I was born and raised in the Heartland with a love for photography, planning, and gaming. I snapped photos of everything from my friends to the barges that roamed north and south along the mighty Mississippi River.
I studied graphic design in a private college that I dropped out of soon after, and followed my heart (aka LJ) to Michigan, to New York, to Arizona, Washington State, Maryland and now Virginia.
I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2012, but then came Big B in 2014, our first child and little boy, who loves trains, race cars, and music, who happens to be on the Autism spectrum. Little B, our daughter, arrived in 2016, currently an aficionado of anything she can put in her mouth. Those two children changed my outlook on everything from self-identity to time management and everything in between.
I got my hands on a shiny new DSLR in 2012 and started taking my photography journey seriously. I edit with Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop, and use natural light for all of my work. I doodle with the Wacom tablet from time to time, I research our family history, and I am an Affiliate streamer on Twitch.
When I am not taking photos, blogging, or planning, I’m on the couch with my husband watching anything on Food Network or HGTV or doing various activities with the kiddos.
I want to thank you so much for stopping by and visiting my little home here. I hope you’ll visit again! I appreciate you!
