About me

Hi!  I am Laura.

My blog mission is to write about simplifying life by focusing on the things that matter.  I live in the Dallas-Ft Worth area but we live on the outskirts of the city so we are living a country life in the big city.   I blog mostly about family, food,  and DIY with a little entertainment and sometimes sports mixed in.

I married in 2014 and inherited a kid who is 12 going on 32.   I have about 30 chickens, a couple of dogs and some ducks.   We live in an 1970 Ranch style house that is forever in need of some update or another.   My decorating heroine is Joanna Gaines from Fixer Upper mixed with color.  I love Joanna's simple style but I also love color so you won't find a white and cream room in my house.

Thanks for stopping by and reading.
I hope you enjoy the ride!

He's the love of my life even if he doesn't know it.
