About Me

Who I am:

Hi everyone! My name is Kansas ( just like the state ) and I thought I’d tell you a little about me. I am the proud mother of four amazing little people Emmalee (7), Ansley (4), Salvatore (3) ( Sam for short ) and Iris (11 months). They are my whole entire world and I would be utterly lost without them. I’ve been married for almost 10 years. I currently work full time as a footwear/ apparel supervisor at Gander Outdoors.  My favorite tv show is Supernatural. I’m a gamer mommy, and my game of choice is World of Warcraft. I’m a big nerd but I wouldn’t trade the way I am for anything. I LOVE Mexican food, I’m pretty sure I bleed tacos at this point.

How did I get started blogging?

I’ve always loved writing and connecting with others, but on November 5th, 2016 my life was forever changed when I was hit head-on by a drunk driver and broke three out of my four limbs. I was in a wheel-chair and unable to work and needed something to keep my mind busy. I was very lucky to be alive and very lucky that my friend Stephanie ( check her page out here ) helped me get started blogging.

Break the STIGMA

I am a big advocate of mental health awareness. I have suffered from major depressive disorder and anxiety on and off since I was a teenager. I hate that there is such a big stigma on mental health. I want to break that! Someone should never have to be afraid to get help.
