I’m so happy that you are here at my blog and want to know a little bit more about me.
And Here We Live, adventures in intentionally finding joy, I am working to bring joy into my life and share my experiences and advice with others.
I have a good life. I want to make it better. I believe intentionality will get me what I’m looking for even if I don’t know exactly what that is yet.
I am on an adventure to find something- the name of it changes on a regular basis. Sometimes I call it joy, other times I call it purpose, intentionality, satisfaction, even contentment, or peace could also apply. Join me in my experiments as I adventure.
I believe in the power of perspective and self-talk. Accepting that things are not perfect and that you control yourself and your reactions to the world around you can be incredibly freeing.
I have a love of personal finance. I believe that money at its best is an expression of personal values. Therefore, money is a tool to help you reach your goals. I like to talk about it. I like to do what I can to be frugal. I like to plan for financial freedom. However, I’m not going to try and retire by 35 so you won’t hear much about early retirement extreme here, but you will hear about saving early and often for retirement.
Minimalism & Simple Living
Certain elements of minimalism appeal to me and I will be playing with them in the future. Current projects I have planned include a lot of organizing and decluttering. There will not be any extreme minimalism such as purging everything and moving into a studio apartment.
Some elements of simple living also appeal to me; however, I have no aspirations to move off the grid. I can barely keep a houseplant alive so I’m not going to be trying for a garden any time soon. Although I do enjoy weeding for some reason.

So, if any of this resonates with you or sounds interesting please check out some of my posts.
Two of my current experiments include social media. I am using Instagram to find something joyful each day and post a picture. I am also using Twitter to answer the question of what brought me joy today, you can also see the Instagram photos there as well.
I’m also on Pinterest!
