Hi, my name is Ronnie. I’m a wife, mom of 5, “Gigi” to 5 and mommy to one spoiled fur-baby! My life has taken many twists and turns through the years – I have been an unwed mom, a stay at home mom, a widowed mom, a remarried mom, a working mom, a home school mom, a chronically ill mom. We’ve had children with seizures, heart problems, cutting issues, anorexia, child predator problems. I’ve dealt with chronic illness/pain for over 15 years. I’ve struggled with depression most of my life, and battled my weight all my adult life. Almost four years ago I underwent bariatric weight loss surgery. Life has never been dull, but God has always been good!
Through all that life has thrown my way, God has allowed me to find joy and goodness and beauty all around me. I hope that I am able to share that with you and help you to find some as well.
I love fashion and style, and I’m thoroughly addicted to thrift shopping. After my last child graduated from high school, God allowed me to pursue a lifelong dream and I received my certifications as a Personal Fashion Stylist and a make-up artist. I’m excited to be taking you along on this journey with me! I have a passion for showing others that finding a sense of style and beauty DOES NOT have to come with a hefty price tag and is available to everyone regardless of age or size! So, we’ll be thrifting and searching our own closets and finding ways to find a style that anyone can achieve!
If you’re looking for an honest life perspective from someone who has found beauty in the normal and the ashes, as well as in the view from the mountain top, than welcome to my blog!
