About Me

This blog is a chronicle of my journey to finding joy and purpose through weight loss and green living!

My Family!

I live in Dayton, OH, with my husband, step-daughter, 2 cats and 2 dogs.  You will likely find me outside, whether it be gardening, hiking or going on adventures with my doggies. Creating things is my favorite. Sewing, painting, baking, decorating- you name it!

My Fur Babies: Ella, Charlie, Ellie and Carlton.

To say I am an animal lover would be an understatement! I dream of having a beautiful house in the country, surrounded by animals of all kinds (someday I WILL have alpacas)!

This blog is an important part of my journey. So far, I have lost 110 lbs. and learned a lot of lessons the hard way. I still have a ways to go before reaching my goal weight, but I am confident that I will be successful. Originally, I planned to start a blog once I reached my goal weight, but I decided not to wait. I want to share my joys and frustrations as they come. I hope that we can support each other and learn together. My wish is that I can help make someone’s journey of weight loss or environmental sustainability a little bit easier.
