I'm a Big 10 girl living in Arizona, while representing my Michigan roots! I'm a nurse and barre3 instructor. I was diagnosed as a type 1 diabetic in the beginning of 2014 and have been navigating my new sugar coated life. I love to read, cook, and be active. I'm married to my college sweetheart, Cody and we have a 1 year old french bulldog named Fitzgerald! The good things: swimming year-round, BBQs, and exploring the desert! This is the blog version of my life, having been mitten raised.
