December 4, 2012 in I Adore What I Love

My name is Dana and I was inspired.  I was inspired to start a blog, that is.  Something came over me and I just had to get the ball rolling. Today. Why, you ask?  I really don’t have an amazing answer for that, other than the fact that I wanted to. Maybe I was bored? (Although, with my life, I’m not sure that’s possible) Maybe I need to add a little zest to my everyday schedule? (Totally valid – who doesn’t want to add zest to their day?!) Maybe I am just tired of pinteresting, instagraming, and facebooking so often? (Possible) Or maybe it’s because FabFitFun’s daily email today was all about the best blogs in town? (Ding, Ding, Ding!!) Whatever my reasoning, I am doing it….

Thank you for joining me on DAY 1 of my journey.

    My Name is Dana Ivy.

    Hey hey! I’m a MOM of two, here to share and I’m so happy you found me!! As a Chicago lifer {currently settled in the North Shore ‘burbs}, self-admitted shopping addict, and foodie, at the core I’m really just a mom {and a wife, gotta give a shout-out to my hubby!} just trying to balance it all! My two crazy toddler boys, Brody {who’s 5} and Levi {who’s 3} are my whole entire world and while being their mom is the BEST thing ever, it ain’t always easy! The chaos is real and because I adore mom life SO MUCH, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Would you?? I created this space for all the moms out there who are just trying to get by... I want to help make your lives a little easier, one blog post at a time! Join me on my quest to share allll the mom tips, simple style ideas, REALLY easy recipes {if I can do it, you can do it!!}, and our travels. Read More.
