I’m an outgoing, creative mind who is married to a CPA (Certified Public Accountant). You know how they say opposites attract… well, whoever “they” is would be correct.
A little bit about me: I’m a late twenties/early thirties fashion forward foodie and dark beer drinker born and raised in the Chicagoland area. My two dogs do a great job of filling the void of children (for the time being) and I’m actively involved with helping the homeless (both people and pets) in the area. Wanderlust runs in my veins and I’m always looking for my next destination, especially during tax season. Who doesn’t yearn for a post-April 15 getaway?! Hiking is one of my favorite actives, and I try to incorporate it into most of my travels. I inherited my mother’s love of photography which naturally means Instagram is my favorite form of social media. I’m a beauty product junkie who is constantly trying the latest and greatest (or so they claim) trends. I was blessed with porcelain skin that is as sensitive and fragile as real porcelain, so the product struggle is real over here. I dabble in a lot of areas, but my 9 to 5 is in the wine and spirits industry. I have always been interested in real estate and recently started moonlighting as a Realtor, which has been quite eye opening and very rewarding. I have a family-first mentality and an undying love of football, New York style pizza, and puzzles. I am always searching for new recipes, DIY projects, and life hacks in general.
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. Your spouse may or may not be in public accounting; heck they might be in a role with an even busier schedule. 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.
Whatever brings you here, welcome.
