#AventuraLife means to me living life to the fullest. Living the life we have been given, and enjoying it along the way.


Hometown: Caledonia, MI

About Me: I am a wife of almost 15 years, WHAT!! Time flies. We have four daughters and strive to raise them right in an unpredictable world. I am a runner and enjoy doing that. It’s my alone time, my husband doesn’t understand, but that’s ok. And I would be remiss to say I enjoy running and working out so that I can enjoy the marvelous food we have too. Ha!

Favorite Spring ’16 Aventura pieces: I am a huge fan of the Redford Jacket. Living in Michigan, you just don’t know what the weather will be any given day. Sure, the meteorologists give it their best, but we need layers, and the Redford Jacket (which comes in SO many colors) is perfect for the cool mornings and nights.

Favorite Blog: I honestly don’t have/take a TON of time to read blogs, books, etc., but when I do sit down, I am always stopping by Then, I happen upon a few here and there when perusing Pinterest….

Favorite Instagrammer or Pinner: Oohhh, my love for IG grows daily. I really like to watch a lot of the fashion bloggers, but most of them seem so “put together”. I LOVE the real life ones.

Singing in the car or singing in the shower: Ummm…totally both!

Person that inspires you: Moms working it. Moms handling all.the.things. every day of their life with a SMILE on their face feeling blessed the whole way. So, not one person in particular am I thinking of right now, just all the moms killing it out there. Go Mommas!! :0

What are you listening to right now? My boston terrier snoring. Oh the life…

Favorite movie of all time: Any and ALL romantic comedy movies. Well…actually, only the ones with a happy ending. This past weekend I just watched The Proposal. Never gets old!

Best piece of advice you ever received? Look at every situation, good or bad, and find the joy in it. Enjoy the journey for we only get one!

What’s the most amazing experience you’ve had in your life (besides having babies and getting married): I had the opportunity one year to have a handful of Disney trips, media based, and got to experience many behind the scenes and once in a lifetime opportunities. On two of the events, I was able to bring guests, I brought my mother on one and my daughter on another. Time away with just them. It was priceless!

Funny tidbit not everyone knows about you…but will now! My toes are LONG, my feet are BIG. They really stand out in some shoes next to my chicken leg calves. Ha!

What does #aventuralife mean to you? How do you live it? #AventuraLife means to me living life to the fullest. Living the life we have been given, and enjoying it along the way. We love to be outside playing sports, wandering in the fields, riding quads with my parents and our family…doing anything we can to have fun and make some memories.
