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!


  1. I was just seeking this info for some time. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your site. I wonder what’s the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this kind of informative sites in top of the list. Normally the top websites are full of garbage.

  2. Hiya, I am really glad I have found this info. Today bloggers publish just about gossip and net stuff and this is actually irritating. A good blog with exciting content, that’s what I need. Thank you for making this website, and I’ll be visiting again. Do you do newsletters by email?

  3. Hi there. I discovered your website by way of Google whilst looking for a related topic, your website got here up. It seems good. I’ve bookmarked it in my google bookmarks to visit then.

  4. I have been surfing online greater than three hours nowadays, but I never found any fascinating article like yours. It¡¦s beautiful worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content as you probably did, the internet might be much more helpful than ever before.

  5. Good web site! I really love how it is easy on my eyes and the data are well written. I am wondering how I could be notified when a new post has been made. I’ve subscribed to your RSS which must do the trick! Have a nice day!

  6. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say you have done a amazing job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Safari. Exceptional Blog!
