Hi! I’m Lia. I’m currently a 37-year-old living in Iowa and working in Marketing. By living audaciously I’m pushing beyond a comfort zone to have those unbelievable experiences many only dare to dream about!
I’ve lived in Iowa for the majority of my life, with the exception of 6 months when I tried moving to Southern California. I didn’t want to be that girl from Iowa who always regretted never moving away, so I left, and I came right back! I love it here!
Oh, the places you’ll go!
However, I love to travel. When I was younger my mother would make sure that my brothers and I got to experience other cultures. She had grown up in Europe, and it was really important to her that we see some of those areas. I stopped traveling for a while, besides the yearly trip to North Carolina or random other state-side trips, as I got older. I just let life get in the way and made other things a priority. Well, enough of that! I want to see the world! A trip to Isla Mujeres and jumping into the ocean with whale sharks truly rejuvenated my love for travel!
One of the greatest joys in my life is my furbaby, Wrigley. I rescued her when she was 2 years old, and she had obviously been through something before I got her. Now she is 9 years old and getting gray right alongside me! (She’s also sitting on the bench right next to me as I type this.) When I do get to travel, the only bad part is that I have to leave her at home.
The various posts on this blog are about things I’ve learned, experienced, or want to experience! Places I’ve seen, things I’ve done. Hopefully, you’ll enjoy learning a little more about the wonderful world around us and get a spark within yourself and begin living audaciously!
