My name is Dawn Simons and I am a born and raised city girl who fell in love with a cash crop farmer and now fully embraces the quiet, country lifestyle. I am a go-getter and a highly self-motivated marketing and events professional. My passions include fitness, fashion, travel, helping others, and pushing myself outside of my comfort zone.
I decided to start this blog so that I could connect with more people like me and to share my experiences and challenges so that I can help others. If I could inspire or provide hope for a single individual, I will have met my goal. I’ve always had a passion for sharing my favourite outfits, recipes, DIY hacks, home décor and motivational inspiration and I thought this would be a great platform for me to connect with more people.
I also LOVE to design and work on websites ever since I learned how – which was really just from a search engine and a passion to learn something new. I have two favourite sayings that I like to live by, ‘life doesn’t happen to you, it happens for you’ and ‘everything is figureoutable’. Google is your best friend and if you ever don’t know how to do something just look it up on the Internet.
Some things that you should know about me, I have the world’s worst memory and my grammar is similar to that of a grade 5. Thank God for autocorrect. Seems kinda silly for someone with poor grammar skills to be writing a blog BUT that is another reason I decided to do this. I believe that when you feel the most uncomfortable, is when you will see the biggest growth. My hope is to develop my communication skills, so bear with me (e.g. 1 – who knew that saying was bear?! I totally typed bare).
This blog will share a little bit of everything! I will take you through my journey of living on the farm, getting married, starting a life with my fiancé, and sharing all of my favourite things. My hope is that you find something that inspires you or makes you smile. Subscribe below to get updates on my latest blog posts.
