Allow me to introduce myself. . .

I often feel that I was born into the wrong decade.  There is something about the elegance and charm from the past that I absolutely love.  This is my journey of trying to find ways to bring that into my life today.  I love working around the home and am in the process of transforming our house into the home I want it to be.  I will never hesitate to get dirty or break out the tools, but I also love the girly side of fashion and beauty.  Me and shopping get along a little too well.

Currently I have a full time career in ballroom dancing.  I have danced since I was a little girl, and essentially never stopped.  It is pretty cool to say I have a career in something I love doing.  The experiences and people I have encountered along the way in my dance journey have truly been amazing.

My husband, Martin, and I have been married for just over a year.  He works in the construction industry, which keeps us on pretty opposite schedules.  We try to make the most of our limited time together and have declared Saturday nights our "Date Night", which could mean anything from going out to dinner and a movie to spending the evening together on the couch with Netflix.  He is always willing to lend a helping hand in any project that I have created in my head. Though most of the time he doesn't know what the end vision is, he trusts me and jumps on board.

We have 2 fur kids, Charlie and Max.  I have had Charlie since I graduated from college and Max was a stray that I adopted a few years later.  They look more similar in photos then they do in person.  They have very different personalities and I am sure they will make an appearance on here from time to time.

And so the journey begins, thanks for joining me!
