Hello! My name is Liesl Daum...
...Hence the name behind the website. I had been wanting to start a blog for years, so I finally bit the bullet. I have a real passion for the little things that make life really great, and due to my "open book" nature, you will see I write about pretty much anything and everything a girl/mother/wife might relate to. I have always enjoyed writing and sharing with others so that is exactly what this is intended for. I post my thoughts, life experiences, motherhood journey, advice, recipes, DIY projects, photography, random ideas... Quite literally anything and everything!
My husband and I have been married for almost 6 years now. We love exploring the great outdoors, hiking, camping, traveling, scuba diving, eating, and just hanging out as a family. I was born and raised in Arizona (Go Devils!) and Eric is from Ohio (Go Bucks!). I grew up dancing, riding and showing Quarter Horses (AQHA, IBHA & ABRA), and dabbling here and there in art (drawing, painting, etc.). I was raised LDS but took a long hiatus starting in high school until some time after Eric and I were married a few years ago - so 11 years "inactive", give or take. I was a bit of a wild child for a while there, but now I couldn't imagine life without the gospel. What a blessing my life's journey has been and where I have landed. God has a plan for all of us, we might not know what it is until we go through it and look back but, rest assured, He is always there and everything certainly does happen for a reason... good and bad.
I come from a large, crazy family that I seriously adore (no matter how dysfunctional they can be sometimes), and my husband's amazing family addition has been the best bonus I could have ever imagined. I gave birth to our first child in 2015 and am about to have another at the end of 2017. I am completely obsessed with our son and being a mommy. Shortly before he was born I made the big decision to quit my corporate, Executive Assistant job and fully dedicate myself to our little angel from heaven because I truly believe that "The most important work you will ever do is within the walls of your own home." I am so grateful we have the option for me to stay home because I know not every mom can (and some don't want to - to each their own!), but for me, especially knowing what I know now, going through the things I had to endure and the lessons I learned to get me to this point, I absolutely wouldn't have it any other way.
Life is good... God is good...
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you back here again soon.
