On paper, my life is very mediocre/average at best. I have a degree in nothingLiterally, 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 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. 

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. 

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 want to share with you things that make me excited. I get a natural high when talking all things travel, wine, good deals, restaurants, awkward moments, lip gloss, 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....
