MY LIFE IS AN OPEN BOOK... [BLOG CRAWL]



When Beth  asked me to participate in the blog crawl, I was really excited, but- I have to be honest, a little scared to open up my life so much. I try to keep my blog fairly impersonal- but then I thought about how much I enjoy reading little snippets about blogger whom I follow. So- here is a little peek into my life... Thanks Beth!

A girl raised in the midwest who gets swept from place to place with the winds as her state of wanderlust abounds...
 for now,  she has set up house in the beautiful City of Lakes... Minneapolis

Along on this ride is her Swiss prince charming [who you will meet below],
a sweet little oinker, and a tiny pup

 So the story begins...
On a warm Floridian Halloween a" race-car driver" and "Kim Kardashian look-alike" met on a tree-lined street of a little Florida college town. 

  Together they set out on a journey, with a suitcase full of blessings
and an agenda for adventure.
In the nearly three years they have been together they have traversed the globe...

added to their "family"...

 moved five times [once across the country] and endured some of life's most difficult tests- together.

In their pursuits they have found happiness, inspiration, and began down the road on their life's calling... Her in design, him [ well-  thats for him to share ;)]
In the early days of exploring her passion, she started her blog to catalogue all of the things she loved and admired...

Armed with degrees in International Business,  the north winds began to blow and so they packed their bags again...

 Never expecting the outrageous blessings that have become... she has truly begun to make her dreams and hopes come to life, she started her own business designed around the things she loves very most. Helping people, and creating beautiful spaces and events...


The Twist:
Expecting to sell all their belongings by the end of summer and trade in life in America for one in Europe, they once again had a change of plans. But,  this isn't the last stop in their gypset lifestyle...

So - where will they end up next?

Today be sure to visit Jessica over at Lavender and Lilies to read her story 

and tomorrow check out Much Love Illy, where the super adorable Ilene is bound to put a smile on your face!

I love your story and so happy to have discovered your blog. I have "seen" you around but have been too lazy to swing by. But now I'm glad I finally did.
And my husband and I have been fantasizing about having a farm so we can have all sorts of pets running around and "little" Mille is so cute it hurts my heart. Little Trinket too. :)
