About
I’m a 26-year-old midwestern girl (residing in Utah) who likes to bake and eat yummmy edibles, do artsy crafty things, read as many great stories as possible, try new hairstyles when I’m up for it, wear cute outfits a couple times a week, write all the important words in a manner as entertaining/humorous/thought-provoking as I can muster, make friends, and be REAL. I'm married with a three-year-old son who is adorable and rambunctious and has given my life more meaning and happiness and lunacy than I ever thought possible.
