Hello! Welcome to Beer and Junk, Adventures in Parenting, (why “Beer and Junk”? Check out Title Page), the chronicles of my life as a business owning, beer drinking, girls weekend loving, falling asleep on date night with my husband, mom of three… plus Griffey the Big Red Dog.
Three things to know about me:
- I am a massage therapist and the proud owner of Five Island Spa Co. We operate out of a small, unassuming building in downtown Emmetsburg, Ia and provide incredible services such as Thai Yoga Massage, and deep tissue Rehabilitative Massage, with some of the most professional and talented service providers you will ever meet. Keep up to date with our latest specials and events on our Facebook page!
I met my husband when I was 20 (that’s us in the middle, rocking the super awesome puca shell necklace and corduroy skirt), and it’s been all sunshine and rainbows ever since. Or not. At any rate, we haven’t been featured on an episode of Dateline Investigates and I still count him as one of my all time besties so… #winning
- Most importantly, I’m mom to these three, who all came into our lives in just four years to a chorus of, “Oh wow. Another one? Already?” and, “Was this planned?” Now two, four, and six, they are the inspiration for this blog and my constant reminder to find the funny among the craziness… which has been a nice alternative to completely losing my mind.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope Beer and Junk inspires you to find the joy and laughter in your own chaos!
