About Me


“We need to hang around people that pour water on the fires of our fears, and throw gasoline on the passions of our dreams.” – Kris Vallotton

Hi! I’m Meghan, the woman behind the madness. Whether you’re an old friend or you’ve stumbled upon (remember that website?!) my blog, welcome!


Our house is somewhere back there!

I’m a runner, registered nurse, and cloth diapering momma, whose dogs keeps destroying any chances of a successful garden. The path to where I am and where I plan to go have not played in a straight line like I thought it would. Instead, it has been a chaotic, squiggly line and a bad game of connect the dots. I’m by no means perfect, I swear too much, and my favorite word is “obnoxious”, so continue at your own risk!

I’ve started this blog so I have a place to reminisce on my families adventures. I have always loved to keep journals and write down quotes, but I’ve never been the best at grammar and my thoughts can be chaotic. I think too quickly and speak too slowly.


Our spur of the moment Marshall Gulch hike that resulted in us seeing snow in Arizona in February!

My husband, Justin, and I live with our two daughters (Stella and Nora) and our two dogs (Dutch and Naomi) in southern Arizona. We love being outdoors, visiting IKEA, shopping at Trader Joe’s, reading, and eating somewhat healthy food (My mother argues I try and starve her when she visits).  Justin has a degree in industrial technology education, but plans to go back to school for animal science or wildlife management once he gets out of the army. We plan to down size or live in a camper once we get to Colorado so we can save money and enjoy the beauty the state has to offer.

Whether you are a parent, wife, military spouse, natural-ish living person, runner, nurse, adventurer, or something else all together, you will fit in perfectly! Thank you for visiting and I hope you have a blessed day.
