Hi, I’m Jacqueline.reape-390_zpshdkxw6jn
I am a graduate from the University of Missouri-Columbia, where I received my degree in nutrition and exercise physiology. I started blogging when I moved away from home as a way to prevent homesickness and it kind of just stuck. I have been taking photos since middle school but finally splurged on my DSLR, a pentax k200d in 2010.

A couple years ago, I gave my life to Christ. I believe that He died on the cross for my sins and that I will spend eternal life with Him in heaven (John 3:16). Because of Him, I have a passion for all the things written on this blog, so why not share it?


My husband’s name is Kevin. We’ve known each other since elementary school and started dating our senior year of  high school. We went to college, graduated, got jobs and then we tied the knot on March 7, 2015. He’s my best friend and number one fan; he always encourages me to keep writing and has basically taught me everything i know about blogging and WordPress. He is hilarious, hardworking, and is the most positive person that i have ever met.  If you stick around, you’ll probably see him here and there!

I also enjoy blogging about photography, adventures, planting and gardening woes, goal setting, memory keeping in various forms, my word of the year, my faith and how the Lord is working in my life, and any other thing that crosses my mind.

Hang out, grab your favorite drink, and let’s connect.
