Please tell us a bit about your blog?
We are a couple of head-over-heels in love, not-so-newlyweds on the quest for the healthiest lifestyle possible. We are adventurous homebodies loving to try new materials to make the best us. We were married over a year ago and since then have been living every day by the motto of “just do it.” Our adventure is a joyful, simple one. He is a lover of all things superhero, strategic taste tester of all baked goods, and reacher of all things up high. I am a vintage aficionado, crafter by nature, and the light of his life.
Q1. How and why did you get into blogging?
When my husband and I were first married and moved to the south, I had not gotten a job yet. We lived in a very small cabin by the lake and I needed something to keep my hands busy. I started following different DIY blogs and began my own Esty business. It was a great way to have my own corner of the world and share it with others.
Q2. Where do you get your writing inspiration from?
I get inspiration from my husband and our daily happenings. As cheesy as it sounds, I really do love ever aspect of our life and I am so proud and happy its mine!

Slow is fast! Build up your own style, get to know people – the more you do “behind the scenes” the more success you will have!

Since I have not been in the blogging culture very long, I can honestly say nothing!

I do believe they are very important, but if you don’t understand, ask! As long as one person is reading, thats all you need.
