with equal parts compassion & hilarity

Hey folks!

I am the product of small-town Northwestern Minnesota, where baiting a hook and building tree forts are essential survival skills. I’ve loved flannels, traveling, words, and laughing for as long as I can remember.

I started blogging mostly to make people laugh while reflecting on the sometimes hilarious, sometimes tough parts of life. I do my best to write with equal parts compassion and hilarity.

Looking forward to laughing together with you!

Happy you’re here!
