If there’s a coffee shop nearby you'll find me at it; nestled in a cozy corner, sipping an oat milk vanilla latte, pen or book in hand. 

My passport isn’t nearly as full as it needs to be and I’m a sucker for personality tests (ENFP & enneagram 8w7 here).

English accents are what I opt to speak in when I’m feeling silly and if I laugh most everyone in the room will hear it. 

My Creator mixed an extra dose of passion in when He made me and I cannot help but lace my expressions and relationships with it.

I’m a Jesus loving, coffee drinking, military spouse, who cherishes her fur babies, adores her friends and knows she married up.



“One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in his temple.”

Psalms 27:4 ESV

I believe we were made for a relationship with each other and our Heavenly Father and I live for deep conversations and authentic connection with both.

I chase this one thing and chase it quite messily. 
To know Him and be known by Him.

To see Him face to face and understand these bible verses in an experiential way.

On this site you’ll find honesty, authenticity always. You’ll find messy me pouring out heart aches, asking hard questions about faith/life/love, sharing mundane middles and wading through the gray spaces of our wild life. 

Rip is our jello cat. Pick him up and every limb goes limp as he melts on you. He is the sweetest cat I’ve ever met and has been known to convert “dog people” to Maine Coon lovers for life.



If he’s not downstairs researching crypto, working out or outside wood working…he might be in bed taking a nap or working on a crossword puzzle.
We’ve been married for 12 years, moved 8 times, survived and thrived through 10 deployments. There’s nobody I’d rather live life with




Just your average Italian American mil-spo (military spouse….the military loves to shorten anything).






Pip is our resident talker. He loves to be pet while he eats, open closed doors and drool while he’s brushed. He’s got an epic RBF and a purr to match.

Military life.

Military wife.


My ideal meal is under the open sky with the sound of laughter from family and friends, a small fire in the middle, a fabulous charcuterie board (goat cheese is a must) and a smooth glass of red wine. There may be some chocolate in there too.


Let’s go on an Adventure!

Take me to all the far off places, the hidden groves, ancient cities, distant islands. I long to see all the tucked away corners of the this wonderful world. Meet new people and experience new cultures and soak up as much of this life as I can.

I may be half coffee...

Nothing beats a perfect handled mug of coffee with just the right amount of creamer….ok well maybe a smooth glass of red wine comes close.

Crazy cat lady?
Or crazy dog lady?

Dog or cat? What an awful question. Why should you have to choose?! (Great Dane & Maine Coon…I’m a crazy dog and cat lady all at once)

Secret addiction...

I’m a nerd at heart and love to live in the dream world of books. (A good fantasy novel, especially ones with strong female  characters, are usually the ones you’ll find me lost in). My favorite book is usually the one I'm currently reading. I love sharing my latest find on Instagram

Obsessed with...

Board games and fabulous quotes. Game nights are the best way to spend time with friends and I'm a sucker for a quality one liner. Don't believe me? Check out my Pinterest Board.
