On paper, my life is very mediocre or average at best. I have a degree in nothing. Literally, I did not attend university. I have no past extravagant dating life but a brief failed marriage and having now found the ACTUAL love of my life, whom I adore.
My only children are the furry kind (sorry mamas – sadly no tips/hints here yet). I do not excel in hobbies such as: craft (although I am a master at buying things), photography (love taking pictures, but ask me about aperture, exposure, etc and I will look at you like you are crazy), writing (spell check is my best friend), cooking, singing, or anything in between.
I live in a tiny community that does not offer a vast array of exciting things to do at a moment’s notice, my house is not garnished with the latest décor, my sense of fashion is as good as my Mums advice, and I certainly will never win an award for driving – honestly ask my Chris.
So what business does a girl like me have writing a blog?
I find beauty in the normal, everyday ups/downs/average events of life. I am happy with who I am and where I am. I have big thoughts, lovely friends, and a family who loves me unconditionally.
I want to share with you all the things that make me excited. I get a natural high when talking all things homely, including decor and IKEA trips, awkward moments, food, my struggles with Anxiety and general day to day musings. Some things that I love, you may not. Somewhere along the line though, I hopefully will breathe a little bit of inspiration, laughter or at the very least, confidence knowing if somebody like me can find excitement in this “average” life, you can too.
Sit back, relax, and stay awhile. We all know that’s what I’ll be doing….
