Hi! I’m Dawn, an Air Force wife and mom of three. I have a lot of interests (cooking, writing, sewing, crafting, fitness…and the list goes on) so you’ll find a bit of everything on my blog!

A few random facts about me:

  • I’m not a morning or night person, but I can rock mid-day like nobody’s business.
  • I am neurotically punctual. I am always, always, always on time (read: early).
  • I love school. I have a BA in English, an MBA in HR Management. I went back to school in 2013 for an Advanced Certificate in Graphic Design and Branding. I have a passion for typography and do hand-lettered prints for my Etsy shop.
  • I started running a few years ago and I’ve done quite a few 5Ks, an 8K and completed my first half marathon on Mother’s Day of 2013. I’ve also done the complete Insanity program and PiYo programs.
  • I’m really friendly so people are always surprised to find out I’m a major introvert and completely content to hang out by myself. My homebody tendencies are borderline hermit.
  • I love moving every few years like we do. There are downsides for sure but overall, I love the opportunity to experience so many different places. Charleston, SC is still my favorite place we’ve lived and we want to retire there.
  • I hate when people lack common courtesy or aren’t nice. It’s not that hard to be kind! (Read my post on this subject called “Be Kind or Be Quiet” here).
  • I have 6 tattoos. (Skipping class in college to get a tattoo? Or two? Guilty.)
  • I swore I’d NEVER drive a minivan. But I do. And I love it.
  • I had my first magazine feature in 2014 and my craft room Jumbo Pegboard recently appeared on Good Housekeeping!
  • My birthday is on Halloween.
  • My favorite bible verse is Proverbs 16:24 | Kind words are like honey—sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.
  • After popping out 3 babies in 3.5 years, I came home from the hospital unhappily weighing 215 lbs. I’ve lost 60+ pounds in the past 2.5 years and recently reached my goal weight thanks in large part to Paleo-style eating…so I try to eat healthy and workout most days but I almost never let a day go by without dark chocolate and over-caffinating. I’m a work in progress. ;)
You can check out some more random facts about me in the post Beautiful People Do Not Just Happen {Embracing Life’s Joys and Challenges}. I’m so glad you stopped by. I hope you’ll stick around and find something that inspires you!
XOXO,

New-Signature
