A Blog Is Born!

Change can be fun. Change can be scary. Change is inevitable.

I started my journey as a blogger when I launched a blog about internships as a college career counselor. I loved it so much that I decided to create a blog of my own. First Class Great Outdoors was born.

Then…

I wrote in that space for over 4 years. But something happened over the last couple years. I fell out of love with my blog.

I struggled with topics to write about. I struggled to repair my site after it was hit by a bug. It felt like there was an overwhelming amount of work to do on that blog. But even more overwhelming was the feeling that the blog was no longer “me.”

Sometimes, you just know when it’s time to move on. I knew it was time for a change.

Here is the fruit of that decision, my new creative endeavor: A Two Dog Life.

A Two Dog Life is all about my life … my whole life. I love Wisconsin, and I want to show how great it is to live here. My husband Jason and I love to travel, especially when it involves getting outdoors. We also love having fabulous places to call home, from our constant project-in-progress Victorian-era home to our blank slate: 2 acres in the country outside of our small town.

Jason and I are trying to live healthy, active lives. We need to be in good shape for all the activities we love and for our two dogs, Bailey and Naya. We want to be a happy, healthy little family.

Now… (Maybe some things haven’t changed)

More than anything, A Two Dog Life is about the life we are choosing for ourselves. We know what we want and we’re going after it. Sometimes, this means we’re making very different choices from others around us. And that’s ok.

Check out my About Me page for more on A Two Dog Life. I’m excited to share new stories — and more stories — with you. Thank you for coming on this journey with me!
