"I'm just a small girl with big dreams and a bigger God."
That's how I like to describe myself - fun-sized at just 5"1" and filled with dreams of making an impact on the world. When I'm not being super serious in Instagram captions and blog posts, I'm a goofy, quirky, sometimes-blonde, very non-basic white chick who was probably born with the wrong color skin. ;) I'm a PK, middle child of six, and love fitness, sunshine, cuddles, and movie nights. I don't drink coffee or soda, don't like seafood, and can't see 4 inches in front of me without sticking plastic in my eyeballs every morning. I probably missed my true calling being a forensic or private investigator, so I've channeled my skills into becoming a world-class Google queen.
My dreams consist of writing a book, working a nonprofit, traveling overseas with my hubby, having a few little ones, and changing the world with the love of Jesus. I wouldn't be who I am without the love of the Father - my driving force for all that I do.
My first boyfriend. My first kiss. My first true love. After a year of long distance friendship, he moved across the country and convinced me to marry him. He pushes and challenges me, and makes me laugh the hardest. My biggest cheerleader and best friend.
I'm known in my family as the "cereal killer," and I proudly wear the title. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert, I'm ready and armed with a spoon. Try it on your ice cream, too. It'll change your life. When I'm not indulging in sugary crunchiness though, my fridge is actually mostly filled with salad, fruit, tuna, boiled eggs, and orange juice.
My happiest place is in the outdoors, soaking in the sunshine, hearing the birds and waves or grass moving. If there's one thing I adore about moving to California, it's being able to see the mountains and ocean, and feel the warm sun so often. Chicago will always be my beloved home, but that certainly is one thing it cannot offer!
