The Simple Things Blog is dedicated to finding gratitude in every day life. More often than not, I make life more complicated than it needs to be. By weaving my gratitude journal with visual content, I hope to create a place that inspires us all to shift our daily perspectives, and return to the simple things whenever possible.




Here is a quick rundown of bloggy bio info so you can decide if my demographic fits your tastes (let's be real, I go straight to the about me page on every new blog and take it from there...)

I am 31. I currently live in Casper, Wyoming after a brief minimalist stint in Mexico. My roots are in Colorado, and my soul will always resonate with the mountain region. My boyfriend and I have 2 pups that we rescued from Puerto Rico while on vacation, and they are the cutest siblings ever, if I do say so myself. 

I am a certified yogi (which just means I completed my 200 hour training...I don't really teach too much...) and had a few years of passionate running in my mid to late twenties. I currently am battling with getting that passion refueled. As a profession, I work in sales for an HR tech company based out of Boston, but I am lucky enough to work remotely from my little corner office in our 900 square foot home we lovingly refer to as "the little yellow house in Casper."

In my free time you can find me cooking, reading, gardening (a newer interest), blogging, camping, or hiking with the pups. I am a fan of green juices, whiskey, and wine...and I suppose I will admit...Michelob Ultras. So sue me. 

Lastly, this is my second blog I have taken public, and it is reflective of a new season in my life;  a season where I take notice of where I am right now as opposed to where I want to be going. Inspiration struck - and it told me to focus on the simple things every day, and allow that path to lead me to places I couldn't dream of on my own. 

Thanks for reading, and I hope you take  away a tiny bit of gratitude for your own simple blessings as you carry out your day.
