Welcome to Dream Big and Buy the Shoes...I'm SO happy you found yourself here. My mission is to share things with you that excite in hopes to make you smile. I'm big on inspiration and making dreams come true, and hope my community does that for you. 

About Me:
I am a Penn State alum, WE ARE! who studied Communications & Media Studies. While I wasn't sure what I wanted to be when I grow up, I realize that I'm always learning which keeps life interesting. I now work in Insurance as an Underwriter, and learn new things every day- it's great.

I'm a mom to 2 - our teenager Ethan and a baby girl Bella who was born in October, and wife to one, Charles on paper...but who is often referred to here as Charlie. We live in Erie, Pa- where it snows a lot in the Winter, but our sunsets in the Summer are the best in the world!

I love laughing to the point of tears, traveling, sharing a good beauty tip, attempting new things in the kitchen and with hot glue guns & having fun with life. I drink really big cups of coffee, chase the sky at sunrise and sunset to capture it's beauty, and never met a cupcake I didn't like.

I'm so so happy you found yourself here and really appreciate you visiting my blog, always remember that anything is possible...Dream Big!
