I’m Allison. I am a mama to two adorable but active littles, Ladybug and Buddy. Although at times they drive me crazy, I love being able to stay home with them. I am the wife of an attorney who is also an officer in the National Guard.
I grew up in the beautiful region of the Pacific Northwest. Although I haven’t lived there for many years, it still holds a piece of my heart. After moving around a few times, I’ve finally found my place in the cute Midwestern town that I now call home.
Traveling is important to my husband and me. Family trips are a priority so we try and schedule a fun week-long vacation at least once a year and maybe some mini weekend outings and day trips more often. But, although I love seeing new places, I’m not a fan of getting there. I’ve always been an anxious flyer and I’m not a fan of being cooped up in the car for hours. But I put up with it to be able to see new things.
Apart from traveling, I love to read and write. Get me a cup of hot chocolate (or a bowl of ice cream or a popsicle if the weather is hot) and I can sit for hours reading a good book. Sadly, with two little kids, I don’t have much time to read these days but I have a book pile that is taking over my bookshelf just waiting for me. But I always try to make time to write, whether it be a story, blog post, or a letter to one of my kids.
That’s me in a nutshell. I hope you’ll stick around and read more.
