I’ve lived in Iowa for the better part of 25 years (minus a three year stint in Minneapolis, MN after college) and recently tucked one year of marriage to the best guy in the world under my belt. Ben (my husband) and I live in a great house with our parents’ houses exactly six blocks away on either side of us (jealous?)
I’m 100% an adventurer at heart and a few of the career choices I’ve considered pursuing include becoming an activities director on a cruise ship, starting a culinary touring company and getting hired as a historical interpreter at Iowa’s own Living History Farms. Oddly enough, I’m currently working a 9-5 desk job! I love trying new things and my short list of items to accomplish includes: learn how to surf, live in another country, go hot air ballooning, work in a bakery, learn Japanese and kayak in Alaska.
I really do love Iowa, however, the inner adventurer in me is ready to get out. My favorite place in the whole country is California. There’s so much to love – the beaches, the weather, exploring, the seafood, the weather, laid back people…and did I mention the weather? 25 years of bitter cold winters + three years of even colder winters in Minneapolis, has me just dying to get away for a couple of years. No matter where I may roam though, Iowa – home – will always hold a special place in my heart.
In my spare time I enjoy cooking, traveling, eating, spending time with my husband, reading long books, watching Planet Earth and snuggling in my pink Slanket J
