Starting...Now!

Hello everyone!

This is my first ever time attempting to blog. 

I must admit, I was a bit intimidated by the whole idea, but after doing some research and getting myself set up I have to say that I'm pretty excited to begin on this adventure!

In trying to figure out what exactly I'd like to share with you all, I hope that it will be a little bit of everything.  I have a strong passion for cooking and baking, so there will definitely be a lot of recipes!  I'm also quite the thrifty shopper, so I'd love to share my great bargain finds with you all! I'm a total girly girl and enjoy all things beauty related.  I enjoy working out and leading a healthy lifestyle, and I'd love to share my journey, all the ups and downs, with everyone.  Because we all go through it, and sometimes I think that we need a reminder that we are not alone!

A little about me -

Personality: you'll probably come to find that I can be a crazy uptight, super organized, total type-A person!  Part of my journey in writing this blog is to find more peace and happiness in my own life, and I hope that I can share that and inspire others to do the same :D


I hope that you enjoy this blog and that you visit often!  I'm really excited to get this started!
