About Me

{Hello!} I am Rochelle and this is my place to free my mind as well as share my adventures with you. I'm a simple girl, and I believe it's the small and simple touches that make a huge difference. I enjoy DIY projects of all kinds. From crafts, to food, to home decor, Pinterest has induced my crafty side and I absolutely LOVE it! :) I hope you enjoy my blog and that you'll come back to visit often! Feel free to check out my "About Me" page to get to know me a little better. XOXO.

Keeping Up With Me

My Recent Adventures

About Me

But she didn't know till she hit the road,
deep in her soul.
She's got the fire & the fight of a gypsy.
Ain't nothin' stronger than 
the heart of Dixie.
Hey Y'all! I'm Rochelle, the owner of this blog. When I originally started this blog it was to keep my family informed on my daily life while I was living out of state with my, then, husband who happened to be a Marine. Fast forward 3 years and I am now divorced and living at home with my mom trying regain myself and my life. And before I go on, yes I know, "I'm too young to be divorced" I've heard it many of times. I believe life has a way of presenting it's lessons to each and every one of us in its own unique way, some not so obvious and others right smack dab in our faces, but I've learned to adapt and overcome life's challenges and take everything for what it is: The good with the bad and keep on moving forward.

So on that forward note, I greeted this world on December 7, 1988, which makes me a Sagittarius. I'm still learning and finding my true identity, but I have come to the realization that the characteristics of my zodiac sign reign true for me. I am a fun, loving, caring woman who is always seeking new refreshing adventures and experiences in life. I can never sit still for too long and am always planning activities that I love to share with anyone who wants to join me. I'd like to think I have a good sense of humor although I am blonde and sometimes won't get it, but I'll laugh it off as if I do (sorry). I like to always look at the positive side of things because even through the bad there still can be something good to come from it.

I love being outdoors. Hiking, biking, fishing, swimming, snowboarding, or anything else really that involves being outside. I love to take in the fresh air whenever possible.  I also am a huge runner. In high school I was apart of the Varsity Cross Country team, as well as, ran the 4x8, 800m, 1600m, and 3200m events in our Varsity Indoor and Outdoor Track team. I've completed multiple 5K's and 10K's, as well as 3 half marathons. And I definitely plan to further my running adventures to full marathons and even some triathlons. :) One of my aspirations in life is to complete the Ironman Triathlon Championships held in Kona, HI. I also aspire to hike the entire Appalachian Trail, as well. I'm also a huge football fan. My AFC team is the Baltimore Ravens (since I was born in Baltimore it's kind of required, lol) and my NFC team (as well as MY team) is the Dallas Cowboys.

I do not have any children yet, but hope to have 3 or 4 (maybe) kids later on down the road once I've establish myself in a career. My aspiring career would be a registered nurse, however, nothing is set in stone for me. Although I may not be a "real" mom, I am a momma to my furry-four-legged child, Bowie, a  yellow lab mix. He is my absolute world! I have no idea what I'd do or where I'd be without him in my life. He truly is this little lady's best friend.

Thank you soo much for joining in on my journey! :)
