First of all - I am so glad you’re here.
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my first post on “the blog.” I have so much I want to share, learn and experience right here with you. From a quick browse of my site, or maybe some stalking on Insta, you have probably figured out I’m a mama to three adorable little girls and wife to a very hands-on hubby and father. I’m a woman with self love top of mind, who enjoys fun fashion + beauty and all things home styling and DIY. Marketing and event planning are kind of my things. My work here goes wayyyyy back and includes early, hands-on experience with events and social media. (The days before Insta had stories, Twitter was basically a follow game and your grandma wasn’t yet on Facebook. Sorry, Grandma Ruth.)
I guess you could say I’ve been blogging since 2010 when I lived in a tiny apartment on 2 Gold Street in the Financial District of New York City. Problem is I moved back to Iowa in 2012 and thought, “What could I possibly have to share now?” and quit writing. More on my life in New York City to come. But for the first time in years, I searched my first post ever and was in love with what I wrote nine years ago: I’m here to report, listen and learn about the beauty of life.
These words could not be more true even nine years later! Life IS beautiful. We just have to push ourselves to see it sometimes. I will be here to report all the good, awesome, wonderful, beautiful things. But I’m also here to share all my failures as a wife, mom, now entrepreneur, and so much more! If we can’t be honest with ourselves, how will we ever grow and live with grace? Lastly, I’m here to listen. Let me say that again, I’m here to listen. Reach out to me. Send me a DM. Email me. Tell me how I can better serve you! Share with me how I’ve helped you. I truly want to hear.
Now if you will excuse me, I need to clean my house. It’s a total wreck. My recent tablescapes on Insta might be perfectly curated and gorgeous but my house needs some TLC.
Until next time friends!
