Kim Profile PicMy name is Kimberly, but most call me Kim. I grew up in the very small town of Monticello in Northeast Missouri. I grew up even more when I moved to Columbia to attend the University of Missouri. I spent almost 10 years in Columbia, followed by a brief stint in the DC area, two years overseas in Italy, and most recently split my time between the small town I love, Monticello, and Ft. Benning, Georgia!

If you haven’t guessed it already by the long list of places I’ve called home, I am married to an Army guy. 😉 We met in grade school and against all the odds married shortly after our college graduations. We live a crazy life. He is amazing at what he does, although, I honestly don’t know exactly what that is on a daily basis. The military allows us to live a great life and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

If you know me very well at all, you know I love to work and keep myself involved in a million things at all times. I rarely take time to just sit down and do nothing. I enjoy making the most out of every day and the feeling of accomplishing something worthwhile.

In the past several years I spent the majority of my time traveling the European countryside { and man, was that an eye-opening experience }, doing as much freelance floral design work as I could fit into my schedule and from time-to-time doing a few fun things on my own with my floral business, Florassentials.   In my spare time I torture myself with CrossFit workouts, tend to my garden, travel, work on updating our house, shop for antiques to fill our house, dabble in photography and a number of other hobbies!
