Frequently Asked Questions
So, why did I start a blog and what is a typical day like for me?
I answer those questions and more right here! For a deeper introduction, read more ABOUT ME.
Why did you start the blog?
With my experiences and the chance at a renewed life, I want to share the challenges I have faced and overcome.
Sharing my life experiences along with creating I life a love and sharing with others is what I am meant to do!
I am a child of divorce, victim of molestation at the hands of my paternal grandfather, wife of a veteran suffering from PTSD.
I am partially blind, suffered a cancer scare which resulted in a full hysterectomy only to find out three months later I had Stage 3b Beast Cancer.
My father died in August 2016 of a suspicious death and I work tirelessly to find the answers related to his death.
Where do you live?
I live in Northern Arizona with my husband of 27 years, Wayne. We have a beautiful, grown daughter Hannah who lives nearby. She is engaged to wonderful man, Kody and the future stepmother to a sweet seven year old boy..
Besides being a writer, what do you do for a living?
Wayne and I formerly owned a property inspection business for 12 years. We closed our business in 2021. We followed our dream (and daughter) to Arizona and purchased a new farmhouse on an acre and a half of land. We are starting a small family farm growing fruit and nut trees, a berry patch, vegetable and flower garden and chickens.
How can I start a blog?
I am not a blogging expert, but I learned from taking a class with Shannon Mattern, Thistlewood Farms, Livinglucurto.com and The Design Twins Teach. These are not affiliate links. I have learned so much from their classes that I like to share them with you.
What is a typical day like for you?
No day is “typical” , but I try to block time so that each aspect of our blog and home life are balanced.
I usually wake at 7am. I get ready for my day by showering, getting fully dressed with makeup. (I find this sets up my day). Wayne usually makes us breakfast for us. I clean the kitchen, lay out what we are having for dinner, take my vitamins and prescriptions and head to the “office” which is a my office space in our farmhouse.
There are plenty of tasks to get done outside. We are building Wayne’s workshop and developing our landscape. Chickens will come in the Spring!
I wouldn’t trade the blessed life I have for anything!
Where can I find the items to purchase from your home?
I have a SHOP! You can find all my favorite things!
How can we work together?
I collaborate with brands and products that I would personally use in my home. You can CONTACT ME to see if we are a good fit!
I hope I answered a few of your questions on why I started a blog and what is a typical day for me. I am so excited you are here!
I hope I can inspire you to CREATE your best life!
