I was born and raised in Springfield, Ohio. It’s 45 minutes west of Columbus, Ohio. My family still lives there so I am there often!
I am 5’8.
My marital status is single. I am currently in a relationship.
I am an educator and blog on the side. I have been in education over 20 years; as a high school and middle school math teacher, middle school and high school administrator, and district office administrator.
I started my blog a few years ago to share my love of traveling and to share the information on how to travel affordably and to see many countries on a limited budget. It ignited a passion and discovered that I really enjoyed taking pictures and writing. I also found that when I moved, a lot of people loved me sharing the renovations and home decor so it has continued to evolve into home, fashion, travel, and lifestyle.
I use lightroom and many presets; sometimes I use facetune, pic story, snapseed, or photoshop fix
A lot of people! Sometimes my mom, sometimes my boyfriend, sometimes a random stranger and Natasha and Saj have as well. Look for photography blog post on their contact information
I have always been with a passport - my purse contains it ...just in case. There have been times that I have hopped a place to Europe with less than 24 hour notice just because. The Trendy was because I was not sure if I wanted my actual name out there….now, I might have chosen a different blog name; it has kinda stayed
Make sure you are consistent, create quality content, and continue even when it gets hard. There is a course I took that I highly recommend to get started in blogging https://coming-up-roses.teachable.com/?affcode=30394_htmuyhv0
