I have debated for a long time about whether I should start a blog or not, about 6 years to be exact.  And from this site you can see that I finally made up my mind.  🙂  Now what am I going to blog about?  Life.  It’s a simple word with so many complicated topics; family, friends, healthy living, career, money, and so much more.  My goal is to cover these topics from my average point of view and using my average, personal life experiences.

So I guess you probably want to know a little bit about the author of this blog.  I’m not a writer; I’m actually an engineer, math and science rock!  I’m not Megan Fox or Blake Lively or some other celebrity gorgeous; I’m actually 5’3 and could stand to lose about 60 pounds.  I don’t and haven’t had so much money in my life that I don’t buy bargain brand items or use coupons; I actually think I’d always use coupons, even if I was a billionaire.  I’m not a doctor nor do I claim to be an expert in anything; I’m just average at a lot of things.  But to me average is a good thing.  I’ll save that for my first blog topic.  Go check it out, please.

All that being said, I like to think I’m just your average 26 year old girl living in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  I like baking, crafts, and spending time with my amazing family and friends, including my fiancé and his daughter.  I also enjoy spending time outside exploring this beautiful area I live in and going to the shooting range with my fiancé.  I try to be the best friend, daughter, sister, wife (and step-mom)-to-be a girl can be, and I’m writing this blog for all the other girls out there just like me.  I hope you enjoy it and can relate to some of what I’m talking about.  Feel free to post comments!  I’d love to make this a space where everyone can share their thoughts and experiences because together we are better.
