About Me

Hi! I’m Emily!

I was born and raised in Kenosha, WI. I left when I was 19 to southern California after marrying my high school sweetheart, Jake.  He joined the Marine Corps and we were stationed at Camp Pendleton in CA for eight years.  Following the military, we decided to move back to WI to spend time with family and reevaluate what was next for us.  My heart is in southern CA where I grew up into a woman and learned so much during most of my 20’s.  I believe God has a plan for us, and we are in this season of life for a reason, so I choose joy!  In this season of living in the Midwest, we have been blessed with a beautiful baby boy, Rogue, who is now 18 months old, and we have another baby boy on the way due to arrive end of March!

During this season of life, I have challenged what fuels me, what gets me out of bed every morning, and where my passions lie.  I love fitness.  I have run half marathons, and I am into everything fitness from Crossfit to yoga, so long as I challenge my body and it stays moving!  I love creating meals that fuel myself and my family.  Health and wellness is very important to me, and I want to share that with you through recipes, tips, and advice.  I also love to decorate, dabble in fashion and skincare, all while navigating motherhood and the everyday life.

As a mother, who works a full time job, and juggles life, it can be easy to fall into the mundane.  I am passionate about spreading the word that we should not fall into the mundane!  You were given gifts and talents that are to be used to help people and bring good into the world.  My hope for this blog, and for the other platforms I use, is that you would leave here feeling encouraged; have a desire to go outside and move your body; that you would want to get up, and make small changes in your life that bring you that much closer to creating the best version of yourself!

Thank you for coming along on this journey with me and allowing me to share my story with you!
