I think I’ve started around ten blogs in my life and never did anything with them. There was never really anything in my life to blog about; I just liked the idea of having one. This past November I got engaged and realized then that I would be moving from Illinois to Iowa. That is when the whole idea of blogging came into my mind again. First, I wanted an avenue (other than Facebook) to share with our family and friends about our life here in Iowa! Secondly, most people consider me to be a more quiet and reserved individual, which is true, but I have a lot of thoughts that I want to share with the world. These thoughts range from what I am learning in my spiritual walk with God, all the way to the simplicity of life in general. There have been many things on my heart and mind that I wanted to share but never had an outlet for them. I know my husband, Zach, probably doesn’t want to hear them all the time:) Lastly, I wanted a place to share my creative projects as I have many ideas that just need to come to life! So, if you’re a member of one of our families then I hope you enjoy this! If you’re just a visitor, then welcome! I hope you find this at least a little bit interesting and beneficial.
