Meet me

 

zeldaI’m a midwestern gal blogging about the random thoughts & adventures from my part of the world!

I am the oldest of four from a German-Irish family and the Irish names won out for us kids! It included our sweet cavapoo: Danny Boy (@dannythecavapoo).

My dad works in the non-profit world and my mom is a writer & author. You can check out her work on her website, Whispering Bluffs. The creativity and passion to serve stems from my two awesome parents and I am so grateful for their example and mission!

On June 27, 2015, I became engaged to an incredible man and we were married on August 20, 2016. It was a beautiful time of preparation and planning for the both of us as we navigated the waters of life together – sharing in goals, dreams, passions, desires & love. You’ll find posts sprinkled throughout the blog to my fiancé (now hubby!) with bits & pieces about our engagement.

↬ If you’re curious about our proposal, feel free to check out the post!

↬We had the opportunity to work with Chasing Haben on an engagement film. Don’t miss it!

Check out this stunning video my hubby put together and surprised me with on our wedding day. Ugly crying because he’s so awesome and God is so good & faithful.

Favorite things

↠ Running is one of my favorite ways to relieve stress, think through ideas and experience a great endorphin rush every day! I started running during my junior year of high school in 2010 and ran cross country during my senior year of high school. Since that time, I’ve run 5 half-marathons, countless 5ks and a triathlon with friends. Working out is my way to love my body, take time away from the busyness of life and to help me to be present.

↠ Photography is an ever-growing passion of mine. I purchased a D5100 Nikon camera three years ago to begin the process of dabbling and and learning. I purchased Adobe Lightroom and have been doing head shots & portraits over the past couple of years.

↠ I started violin lessons again and it has been a joy to play more frequently and consistently! I started lessons when I was 9 years old after watching an incredibly cheesy scene from Singing in the Rain and asked my mom if I could take lessons. I played on and off in high school and participated in orchestra during my freshman year of college.

↠ I’m super into organizing & cleaning. It might sound weird, but some of my favorite times are reorganizing and decorating to create a zen environment. I think my style could be defined as vintage minimalism. I’m a big fan of candles, big blankets and mood lighting. My husband fondly calls out, “Marco!” every time I dim the lights or choose to plug in twinkles instead. Can you blame me?! It’s so calming & restful!

↠ I really enjoy bringing people together! Event planning is so much fun and I experience so much joy when planning a get-together. Meeting regularly with family members & friends is such a life-giving opportunity. It allows me to plan other areas of my life in order to be present in the moment and revel in the laughter, great conversations and delicious food!

↠ I love reading and learning about my Catholic faith and the lives of the saints. I am fascinated and inspired by such holy men and women of God who have given us such beautiful examples to walk in holiness and live daily practicing authentic love & kindness to others.

↠ In my free time, I enjoy adventuring with my wonderful husband, spending weekends at the lake with my family, getting together with my ladyfrands, connecting with people on the wonderful world of social media, listening to podcasts, playing violin and watching PBS Masterpiece shows.

↠ Coffee is my love language.

 

Thanks for stopping by! I hope that you’ll stay awhile. 

Xoxo,
