Welcome! My name is Mackenzie, and I began blogging when my husband, DJ, and I moved to California from the midwest in 2016. Initially, I began this blog to keep family updated back home on our happenings and to record our memories. But blogging turned out to be much more than I ever anticipated; it is home to a community where I have personally grown, learned from people from all walks of life, been inspired by many and cultivated friendships.
I thank you for stopping by- however you stumbled upon this page. Around here you can find recaps of our time in Northern California from 2016-2019, Austin, TX 2019-2021 and most currently, our Northeast Ohio adventures since moving here in the summer of 2021. Posts tend to include a hodge-podge of recent life happenings with our puppy, Moose, restaurant reviews, recipe ideas and travels near and far. We also have a baby girl due in May, and I am cherishing every moment of this incredible journey!
A few more details that feel appropriate for an “About” page… I’m a nurse practitioner with a specialty in endocrinology, I have an unusual appreciation for puns, I probably use too many exclamation points in general, and second to being with family and friends, I am my happiest running. Most importantly, l strive to make Christ the center of my life each day.
Please never hesitate to leave a comment or reach out by e-mail on my contact page. I love to chat!
