Hello Iowa!! |Nevertheless I Live

I am in Iowa!! Land of corn and Slipknot!! Now I am a West Virginia girl. I love my state and its glorious mountains. I have only crossed it's borders for yearly summer beach trips and a handful of other occasions. I NEVER plan to reside anywhere outside of Almost Heaven West by God Virginia...except for my dreams of someday owning a winter beach home somewhere sunny.

So you may ask why in the world I am in Iowa. My answer: Victoria's Secret. Now before you go assuming, yes we mountain lovin' hillbillies have plenty of Victoria's Secrets. So let me clarity. My husband is a contractor. He and his company build retail stores all over the country. 

He has traveled as long as I have known him. When we were dating, his being gone often during the warm months was not a huge deal. Now that we're married it's a bit more difficult. We were blessed the first couple months because construction is slow during the winter months. I think I got REEEEALLY spoiled because as soon as it got warm and he headed out I was not happy. I just missed him so much.

It has taken multiple jobs and several weeks apart to realize another potential blessing in my recent career changes. I quit my job in rescue missions a few months ago after dedicating five long years to it. I decided. with the support of my husband. to pursue a long time dream. I have wanted to create things for as long as I can remember. I want to design and create jewelry and photo albums and who knows what else. I want to create content on a blog and darn it I want a youtube channel! So that's what I am doing. I started this blog and I opened a new etsy shop that I know will someday outgrow etsy and maybe be a physical store. I created a youtube channel and I am creating a brand. Oh, and the best part?! It's portable!

That's right! We packed up my craft room and office and loaded up our puppy and drove twelve hours to Iowa where we have been for two weeks now and will be for a couple more. And after this, who knows? Maybe Wisconsin? 

All I know is I am loving this life I now live! Most of all I am loving being with my handsome hubs more!! More about our Iowa adventures coming soon! 

For now check out my latest video! Lots of changes coming to the channel. Make sure you subscribe so I can bring you along for the ride. 

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20 KJV
