I am a recent college graduate, wife, cat and dog mom, marketing & communications manager and budding freelance writer and novelist. I live on the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in northwest Georgia. I love the beauty of my hometown, but dream of what lies beyond Dalton. I am a mercurial, romantic optimist, a theatre junkie, and an extroverted introvert.
I have been striving every day to carve a new path for myself. With all of my recent life changes, why not set new goals for myself while also attempting to elevate and encourage others?
Thus, my Crunchy Crusade was born!
Why “crunchy,” you may ask? Well, besides being a delightful texture for food, (potato chips, fresh apples, and celery, oh my!) “crunchy” is a term used to describe people who strive to live a more environmentally-friendly and mindful life. Which is what I’m attempting to do each and every day. Some days are harder than others. Some days I forget that life should be full of selfless acts, fun, and learning experiences. I think that this brand new blog will serve not only as a way to share my knowledge and life lessons with others, but to also remind myself what I’ve learned along the way.
Each day, I strive to become the best version of myself, and to leave the world a better place than when I found it. We’re all in this together. Will you join me on my quest to break free from the “same ol’ me” to a “more mindful, ever-growing, ever-changing me”? I sure hope so!
Buckle your seat belts and stay tuned!
