Sometimes the nitty gritty parts of life that take up a majority of our time are really hard. Things like keeping a home which means laundry, cleaning, decorating, and shopping. Things like cooking, which can be so hard when you're cooking for more than just yourself, trying to budget groceries, and experimenting with recipes. Things like finances, learning to understand, manage, save, and spend money the right ways. I am figuring out these real life things, slowly but surely. And I'm surprisingly loving (nearly) every moment of it! I can't wait to share what I learn!
The idea of home is something I've craved my entire life. I have moved homes a total of 27 times in my 28 years of life (not even including each time I moved to a new country on the World Race living out of my backpack for a year). Currently, I'm in a home that is only temporary, but I still want to make it a space that is my own. I've been learning so much about "balancing a home," and being a homemaker. I am loving every moment.
I can't believe how much I love cooking! I didn't start cooking until I was living in South Africa when I was 27 years old. I had access to super cheap, amazing, fresh food and took advantage of the opportunity to finally learn. I devoured food blogs and found my favorite bloggers and recipe creators to follow. Since then, I get to cook for my boyfriend (who eats a lottttt) and it's been the most fun!
Money isn't my favorite thing, but it kinda makes the world go round, in a way. Understanding finances is so necessary and vital to living real life in a healthy, beautiful, and balanced way. I'm no expert. In fact, I'd consider myself a newbie at creating a budget, sticking to it, and saving funds. I'll share my journey as I walk it. And I gladly accept any and all real life finance tips you have to offer!:)
