Who We Are


We’re friends. We’re each other’s better laugh! Since kindergarten we have been there for one another. Our friendship has been through good times, trials, tribulations, successes, and many milestones. We are here to share about our lives, families, friendships, hardships, life experiences, and everything in between! Join us in laughing, crying, and smiling as we navigate through life together! We love to hear your feedback and comments, so please share them if you feel compelled to do so on our blog page. You may also reach out to us by email or on our social media outlets.

Hello! I am so glad you’re here and want to genuinely say thank you for stopping by. Let’s get to know one another! I am 28 years old, have been married to my hubby David for 6 years. We have 2 kids-Amelia, 5, and Everett, 1. We also have 2 dogs and 3 cats…I love animals! I work part time as a an oncology infusion nurse and the other days of the week I manage the Julius Household. Besides the obvious playing with my kids or hanging with the hubs, I love binge watching a good Netlfix series or documentary, reading and journaling, “Marco Poloing” Katie to keep some sort of sanity, and just hanging out at home…I’m a homebody at heart. I have many selfish reasons that I wanted to start a blog with Katie… but what I want most is to make this a place where we can connect to others who are alike and different than us , inspire each other, just be ourselves, share our tears and our laughs. Don’t forget to check out our posts and our social media pages! See you there!

Graphic Designer

Would anyone believe that the hardest part of starting a blog is writing a bio about yourself?! Don’t believe me?…Just sit down and try to figure out what you should share about yourself that will be relevant to all your readers, but also interesting! So, feel free to laugh at what I write too…you know I am!

Now, let’s see… I have a wonderfully, funny husband, Derek, and an adorably naughty furbaby, Raven, the hound dog. I am a graphic designer by day, and I like to consider myself a chef and baker by night…haha! But for real, I work for Heartland Marketing Group in Early, Iowa and I really do cook and bake a lot in my free time (and I’d love to make you something if you ask!). I also enjoy spending time with my five nieces and nephews, gardening with Derek, walking and jogging with Raven, biking (which come to think of it I need to get back into), designing, painting, playing my guitar, and signing in the car (yes, I made that rhyme on purpose)! Derek and I also enjoy hunting down new hole in the wall restaurants to try new food! And of course hanging out with Megan and other friends and family help keep some sort of sanity. That seems like a good list for now. As Megan stated, we are so glad you are here and look forward to connecting with you! Enjoy!
