Hello everybody! I’m so excited to start a new adventure in my life known as blogging! For the inquiring minds who want to know, I grew up in a small Indiana town. Are you reminded of Tom Petty yet? A place where trucks are loud, friends are lifelong, and fun involves bonfires and hay bales. As life progressed, my geographic location didn’t change much. I became a teacher in a neighboring town only slightly larger (we do have a Starbucks). I still have the same amazing friends and then some. And to this day I appreciate a good bonfire in my backyard. However, life is definitely interesting. My family and my profession keep me very busy. In my spare time (what’s that?!) I love challenging myself physically – ran my first half-marathon this year. Well… sort of ran. More like a slow jog for about 7 miles… and then a walk. I digress.
Back to the point. The essence of this little space in the social media realm is hopefully a means for you as the reader to find something to relate to. I’m just a normal person from the midwest. I work, raise kids, and try my darndest to stay sane and keep my head above water. Aside from my random half-hearted adventures in fitness, I love cooking, WW II history, writing, teaching, and beauty products. Lip gloss is my spirit animal and I have a horrible self diagnosed disorder of night time zombie sleep eating. Is that a thing? One of these days I plan on traveling the world, too. Big dreams, big dreams. Welcome to my world!
