Please tell us a little about yourself.
I am the mother of two amazing, energetic boys, who traded our minivan for a black Jeep Wrangler Unlimited three years ago. I was a stay at home mom for 16 years, now re-entering the work force on a new career path. Just turning 50, I am in a constant battle with the changes that come with getting older. However, entering into the world of Jeeps and blogging opened up an exciting new life’s journey.
Why did you decide to start a blog?
Peer pressure, LOL! My good friend, neighbor and fellow blogger suggested it. She said blogging about my new Jeep would be fun and exciting. She was right.
What do you enjoy about blogging?
Blogging has allowed me to revisit my first career in writing, videography and editing. I never realized my passion for the creative expression until I started blogging and creating my YouTube videos. It was then I realized how much I missed being a videographer. I love creating and sharing all the wonderful things I discover about myself and my Jeep. My hope is to inspire others to live their lives to the fullest…to live with no regrets.
Where do you find most of your inspiration?
My inspiration comes from other Jeepers, social media and listeners of The Jeep Talk Show podcast where I am a co-host. I love to hear their stories which inspire me. That is how I discovered my joy of off-roading.
Can you explain a recent project you’ve been working on?
My most recent project is one continual project. Most all Jeepers understand this — #ItsAJeepThing. I am constantly making my Jeep my own — a Jeep unique to me. About a year after purchasing my Jeep I discovered the world of off-roading, which is now one of my passions. My project is to also modify my Jeep to withstand the stress of off-roading; and currently is to fortify the Jeep’s undercarriage with skid plates. My goal is to make the modifications on my own like I did with most all the other changes on my Jeep.
What’s the favorite type of flooring you have in your home?
Funny you ask this. My kitchen floor is horrible and I have hated it for years. My plan was to put in hardwood floors, but when we ripped up the carpet in our dining room and living room, we found the original 1970s hardwood in pretty good condition underneath. Now I am at a loss of what to do in my kitchen not knowing what would look good with the old hardwood floors plus the granite tile in our entry way.
