Hello there!

I’m The CPA’s Wife, an outgoing, creative mind who is married to a Certified Public Accountant. You know how they say opposites attract… well, whoever “they” is would be correct. 

Everyone’s experiences are different and being the spouse of someone very career-oriented, I often find myself seeking out others who are in the same boat.  It’s a unique world to live in, where for approximately three and a half months each year my husband goes down the rabbit hole that is known as tax season.  If you’re a CPA wife (or hubby), you’re all too familiar with that hole. If not, no biggie.  Heck, your spouse might be in a career with an even busier schedule!  I’m looking at you, residency husbands/wives.  Either way, you’ve found your way to this blog which is my attempt to reach out to those who, like me, need a break from the grind.  I’m all about self-growth, self-love, self-awareness, and a little bit of selfishness.  My views are just that, my own.  I hope they’re relatable, open-minded, charismatic, helpful, and witty.  I don’t believe in a one size fits all, but I do believe that we as humans have a lot more in common than meets the eye.  All that hubbub aside…

Whatever brings you here, welcome.

I have a love/hate relationship with my Fire Stick – I love the endless hours of entertainment it provides but I hate how sitting down to watch one episode turns into an entire day of binge watching. No self control over here.

Our patio furniture is a staple of summer entertaining, but come winter we don’t have indoor space to store it. This awesome cover protects the furniture from winter’s elements and helps ensure it’s in great condition for the next summer!

Adventure Fund Change Bank

I finally hit my “change” breaking point! I’m queen of having tons of loose coins at the bottom of my purse, but thanks to this super cute change holder I’m no longer carrying around pounds of change. The fun part is seeing how random change can add up to a pretty penny and help us fund our next big adventure!

The mug speaks for itself. My dogs sure are spoiled, and I’ve got no shame about it.

As much as it pains me to admit, I can’t remember the last time I was actually on time. So this clock is more than fitting in my world, and it helps give me a good laugh when I’m running out the door 10 minutes late.
