Hi there! I’m Aramelle – a midwestern girl at heart, hailing from small-town Minnesota. In 2004, I followed my heart to the Wild, Wild West for a boy who I met on the internet. A decade later, I’ve finally stopped claiming to be “new to the area,” and have come to truly love the city that I now call home. I married that boy from the Internet, and together we’ve settled into a little house in northern Nevadan suburbia, raising a spunky little boy -our miracle baby after a two year infertility fight- and sharing our place with two annoying but lovable cats.
I work for a local non-profit and often find myself in awe of how incredibly blessed I am to do what I do for a living. I’m one of those ridiculously lucky fools who gets paid to do something that I have such an immense passion for that I can feel it coursing through my veins every.single.day. I love cooking-almost as much as I love a good excuse not to cook, watch too much reality TV, and spend far too much time online.
This blog is my online notebook -a place for sharing the stories of the life that’s unfolding around me. It’s the journey of a woman who is working to find peace with a painful past. It’s the trials and tribulations of a wife and momma who is trying to master this thing I’ve heard called “balance.” It’s the hobbies I love. The simple things in life that make me smile and laugh.
