About Me

I started this blog in May of 2013 in hopes that by writing down everything that I was thinking and feeling that my life would become clearer. My goal was that in time I would be able to determine exactly what it was that wanted and be unapologetic about going after it. In all honesty, there have been a bunch of changes in the last seven years and this blog serves as my reminder of how far I really have come.

I graduated college in 2012 with a double major in Spanish and Politics. I am currently pursuing neither. By day I manage a cyber security team (it sounds way cooler when I word it like that versus what we really do!) I previously owned a boutique and I’ve done freelance web design since 2014 (although that site seriously needs a makeover!). When I get around to it, my goal is also to build up my beer cheese and pretzel review site, so bookmark it and check back later!

My blogging goes in waves, so sometimes I’ll be super active on here (maybe I’ll be an influencer!) and other days I’m living proof that offline is the new luxury. The topics I focus on have changed quite a bit in the last seven years as I’ve grown up, but in 2020 you’ll see more posts about travel, health/wellness/fitness and about always taking the deal!

I live in Iowa with my husband, dog and cat and these days you’ll usually find me wearing athletic wear, coffee in one hand and my planner in the other!
