. I'm just a 20-something trying to find her place in life.
Cliche? I know. But what can you expect, it's that time in my life when probably most people my age are feeling the same dang feeling. And for those of you who have it figured out, tell me how you did it. Pa-lease?
But what would you like to know about me? Let's see...
I'm a 20-something who traveled to Omaha, NE, back in 2005 to play softball at Creighton University. College consisted of four years of ups and downs but a time that I would never trade for anything. I had the privilege of playing with some of the most wonderful and driven people I've come to know, and we undoubtedly shared an experience that not many people get to be a part of.
I'm a 20-something now living in Omaha, NE, working in the corporate world. A desk job was quite the change from flying around the softball seven days a week but I've managed to adjust by dabbling in the running world. I work in the Finance Department and though I'm in a job that never initially crossed my mind, it's allowed me to step out of my comfort zone and truly grow as a person. I also work with a great group of people and made some lifelong friends who make it all worth it.
I'm also a 20-something living with my two dogs: Graham, and Tilly. They are the absolute loves of my life and you can bet I spoil them rotten. As you'll come to learn, my family is the most important thing to me. Without a doubt. I've been blessed with the most genuine, compassionate, loving, and admirable parents and brother a girl could ask for.
Finally, I'm a 20-something that discovered her complete passion for baking in college. I can't really pinpoint an event or the moment that completely changed me [before this, I could barely use a peeler], but whatever it was...thank you Lord. The baking fever hit me hard and it hit me good. I fell in love with baking for several reasons, one being the smiling faces you get whenever you bring in a treat. People just love those baked goodies! But baking has also served as somewhat of a stress reliever. You bakers out there, I'm sure some of you can relate. I started blogging in 2011 because I started to get recipe requests from family and friends, and to be honest, typing up a recipe over and over gets old. Then someone suggested I start a blog to document my baking adventures, and voila. LSM.
In a nutshell, I'd say these few points just about sum me up. But if there's anything any of you would like to know, feel free to leave a comment.
Thank you to everyone who stops by LSM, it's truly rewarding knowing that someone is out there glancing at this blog. And I'll continue to do my best to keep you coming back ☺ .
