Hello world!

Hello World!
Well, here I am. I’ve admired slash lusted over so many blogs for years, and now the time has come for me to start my own. Why now? Why not now, right? Plus, my mom and my husband both insisted I start a blog. So, here I am.
I really enjoy the space a blog creates for an individual, a creative outlet, a place to share things you love, things that inspire you, a place to share your adventures and just a place to be yourself.
I am looking forward to sharing our travel adventures, life + style, and some creative projects!
