I have a pretty amazingly simple life.   It might not look that simple from the outside.  I’m juggling a full time job, husband, two children, a part time “side gig”, friendships, and much more.  But I’ve learned that when you prioritize and focus on the people and passions that mean the most, you can enjoy life to the fullest.

I was raised in a small town with great parents and two younger sisters who are my best friends.  I have a very supportive extended family and many wonderful friends and neighbors.  I attended college to become an elementary teacher and taught first grade for eight years.  After eight great years, I transitioned to administration and currently enjoy the challenge and opportunities that it brings.  I’ve been married to Dan for almost 13 years and we have two littles that bring me more joy than I can ever communicate.  Isla is seven, spunky, independent, caring, and smart.  She’s the perfect mix of sugar and spice.  Rowen is five, cuddly, curious, strong willed, and brave.  He’s got a little something extra that brings joy to all who meet him.

So why am I starting this blog?  I have learned SOOO much during each stage of my life.   I have a passion for fashion, positive psychology, and helping children learn, grow, and develop.  I love life!  I love how all the extra details in life can create joy, change, and growth.  I want to share what I’ve learned and what I’m learning in hopes that something I share, post, tag, link or like might inspire just one person to lead a more stylish, happy, and joyful life.
