A typical day in my life includes…

coffee, kids, my two mini doodles, our nine chickens, and my spouse. I work from home so as of late, more so than ever, it is finding time in my day for all the things and reheating my coffee 2-3 times. I run two businesses from home, one being the boutique and another being online fitness coaching. So coffee, emails, ordering, workout, check in with my clients, homeschooling, gardening, running and managing the house, and when life is normal, sports 6 days a week.

I was born…

and raised an Iowa girl. Eighteen years in the same small town and moved as soon as I graduated to ditch the snow for good. We spent eight years in Oregon before making the move to Arizona almost eight years ago.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

SUNSHINE and outdoor living. I always joke that I am 100% solar powered.

I’m listening to…

true crime podcasts, personal development, and always some type of hip hop music to workout and country to get me through the day. I am much more productive with music playing.

My family…

is my EVERYTHING. I come from an extremely close family and have three sisters and fourteen nieces and nephews. We don’t live near extended family so my little family of five here is my everything. I love spending time with my kiddo’s traveling. My husband and I have been together for fifteen years (we grew up together but didn’t date until I was 18 and he was 19 about to graduate college). We spend all our time together and it makes me so happy because that is how I was raised. My parents are the most selfless human beings with the biggest hearts. They are both entrepreneurs so I learned everything I know from them and speak to them daily. Having them as a Papa & Gigi to my babies is even better than having them as my parents. My in-laws are literally a dream. They welcomed me with open arms, embraced me as a daughter, only have boys themselves, and are the best grandparents. 

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

my sisters and parents. We talk about anything and everything and they are my biggest source of inspiration and comfort. They tell me what I need to hear versus what I want to hear.

One thing I cannot live without…

COFFEE. It gives me inspiration, motivation, and sanity 😉

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a real estate mogul. I did RE in Iowa with my family-owned business, held my brokers license in Oregon, and also licensed in Arizona. If not that, definitely an interior designer. 

I’m inspired by…

nature, travel, free spirits – people who don’t let anything hold them back and just go for what they want in life.

The one person who motivates me is…

my kids. I stare at them and just think about them as adults. That is my responsibility to raise dedicated, loving, caring, responsible adults. They are our future generation and I must lead by example.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

soften people’s hearts. I wish we all could realize we are all unique and opinionated and messy. We don’t have to hate others because they do life differently than us.

The perfect day would be…

oh my. A couple of years ago we packed up our RV with the kiddos and dogs and we traveled the lower East Coast for two months. We tried coffee and ice cream from every little town, we saw beaches, we explored and discovered new places every day. It was quite literally PERFECT. My heart aches for that often.

My first job was…

in the kitchen of a nursing home. My grandma was in the nursing home when I was young and I love listening to their generation talk about life so I probably spent more time on the floor than I did the kitchen but I loved it. 

My favorite escape…

anywhere with sand, water, and sunshine. I am a gypsy soul and my heart loves to just GO! Take me to the water and my soul is happy. 

My life…

is beautifully chaotic. We are messy but we love hard. We work hard and play harder. 

I’m currently working on…

building our Arizona forever home and mini farm, scaling my fitness tribe and growing our boutique so we can travel more.

Always…

say I love you. We see daily how tragically short life can be, how quickly life as we know it can change. Always say I love you.

Never…

quit chasing your dreams. We get ONE life, one shot at this. If you want to change then move, you are not a tree. 

Favorite Quote…

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”

Biggest Dream…

traveling full time. I love what I do, I love this phase of life but I am working on building the businesses in a way that allows us to travel as often as we wish. We want to hit the open road in our RV and explore new beaches every day. Find all the hidden gems this world has to offer.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

excuses. We all have them whether they be upbringing, money, life, etc. Some use those as motivation and some use them as excuses.
