Go Grow Go! {Formerly- Go Graham Go!}
the carters

Hi there!  My name is Felicia Carter, but I also answer to Sasha Jo, Shush Shush and Mama to name a few.  I really enjoy a warm fire, dark chocolate, salty tater tots, old people, peach tea and french vanilla creamer (with a dab of coffee).  I’m a southern girl and will more than likely call you ma’am or sir.  You can’t stop me.  It really has nothing to do with your age.

I’m married to my wonderful husband of 11 plus years, Matthew Carter.  I married him at the ripe old age of 19 and we’ve been together in the mountains of North Carolina ever since!  He spends his days as a project manager/division manager for a local steel company.  I am amazed by his handy man talents and often feature his smart ideas!  I have been his biggest fan and he has been my biggest supporter {two college degrees, two kids, a crazy blog life and more}.

We have two children.  Graham {born 2007} and Davis {born 2010}.  Both boys are full of energy, are total stand up comedians and teach me every day.  They have me laughing with their crazy antics on a regular basis.  I have been known to share a few of them with readers over the years.  God has truly blessed us.

I am a school counselor by profession.  Yes, my job remains even in a very uncertain economy for the public school system.  I was lucky enough to negotiate a job share situation from 2007 until 2013 which was such a blessing.  Going back full-time has definitely been an adjustment.  I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in 2003 and decided that a career as a social worker was not in my future.  I really wanted to help people on a more personal level.  By people, I meant teens.  So, in 2004 I went back to school to obtain my Master’s Degree in counseling.  Those were some of the toughest, yet most enlightening 2 years of my life.  In 2008 Go Graham Go was created {Go Grow Go in 2013}.  The site started to grow and a new career grew with it.  Social media and being a mom blogger has not only been an eye opener, but it has opened up a world of opportunity for me as well as created friendships that I will likely have forever.

Why Go Grow Go?

This site was originally created to share all of the info I learned while researching products while I was pregnant and after. A few friends of mine were all pregnant at the same time and this site was created to put all of the research in one place for future reference. I had no idea what a blog was when I started, but now, I have created friendships and made connections that will last a lifetime. I not only share my product finds, but share my knowledge as a counselor and my experiences as a mom.  You will find many DIY, recipes and craft ideas that are simple and fun!  Oh, and I believe in seeing things in action, so please don’t make fun of my country accent in my YouTube videos, ok?
Why Simplify, Save, Grow and Go?
This is my philosophy: Make life simple, save money {and sanity}, grow {spiritually, physically, personally}, and go {live life to its fullest}. Go Graham Go started out being a statement about watching my first son grow {Graham} and has become a lesson on how my children encourage me to go and grow daily and was changed to Go Grow Go in 2013.
