Hello and welcome! My name is Mackenzie, and I began blogging when my husband, DJ, and I moved to California from the midwest in 2016. Initially, I began this blog to keep family updated back home on our happenings and to record our memories. But blogging turned out to be much more than I ever anticipated; it is home to a community where I have personally grown, learned from people from all walks of life, been inspired by many and cultivated friendships.
I thank you for stopping by- however you stumbled upon this page. Around here you can expect the occasional recap of our Austin adventures since moving here in the summer of 2019, some restaurant recaps, recipe ideas, travels, and reflective convos about life. And a recent update- this August we will be moving back to Northeast Ohio to be closer to most of our family.
A few more details that feel appropriate for an “About” page… I’m a Family Nurse Practitioner currently working on a specialty certificate in endocrinology, I have an unusual appreciation for puns, I drink too much coffee daily with the indefinite intention to cut back, I probably use too many exclamation points in general, and second to being with family and friends, I am my happiest running. Most importantly, l strive to make Christ the center of my life each day.
Please never hesitate to leave a comment or reach out by e-mail on my contact page. I love to chat!
