My name is Caroline TeSelle. Currently, I live in Lemont, IL, a southwest suburb of Chicago. I say currently, because in 17 years of marriage to this amazing man, we have called several places home.
When anyone asks me “Where are you from?” I always say, “How much time do you have?” Since we were married in 1997 we have lived in Maryland, Iowa, Ohio, North Carolina, Illinois, back to North Carolina & back to Illinois. It has been quite a journey! Add to that the 11 homes we moved in & out of and of course, along the way, we became parents to these amazing kids:
We are a close family & we strive to put the needs of others above our own.
I am a self-proclaimed dream cheerleader, but not the kind that stands on the sidelines to motivate the crowd, but the kind of cheerleader that cheers loudly from the stands. I am a dream-encourager and cultivator. Dreaming doesn’t come naturally for me but encouraging does.
I have been writing on this blog since 2007, and the purpose of caroline teselle dot com is to be a place of encouragement & a reflection of the life I’m living portrayed through my photographs and my writing. I hope as you find time to look around my site & read some of my posts, that you will be encouraged.
