About Me

Welcome to Our Frugal Happy Life! We're glad you stopped by for a visit. Please take a few moments to look around the site - it has something to offer for everyone! And in the meantime, here's a short introduction about Emily:

Emily is married to Michael, who is a full-time pastor in a dual parish in rural Wisconsin. Emily currently works as a substitute teacher in three local school districts. Her primary focus, though, is on being a homemaker.

Emily and Michael stay very busy with church activities. Michael {obviously} preaches, leads Bible study, teaches Confirmation, works with the youth, and much, much more! Emily teaches the Preschool Sunday School class, helps with Vacation Bible School, and helps out wherever else help is needed. In their [limited] free time, Emily and Michael enjoy being together (Fridays are the best day of the week - nobody works!). They enjoy playing Wii, walking their dog Simon, relaxing, and running errands together (since that's an all day affair in rural Wisconsin!).

Emily has celiac disease, which means that she follows a gluten-free diet. And since Emily is not a short-order cook, Michael also eats {mostly} gluten-free! Emily is continually learning ways to cook gluten-free on a budget - and it's really not that hard!

They are expecting their first baby - a girl - in February 2013.
