About Kristie


Welcome to my blog and thanks so much for taking the time to visit. Next to my commitment to God and my family, there are two passions that I serve: A love of interior design and the need to feel the energy that health and fitness brings to my life. I’m not really sure how these two things connect. Maybe it’s the desire to see something transform. Whatever the underlying reason, I have discovered that the two passions are equal and have decided to write about both in this blog.

As long as I can remember, it has been one of my missions in life to beautify my living spaces. Whether playing in my makeshift play house as a child or moving into my first dorm room in college, I could not rest, work or play until I had hung some type of art on the walls, incorporated some textiles, and added color to the space,. The same is still true today.

Growing up my parents saw to it that I was always involved in some type of sport. I was never really good at it but I think it helped work a lot of hyper activity out of my system. I never struggled with weight as a child but like so many I packed on a few pounds my freshman year in college. Running, weight training and watching my food portions took care of my extra weight. For the most part I was able to maintain a healthy weight with consistent exercise and eating a reasonable diet until I had a life threatening accident. After recovering from this accident, my ideas about health and fitness shifted. I was forced to put it as a top priority in my life. Every cloud has a silver lining and health and fitness is the silver lining of my accident cloud.

Whether you are into health and fitness or interior decorating, I would love it if you would follow along. And please introduce yourself and tell me a little bit about what you love to do!
