Hello, and thanks for visiting my blog!
I’m Liv, and I’m a born and raised Clevelander—and proud of it! A communications professional by day, I love running, cooking, drinking coffee (and wine), fashion, trying new foods and being with those I love. I live with my wonderful husband Nick, our black cat Timmy and our sweet puppy Opie in a suburb outside the city near family and friends. I believe lipstick and a workout can make any day better, and my day doesn’t start before a cup of strong coffee is warming my hands.
A perfectionist at my core, I want it all. I want to be a great wife, sister, daughter, friend, chef, runner and homemaker. I want to be healthy, host parties, travel, excel at my career and learn new things. In short, I learned at a young age that life is precious and goes way too quickly; we must live our best life here, now, today. But sometimes, that’s easier said than done!
In a world where Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are primary ways we learn about each other, it can appear like everyone’s life is picture-perfect. Well, I’m going to be honest and say my life is far from it. God has blessed me in so many ways, and I thank Him every day. But if you look closely, our house has dirty paw prints, I have a horrible habit of procrastinating and I’m still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. You too? Perfect. Can we be friends?
Join me in my journey to strike a balance—if just for a moment—in this crazy, beautiful world.
