On paper, my life is very mediocre or 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).
My only children are the furry kind (sorry mommas-no tips/hints here). I do not excel in hobbies such as: crafting (although I am a master at buying things), photography (love taking pictures, but ask me about aperture, exposure, etc and I will look at you like you are crazy), writing (spell check is my best friend), cooking, singing, or anything in between.
I live in a tiny community that does not offer a vast array of exciting things to do at a moment’s notice [don’t be fooled by the photo above, Indiana looks much different than those California beaches], 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. This blog has become my 9-5 [let’s be real, 9-2] and I absolutely love that THIS is what I get to do every day.
I want to share with you things that make me excited. I get a natural high when talking all things cute outfits, travel, wine, good deals, cheese [lots and lots of cheese] restaurants, awkward moments and anything in between. 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.
Sit back, relax, and stay awhile. We all know that’s what I’ll be doing….
