Hey besties! I want to introduce myself more in depth than the about me section on my website. If you haven't read it yet - read it here! You'll find out exactly how Kind and Brave Designs began!
I live in South Jersey and have lived in the area my entire life. I attended Lock Haven University in Pennsylvania for college and ended up right back in NJ after graduation. I have BS in recreation management and have been working at a ymca summer camp since I received my degree. I am a full-time day camp director.... yes, it is full time. it truly takes 9.5 months to plan for a 2.5 month program. I promise to one day write a blog about all of the unthinkable things I encounter during the summer months.
I married my husband, Bradley, in 2016. camp brought us together as his sister and I worked together. side note - our wedding was literally the best day in my entire life. I probably brought all of the Photo Booth props on the dance floor and danced the night away.
in 2017, we welcomed a baby girl into the world, Zoe. Zoe is currently 4 years old and is the exact replica of me. Sometimes it's a good thing and other times it's a scary thing!
Here are a few of my favorite things:
pizza - there is nothing like a good, plain cheese pizza
iced coffee - it doesn't matter if it's snowing, give me all the iced coffee
Taco Bell - I love Taco Bell more than I care to admit but if you know, you know
make up - I recently really got into make up. I blame my Ipsy subscription
board games - I will learn and plan any game. my all time favorites are ticket to ride, now board, and forbidden island. However, I do love a good game of scattergories.
binge watching tv shows - I prefer tv shows over movies. but my toxic trait is that I have to binge something in it's entirely before I watch something else. currently watching: blue bloods
vacations - my motto is, it's not a vacation if I have to bring a jacket :)
Here are a few things that I dislike:
bugs - ewwwwwwwww. gross. can't stand them. I know what you're thinking. "how do you work at a summer camp?" and my answer is, I just scream when they come near me.
waking up early - my bed is way too cozy to be getting out of it before 9 am.
my husband putting his clothes next to the hamper instead of inside - this requires no explanation.
jeans - I am not sure why these things were ever created.
Thanks for being here, bestie!
be kind and be brave,
