I'm hallie! Damn glad to meet you!
I'm a mom to three awesome kids--a senior and freshman in high school and a 6th grader--and have been married to my college sweetheart for 20 years. We live in the Kansas City area but called Nebraska our home for the first 25 years of our lives. We're a busy family with lots of sports, school activities, travel, and work.
This site is basically a culmination of my favorite subjects to talk about. It's the stuff I can't stop talking about and have become my passions. I began writing this blog many moons ago (I'm still trying to transfer my domain to Squarespace where all my past content is being held in bondage) to sort out my thoughts and connect with others writers. But as I "matured" and growing as a person, I've learned so many things over the years and this is where I share that knowledge with you. We cover all kinds of topics here (see the navigation menu) and who knows what is still on the horizon.
My hope for you, dear reader, is that you arrive with an open mind and leave feeling better than when you came. My goal is to give you content that makes you feel enlightened, inspired, encouraged and/or empowered with some laughs sprinkled in. What you'll always get is authenticity and honesty because no one has time for fluff or for b.s. If you stick around for a post or two, you'll feel like you've been hanging out with a friend your local coffee shop or on the front porch swing with a glass of wine.
I know there are so many other places you could be right now and because you chose to be right here, right now, I'm forever grateful. I look forward to getting to know you, too (you know that comment section is there for a reason, right?).
Sidenote: If you're offended by a cuss word or two, my site may not be for you. I like to keep it real and you'll find I write like I talk. And I love a good cuss word.
