There isn’t much to know about me. I am a twenty-something year old women, wife, and mother. I believe in honesty, loyalty, compassion, and most importantly, doing just enough to make it by. I want to share my journey of being the worlds okayest mom and struggling with the reality of all the ups and downs that come with striving for more.

Life is hard. Why complicate it with trying to be a perfect wife and mother?  Finding balance is key, but that’s pretty much impossible.

Peonies are said to represent a good life, a happy marriage and are regarded as an omen of good fortune. Peony Pursuits is the collection of heartfelt ramblings about the challenges, failures, and even the small victories that make it all worthwhile.

Happiness is a journey, not a destination.
