Frequently Asked Questions
Where are you from?
Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
When I talk about home, I mean a small city near Calgary called Lethbridge. It's not home because it's where I want to live, it's home because that's where a good majority of the people I love live (though not all of them). Lethbridge just happens to be a place where, if we go back to visit, is the easiest place for everyone to gather.
Wisconsin is also home, mostly because I love how beautiful it is here and it's where we are building the life we've been working towards.
You don't work?
I don't work, not in the traditional sense. By lucky happenstance my husband, Kevin, got a job in the United States and as mentioned above we are from Canada. Originally, Kevin had a visa that allowed him to work a very specific job and I had a dependent visa, that did not allow me to work. As of October 2018, our visa status changed to Permanent Resident. This means that I am now allowed to earn an income. I am not yet sure what that will look like but I’m sure you’ll see that updated on the blog when I have it figured out.

Does your blog make money?
Occasionally. However there will continue to be no ads on this space or my social media. I will occasionally use affiliate links. If you decide to purchase something I've suggested I may get a small commission, at no additional cost to you. For sponsored content where compensation is received, I will always do my best to give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences.

What do you do?
Why the "Clutter Box"
I honestly don't remember the original intent. I think it had to do with wanting to be anonymous and having the free will to write whatever I needed without judgement from others. I created this space originally to hid and write out all the horrible thoughts that went through my head.
Today it is how I see my mind, a clutter of things that I am trying to work through. I hope that the thoughts are a lot kinder towards myself and others. I want this space to be a safe place to go and feel whatever emotions need feeling.
