Here is my beautiful girl, Molly.

I guess that pretty much sums everything up about me or at least the basics.  What it doesn’t tell you about me is that I enjoy the small things and I love this fantabulous journey we call life.  I am not going to tell you that my life has been all rainbows and puppy tails but I can tell you that the struggles of my past have given me a new beginning and outlook.

My blog has been a small idea in my brain for a long time, I actually gave it a half-hearted attempt about 3 years ago, but at that time I was doing it for all the wrong reasons.  Now that I am older, in a much better place in life, and potentially wiser I thought I would give it another go.  However, this time I want to share my favorite things and not what others “think” I should share on my blog.   With that being said my favorite things may be random things that I love such as clothes, jewelry, beauty, food, outdoors, travel and oh so much more.

I love attending every home Iowa Hawkeye game.  Good thing we have season tickets!

Now for the honesty, this blog is pushing me waaaaay out of my comfort zone.  I am by nature a quiet, shy person who is not a fan of being in the spotlight whether it is in front of a crowd or even in pictures.   Even though this blog will be a stretch for me it is a good thing and I am excited to share my new journey and have you along for the ride.

So grab yourself a cup of coffee, pull up a chair, and join me as we chat about this fantabulous life and all of our favorite things.
