Meet the Nuts

I am a wife, a mother of one (almost two), blogger, and a freelance writer on the side. As a mom, I know what it’s like to wear many hats. I love to be open and share what life is really like being a mom and raising kids because I know it’s nuts!

While I have always had a passion for writing and had a desire to blog for many years, I first started blogging in 2014 after I had been in the hospital for an anxiety attack. I was stressed, overloaded, we were in the middle of moving, and I just couldn’t take it anymore.

After coming home, I realized that life can be a little nutty, but joy can be found in embracing that fact. I realize that I am a type A, task-oriented, driven, all or nothing person (and that’s partly what contributed to my breakdown). But, I am learning to take a deep breath and just be. Be present in the moment. Be present with my kids. And be present with my husband. While I tend to see the world in black and white, I am learning to look up and find the beauty in the rainbow.

After I got out of the hospital, I determined to keep writing. Writing is my outlet. It’s how I process, cope, and dream. Thus, this blog was born. I love to write about my faith, family, and life.

In the aftermath of my first major anxiety attack ten years ago, I am proud to say that I finished college with a degree in Spanish and English… but I still don’t know what I want to do when I grow up.

I am a penny pinching minimalist by nature. I love the simple life. Optimism is my objective.

I am a wannabe crunchy momma but end up caving into pizza dinners and cheap shampoo. I love to crochet, craft, and anything DIY.

I am an oxymoron. I love the beach but live in Montana. I am independent yet insecure. Extroverted yet sometimes worry about what other people think.

I try not to let my insecurities keep me from living a fulfilled, free, and happy life.

I want to wonder more and worry less. I want to find out who I am and who God is. I invite you to join me on my journey as I try to figure out this thing we call life.

I love many things. I love the sunset making the mountains look pink. I love the way it smells after it rains. I love the sky on a cloudless day. I love to laugh. I love to create. I love God. I love my husband and my daughter. I love life. I love.
