This blog is about my life: who I am, where I go, what I wore, and what I made.
Who I am:
I am a stay at home, former school teaching mom, living and loving life with the man of my dreams – my guy – and our wonderful son – the boy. In addition to this family of three, we have a Bichon named Yuki. I love the Lord Jesus Christ more than anything and rejoice that I have life in him.
What I do:
I have been a stay at home wife and mom for over 20 years, most of which also being a home educator. When my son graduated in 2019, I decided to take my love for teaching and nutrition to another level. I am a Pn1 Certified Nutrition Coach with goals for continuing my education in the nutrition and wellness field. Besides being a mom, helping others with their nutrition goals and teaching them how to get there is the perfect job for me. I love what I do!
In addition to the above, I am a winemaker as well as grape grower – vintner in the making is what I like to think of myself – and this little hobby of mine is looking like it has the potential to be much more in my immediate future.
My other hobbies include: photography, weightlifting (I am a bit of a health and fitness nut), and blogging, of course. When I am not grading papers or doing any of these other things, you can find me in front of my sewing machine making a new dress, or searching online for a new pair of Doc Martens. (I’ve kind of had a thing for them since my early teens, and I haven’t grown out of it yet.)
Where I go:
I love to travel! I originally started this blog as a travel journal, but when the traveling wasn’t happening as much as I would have liked, my blog evolved into what it is today. These days my traveling consists of driving to and fro on the back roads of West Tennessee, but should I find myself on a plane, or somewhere out of the state, I will be sure to let you all know.
What I wore:
I have always had an interest in fashion. Even though I primarily work from home, I find it important to dress for the day. It could be very easy to slip into the habit of wearing sweatpants and flip flops all of the time, but that style is not for me. While this blog doesn’t exactly fit the typical fashion blog mold, I like to think of it as one in some ways (self-proclaimed wanna-be-fashionista, is also something I like to think that I am). Here on the blog you will also find me writing about some of my favorites in regards to the fashion world, whether it be purchased or made – mostly made these days.
Stay around for a bit, let me know what you think, and even feel free to follow along. Or, you could just check back again to read what I am up to later. I post at least once a week with topics ranging from domestic life to fashion, a little bit of photography and sewing, and everything in between.
Psalm 118:24 This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
