As I was growing up, my family moved around the country a few times. We settled here when I was ten and I’ve loved living here ever since! When I was young, my mom would take the family out for any kind of activities she thought we could enjoy, so some of what I write about comes from ideas I got from her.
I moved to Utah Valley to go to UVSC (now UVU). While living in Orem, I met and married my husband, who’s from Spanish Fork. We moved to Springville and now hope to never leave it! We’ve been married for almost 5 1/2 years now and I only feel like our lives together get better everyday. I’m not a mom (yet, but hopefully soon), unless you want to count my part-time mothering as a teacher of 22 first-graders.
I’m totally ADD which causes me to jump around from activity to activity quite often. And because of that, I just love anything that is new and exciting to do! Whether it’s making new things at home or out looking for adventures, I love it. My most recent hobbies that I’m fixated on are photography, crafting, and blogging!
Since I love blogging, I have two of my own personal blogs, a regular blog where I post everything and anything that catches my interest called Playing It Cooley and my photo blog which is Pink Lemonade!
I’m so excited to get started and I hope you enjoy what I find to blog about! I will be writing in the Out & About section of Utah Mama, and hope to find a lot of great activities for you. Since I live in Utah Valley and rarely leave it, most of what I will put up will be for around this area. But I do sometimes get out and will definitely write about those activities when they are available! I also welcome any ideas that you may have on places to go and things to see!
