There’s rarely a dull moment in my life. From career goals to fitness challenges, I’m always anticipating the next big adventure. Right now, I’m in the midst of the biggest adventure yet: parenting! My husband, Peter, and I welcomed our first child, Corban, into the world Dec. 8, 2011. On Sept. 1, 2013, we welcomed our daughter, Mara. These two sweet kids certainly keep us on our toes, but also bring us much joy every day.
The Next Big Adventure is home to my thoughts, tips, updates and adventures as I learn the ropes of parenting and maintaining our home.
When I’m not busy being entertained by my four-year-old and chasing my
baby toddler girl, I enjoy reading, running, being outside (in the winter too!), relaxing with Peter, attempting to decorate our house, cuddling with our two cats (Biggles and Basil) and trying new recipes (many of which are archived at my former food blog for JSOnline, Kitchen Adventures (formerly Post-College Kitchen)). We love entertaining, whether it’s a party or just another couple for dinner. I attempt to be crafty sometimes and I’m on a quest to simplify my wardrobe. I spend three days a week working as a multimedia journalist and lifestyle editor for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (check out Fresh). Above all, I seek to honor God, and am thankful for His sovereign grace.
This blog will change with every new step of my life; it started out about pregnancy, then about being a new parent and pregnant again. Next year, or even next month, it will be about a whole new set of challenges and goals.
