About Me

I am just a giant nerd! I love to laugh, have fun, and live life to the fullest! I'm full of quirks! I have so many loves and obsessions there is no way I would be able to put them all on paper, but I will try to give you a pretty good idea!

First and foremost I'm a mom and wife. I live in Jackson Michigan, USA with my little family. I have a son who is 14, a daughter 12, and a smoking hot firefighter husband of 15 years! I work full time as a social worker, and love that I am able to help people and make a difference in the world.

I am a big fan of naps! I love anything pertaining to Nesting Dolls!! I enjoy being out in nature, camping, gardening, hiking and walking. I even like to collect rocks (told you I was a nerd)! I love anything vintage, and Boho Chic is definitely my style. I am a total foodie, but I am also a miserable cook. I am both a tea and a coffee person, and I just cannot get enough chocolate and sweets. I LOVE animals, ironically, I am allergic to just about every animal that has ever walked on Earth. I am a big Detroit Tigers fan and that about sums up my interest in sports. Traveling makes me feel alive, and I do it as much as my time and wallet will allow! I volunteer. I desire to make a difference in the world. I love to learn! Honestly, it does not matter what it is, I just love to learn! Not sure why, I have always been that way! I love bold, deep,vibrant colors, but purple is my favorite!I am curious, adventurous, and open-minded! I have a free spirit and an old soul!

I adore swaps, especially internationally, and I'm really looking forward to participating in a bunch!!
