Here We Go…

February 1, 2011


Erin Schrader

My name is Erin. On paper, my life is very mediocre/average at best. I have a degree in nothing. Literally, I did not attend college. I have no past extravagant dating life. I married the man that I started dating when I was 15 years old (whom I still adore). I have no children (sorry mommas-no tips/hints here). I do not excel in hobbies such as: crafting (although I did glue store-bought ornaments on a store-bought wreath this year, exciting I know), photography (love taking pictures, but ask me about lighting/angles/effects, and I will look at you like you are crazy), writing (spell check is my best friend), cooking, singing, or anything in between.  My job is a normal 8-5, no lavish title or description to back it up. I live in a tiny community that does not offer a vast array of exciting things to do at a moment’s notice, my house is not garnished with the latest Pottery Barn décor, my sense of fashion is as good as my friend’s advice, and I certainly will never win an award for driving-ask my husband.
So what business does a girl like me have writing a blog? I LOVE life. I find beauty in the normal, everyday ups/downs/average events of life. I am happy with who I am and where I am. I have big thoughts, great friends, and a family who loves me unconditionally. I am blessed beyond belief. Sure, I have moments of doubt/insecurities/frustrations/blah blah blah. I just choose not to focus on those things. So here I am, “Living in Yellow”.  I want to share with you things that make me excited. I get a natural high when talking travel, restaurants, wine, and lip gloss. Some things that I love, you may not. Somewhere along the line though, I hopefully will breathe a little bit of inspiration/laughter/or at the very least, confidence knowing if somebody like me can find excitement in this “average” life, you can too.  Cheers to a new adventure!
Myself & Husband of nearly 5 Years, Shawn. Isn’t he cute? 🙂

My only baby, Maggie. She acts like she owns the place.
{Yellow}:  It is the color of sunshine. It’s associated with joy, happiness, intellect, and energy. Oh, and it happens to be the color of Mac and cheese (No wonder I like yellow so much).
