Hi, my name is Ronnie. I’m a wife, mom of 5, “Gigi” to 5 and mommy to one spoiled fur-baby! My life has taken many twists and turns through the years – I have been an unwed mom, a stay at home mom, a widowed mom, a remarried mom, a working mom, a home school mom, a chronically ill mom. We’ve had children with seizures, heart problems, cutting issues, anorexia, child predator problems. I’ve dealt with chronic illness/pain for 15 years. I’ve struggled with depression most of my life, and battled my weight all my adult life. Two years ago I underwent bariatric weight loss surgery. Life has never been dull, but God has always been good!
Through all that life has thrown my way, God has allowed me to find joy and goodness and beauty all around me. I hope that I am able to share that with you and help you to find some as well.
I love to bake. (Though I’ve been known to drop and burn things!) I love to decorate my home, though it’s more hand-me-downs and thrift shops than Pier 1 Imports. I love fashion and style, and I’m thoroughly addicted to thrift shopping, as well as White House Black Market! I’m a voracious reader and am usually juggling about five books at a time. There are so many wonderful things in the world to enjoy and share.
Recently, God has allowed me to pursue one of my lifelong dreams and I am back in school pursuing my certification as a fashion stylist! I’m excited to be taking you along on this journey with me! Not only will I be sharing some of my lessons with you, but I also have a passion for showing others that finding a sense of style DOES NOT have to come with a hefty price tag! So, we’ll be thrifting and searching our own closets and finding ways to find a style that anyone can achieve!
If you’re looking for an honest life perspective from someone who has found beauty in the normal and the ashes, as well as in the view from the mountain top, then welcome to my blog!
