New reader? Start here!

Hi there! I'm so happy that you came across my blog. I'm Miriam, the one on the left. The handsome cowboy to my right is Richard, my husband. Fun fact: We are 25 years apart, the same age difference as Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas (the similarities end there).
Our love story is unusual, which is why I not only wrote about it here on the blog, but I also wrote a book about it! Let's Pretend This Is Normal is out now, which is a dream come true. 

I thought I would give you a little roadmap of the blog, so you can decide what it - and I - are all about.

A good place to start is right here, where you will learn that I have been married for ages, despite my youthful appearance. Richard keeps me in dogs, but also made me an instant stepmom of 4 when we got hitched all those years ago. That's more than enough for me, so there won't be any babies of the human variety in my future. Anything else with fur or feathers goes, though. 

The top three posts my readers like the most are
Lamb post (I have no idea why it's so popular, but it has over 5,000 hits)
Love your fucking life (I should swear in my titles more often) and
Grey: yay or nay? (I say yay!)
I'm sure there is a clever explanation about SEO and using catch phrases people google and all that, but since I don't know how that stuff works I'm just pleasantly surprised and slightly baffled about the popularity of these particular posts. 

My favourite series I created is Boss Women, which features strong, inspiring women who are pursuing their dreams and live kickass, awesome lives.

My main goal is trying to figure out life, and taking you all along for the ride. I thrive on finding life lessons in unlikely places: In growing out my hairhaving to deal with changeon the yoga mat, or in a pile of wood.  

I'm on  mission to not only create the best and wildest life of my dreams, but to also inspire and teach you to do the same. 
We only have one life to live, and we should all strive to make them as happy, filled with laughter, adventure, wonder and joy as possible. 

Together, we can do this!

Thanks for stopping by. ❤
