Welcome to Living Out Loud!


I wanted to start writing a blog about every day life. I enjoy reading others’ blogs about their lives, so why not me?! I’ve gone about most my life not sharing too much, or just sharing the basic details and keeping quiet, and now I have a chance to open my mouth – at least virtually – so I’m going to do it. I want to share some of the things I’m discovering about life, and I want to learn about how others are dealing with the same kinds of issues. I hope people will share their thoughts, interact, and we can have some fun with this! I’ve been going through a lot of change over the last year, including getting married, moving from California to Ohio, and becoming a new pet owner! Jump into my journey and give your advice, share some of your stories, or just read for fun!
