what do you do for a living?

You're lookin' at it! When we moved to Georgia in 2014, I decided to take a risk with my career, and Tom was in full support of it. In fact, I think it was his idea! I've been blogging ever since, and love that it gives our little family such flexibility and allows us to put the important things first. It's unusual, but it works beautifully for us. The initial idea was to help me get accustomed to balancing my time at home for once we have children, while still bringing in an income, but when getting pregnant proved difficult (*see infertility), I stuck with it anyways because it became a lifestyle we both grew to love. 

Where did you grow up and where do you live now?

I was born and raised in Iowa, went to school in Wisconsin (where I met and married Tom), lived in Georgia for 3 years, and currently reside in Nashville, Tennessee. We absolutely love Nashville, but I am wholeheartedly a Midwest girl at heart and will forever feel drawn back there. 


How much money do you make?

Why yes, I did style my hair differently today! Thanks for noticing! You're so kind and inquisitive, aren't you?

How do you make money?

Haha always about the money, isn't it? I make money through various avenues, and it certainly doesn't happen quickly. This post covers it pretty clearly. 

What kind of dog do you have?

Hondo is a Bernese Mountain Dog. He was our dream pupper and we absolutely love his furry booty to pieces! 


How tall are you?

I'm only 5'1" and my husband towers over me at 6"4"! I love being his mini wife, and we constantly laugh at our literal "different views" of the world. We wouldn't have it any other way :)
