Greetings & welcome to laps.lunges.leather! I’m a Midwest girl that found myself living the California dream after 35 years of snow, cold, humidity, and mosquito bites. For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a love of laps (running), lunges (being a fitness instructor), and leather (I love dressing up and high heels… and if the dress is hot & leather… then SCORE)! My husband likes to call me “front row” because I have a tendency to be a little too serious at times, but I’m finding that I give fewer F’s as I travel through the 40s. This blog is part of that process where I can continue to explore things that interest me, pursue my passions, and hopefully, help others to realize that this wonderful, beautiful life is not always easy, but more enjoyable when living one’s truths.
Aside from my time spent with laps, lunges and leather, I’m the wife of one pretty cool man! After crushing on Adam since my early 20s, we finally tied the knot in 2010. How lucky am I to have wed my best friend, an underpaid stylist, and reality checker all in one. After trying to have a human family, reality set in and we have entered the world of DINKS (Double Income No Kids) that probably eat out too much, indulge in top shelf gin or good reds, and have the time to take more naps than most children get. Together, we care for the world’s raddest dog named Rosie.
