Welcome to my corner of the internet. I’m passionate about writing and I have always been curious about the blogging world. I’m hoping to use this space as one of my creative outlets where I will write about:
- Married life (the good, the bad, and the ugly)
- The things I cross off my bucket list (and add to it!)
- My personal quest towards physical fitness and a healthy lifestyle (including adventures and misadventures in the kitchen, working out, and sourcing sustainable, local food products)
- Personal topics that matter to me (you’re getting a sneak peek into my journal!)
I love sharing what I’m learning and thinking about, including my general musings about life’s idiosyncrasies, and documenting the fun that I’m having along the way. I’m always seeking to broaden my horizons, make lasting memories, and uncover the wonder in day-to-day experiences. We only get one shot at this and I want to make sure my life is as complete, fulfilling, and enjoyable as possible.
The Cast of Characters
Me: I am a 28 (and counting) year old marketing communications professional trying to have it all. Sometimes I feel like I’m getting closer to achieving my goals, and other times I feel like a walking panic attack (which, fortunately, others don’t seem to notice). I’m a country girl at heart who longs for wide open spaces, a beautiful waterfront, and a log cabin to call home. One day, we will get there (don’t worry, I’ll bring my laptop and get a WiFi connection).
My husband (JP): He is a 30-something trades guy who is always building, fixing, renovating, or creating something. No project is too big or too small for him to take on and I am consistently amazed at what he can accomplish. JP is calm to my crazy, creative to my bookish, and spontaneous to my practical.
He challenges me to push boundaries, take risks, and get more out of life…even though he probably speaks 20 words for every 100 of mine. He’s also known to fall asleep during movies (even at theatres), get completely lost in a project for hours on end (maybe he’s just ignoring me), and carrying our 65 pound boxer around (the daddy-vator).
Our boxer (B): He is a 3 year old wonderful, rambunctious, loveable brindle boxer puppy who means the world to us. B adds so much joy to our lives and never fails to make us smile. He’s been through a lot health wise, including a bout with cancer, but he has pulled through and kept his spirits up. We have trained him diligently, socialized him carefully, and love bringing him along on our adventures.
My mom (Grams): She is a small but mighty lady who is a big part of our lives. We recently lost my father and Grams fills her time being a grandma to her grandpup, B, and trying to take care of me and JP (we don’t always make it easy). She has countless hobbies and activities and she leads a very active, social, and full life.
We also may (or may not) expand our family at some point. That will absolutely include a second (and possibly third…just don’t tell JP) dog and will potentially include a child or two. We are definitely “at that age” where everyone is asking, but we are still trying to figure out the answer.
Thanks for stopping by and for your patience while I figure things out. I hope you’ll find the content I provide meaningful, relatable, and occasionally humorous. I’m learning as I go and I hope that you will stick around and share my journey with me.
