Hello!  Welcome!

My name is Victoria.  Thank you for looking around my blog.

I am a mother, former teacher, student, and friend.

I am a lover of laughing, autumn, traveling, all things sparkly or shiny, gold, makeup, Harry Potter and being tan.

I have a passion for crafts, history, learning, and making others feel good about themselves.

I try not to take things too seriously and I tend to think I’m funny.  I usually laugh at my own sassiness on the daily.  It’s fine.

Right now, I am a full time graduate student and a single mom. *warning, sappy post* I am obsessed with my child, who I know is the coolest person in my life and such a blessing.  Seriously, I could just stare at her all day, it takes my breath away just how beautiful she is.  Jeesh do I sound creepy?  Hope not.  Basically my daughter is my best friend and I could not imagine my life without her. *ending of sappy post*

This is my beautiful girl! xox

I am planning on using this blog to share ideas on mommyhood, education, beauty, diys, and traveling.

I have been thinking of making a blog for a while.  The name of the blog is from a quote that describes the sea.  “I want to be wild, beautiful, and free, just like the sea.”  I love the ocean, I should have been a mermaid in another life.  However, most days I hate being outside because of mosquitoes.. like ew.  Who thought it was a good idea to have mosquitoes in the Midwest? Rude.

But in all seriousness, thank you for stopping by my page. 🙂
