creatively working to grow my blog

1 thing I've been dreaming about... 
our is approaching fast and I get more and more excited and anxious every day!

How did your blog get its name? 
Well I sat on it for a while and tried to think of what my blog was going to be about, and it is hard to find a title that encompasses EVERYTHING you want to talk about, I thought this title did that. It's about our simple life...

Who serves as a source of inspiration for you?
Umm besides Pinterest? haha
I would say Aaron is my biggest source of inspiration.

Where is your favorite place to rest and recharge? 
Any small nook with a cozy blanket and hot cup of coffee. Or curled up on the couch snuggling with Aaron. 

Why did you start blogging and why do you keep doing it? 
I started blogging as a creative outlet. I had just moved to the city, Aaron was in school all the time and I was lonely and looking for something to do. I had tried blogging before, but I never kept up with it and I never thought anyone would ever want to read what I have to write. I never thought I would love it as much as I do now, and I could NOT imagine not doing it. I keep blogging mainly because I LOVE it and because seeing peoples comments certainly brings happiness to the day! I love sharing my thoughts and ideas, and I hope my blog keeps growing. 



  1. This is so cool! It's great to read all this stuff about you. I'm glad you blog too. =)

    And thanks for the reminder to add Bossypants to my to-read list. Love her so much...

    1. I can't wait to read Bossypants she cracks me up so I can only imagine her book will do the same!!

  2. This is so much fun! It was awesome to get to know a little more about you!

    You totally need to come visit SF, I don't live there, but I'm pretty close and I go a couple times a year! And I'll let you know how Ireland is after this summer!

    1. I have wanted to visit SF for SO long, hopefully I can make it out there in the near future! I also can't wait to hear about all of your adventures this summer, I will be living vicariously through you!


Connecting with you is my favorite. Thanks for stopping by!
