    HEADS UP: Site Under Construction

    Hi guys! I'm working on my blog. New layout, cleaning up old blog entries, adding new ones, etc. Coming this fall, I've got big plans for this space. In the meantime, please let me know if you see anything wonky.

I have my BFA in graphic design and I love making things pretty! In my free time, you can find me playing in photoshop, scrapbooking, and sewing. Soon, I hope to reopen my etsy shops!

I love to travel and thanks to being a military spouse, this love is regularly renewed. Florida, New York, South Carolina, Kansas, and now Alaska are all places I've called home. I do love the occasional camping trip or cruise too.

I love my family most of all and strive to feed my children's natural thirst for knowledge. I'm excited to have finished my masters classes in special education and am looking forward to student teaching in the spring!

  • For the first day of fall, Mother Nature has given us a little present: Very appropriately timed termination dust! For those of you who don’t know what termination dust is, it’s what Alaskans call the first dustings of snow that show up on the tops of the mountains. When the termination dust makes its appearance, […]

  • This week, I want to share some of the tips I learned, back when I was a beginning runner. When I first started, I found the idea of running really intimidating. I didn’t see myself as a “runner” and I felt like that because I wasn’t a “runner” that I couldn’t do it. A mile […]

  • Yesterday was the clothing swap at the JBER library and I did pretty well! I always get excited at clothing swaps because they’re usually pretty chaotic in a way that I love. Like shopping on Black Friday, it’s the sacrifice you make for a good deal. They had a rule where you could only take […]

  • Yesterday was my eighth wedding anniversary. When my son’s occupational therapist found out that I’d been married for eight years, she remarked “Oh, nice! You’ve passed the seven year itch!” I had to laugh at this comment, because my husband and I have been together since 2001. I think we passed the 7 year itch […]

  • I don’t know what happened this week, guys. The week started off so well. We had a long weekend, I spent lots of time with my family, I was feeling pumped, and then Tuesday came and I just … drooped. I still did my running and my yoga, but I just wasn’t feeling it. I […]

  • My boys are back in school and I have big, big plans for all of this “free” time I’ve found as a result. Lots of self-care time. My daughter sleeps for most of the time that my boys are in school, so I feel like I have the whole day to myself! The possibilities are […]

  • The National Park Service turns 100 today, can you believe it? My family┬áhas spent so much time outside this summer and one of the more interesting things we’ve been able to do with our boys was participate in the National Parks Service’s Junior Rangers program. We found out about this program while on a day […]

  • One of the guys who was in my raft with me uploaded his GoPro video of our adventure. You can view more video clips and pictures of his adventures over on his instagram. Thanks, Levi! Click to watch me fall into the water a couple of times, haha! Haha, the best:Whoops.

  • These pages were made to be printed as a 5×7 photo and glued onto the February divider of my planner. They’re like my own cheater version of Project Life. Two pages per month? Much more manageable than a spread per week. The page below has highlights from the month of February: *   (Click here […]

  • I’m so excited to announce that I’m going to be on Just Jaimee’s Planner Team this year! I’m pretty new to the planning world, so I’m still getting comfortable with posting my planner pages online. On instagram, I posted a desk shot that featured my planner, but most of my posts were in closed facebook […]
