My number one is my faith in Jesus and living it out on a daily basis. I am an introvert and an extravert in one. I am honest, loyal, creative, committed, passionate, and genuine. I am a simple person with a complex personality. I love the little things in life, from a good latte to the perfect fitting jeans to a bright summer day. Being outside rejuvenates me but at the same time I would take cabin life over camping. I am crazy about my family; my husband, 3 daughters, and my 2 sisters and their families. My friends are family. 

Quality time is the gift I enjoy most. I love traditions, like the same family vacation every year, but I also can't wait for my next spontaneous girlfriend getaway. Don't even get me started about food! I vacation to eat (who doesn't?!). If I am not out exploring the world, I enjoy living in the four seasoned state of Minnesota. There are so many adventures to have right in my backyard!

I Love

Sunshine, coffee and devotionals are the perfect way to wake up.

My happy place is on the beach in Greece on a tiny little island that my husband and I kayaked to on our honeymoon.

Bacon and peanut butter are included in my health-obsessed lifestyle.

I love spending long summer days with my family swimming at the lake that is only a bike ride away. 

Travel is my love language.

Photography is an art of observation. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.
