Hey y’all!

I’m Natalie…as straight-laced as they come..or am I?


I’m married to my other half. My Yin to my Yang. 30 years, 4 kids, 3 grand-kids, multiple careers and countless moves. I am a blogger who loves to share & teach my passions with others whether it be food, travel, DIY, fashion, or health & fitness. Oh and did I mention I’m a Pastry Chef…a regular Martha Stewart??

But there’s more to this over 50 year old military spouse…I’ve dedicated my entire life to my family. They’ve been my whole world, my purpose for waking up each day. But they’re doing what grown kids do…creating their own life. Earlier than expected retirement brings new and uncharted territory. So here I am an unorganized control freak starting fresh, digging deep, growing in grace, and learning new ways to live life the best way I know how…GOING ON ADVENTURES!!

Welcome to my BLOG…where food, family, fitness, and adventure all come together!  Won’t you join me?


My FAMILY…they’re mine and I wouldn’t trade them for the world!  I post photos of family gatherings, my 3 silly grand-kids, oh and my sweet little princess pup Lillian. I talk about all things military family life and chronicle our journey into empty nesting.


The KITCHEN is a place to bond and build memories. I post step-by-step directions along with photos of all of the dishes & desserts that I make for my family as well as some new food adventures…some with a healthier spin others just pure indulgence! Just a nice balance of farm to table ingredients AND plenty of butter!

I’m all about a LIFESTYLE of balance. And that includes, health, fitness, beauty and life in general. I share my personal fitness diary and passion for helping others live a healthy & fulfilling lifestyle.


I love blogging. I love exploring, experiencing new and exciting places, traveling, and sharing as I continue along the adventure called life!

Thank you for visiting and allowing me to share!
