about me

I am a wife, Mom, Pilates Instructor and NASM certified Personal Trainer. I am a fitness lover, fashion obsessed native North Carolinian focused on living an exciting & healthy lifestyle. I am a dreamer & believer.

I spent my childhood and teen years always being active. Team sports took up most of my active time: basketball, soccer, and volleyball. During college, I was more concerned with my social life than taking care of my health. After college, I entered the corporate world of retail buying and spent my time working & living for the weekends. In 2009, I moved cross-country to Tucson, Arizona to be with my husband while he attended law school. During my time in Tucson, I developed a love for living a healthy lifestyle. We moved back to North Carolina after my husband graduated & I worked in buying for a southern department store chain in Charlotte.  Almost two years later, we packed up again & moved back to the west coast where we lived in Seattle for four years. In 2018, my husband’s job relocated us back to Arizona where we now live in Phoenix with our three young boys.

I don’t like to write but I do like to document my life. Life is about making memories right? My life motto: Be Present and enjoy the little things.  I created this blog as a creative outlet to document my adventures in life.

    If I’m ever in Seatle I would love to do a family session as my gratitude to you, your brother and your parents. You guys welcomed me as if you knew me for a long time even though I could barely communicate haha! That meant a lot to me and even though we never built or kept a friendship, I still consider you and your family as part of my family.

    Great blog! Keep up the good work.
