we did! Tyson, our chihuahua mix is such a good boy and loves his people! I am sure you will see more on him as time goes on. Last but definitely not least we have our bunny and I bet you couldn't guess his name! His name is, Bunny! Super original, right? He is your average looking grey/brown bunny, but hes so much fun! Jordan absolutely loves Bunny and goes to his cage every single day to put him and feed him hay and treats. Our animals are make our lives 100 times better!
