Hi, I’m Annie! A wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and more. I was born and raised in Colorado and even though I may have daydreams of moving to Maine, I can never imagine leaving my home. I went to college in northern Colorado and got a degree in Journalism… that I do not - in any way - use. I’m a certified yoga instructor and I have a lifelong dream of owning my own flower shop. I married my wonderful, caring, smart husband in 2011. We lived in Fort Collins for five years before having our beautiful daughter in July 2015. She is amazing, perfect and the reason I started this blog.  We are in the process of moving back to Denver largely because we want her to be closer to our family and friends. We have two Samoyeds, only the best dogs ever, named Igloo and Winter. I rescued Igloo when I was still in high school; my husband and I adopted Winter five years later.

My beautiful family

I want to share my life, ideas and dreams. I want to reach other moms, soon-to-be-moms, wives, sisters, homemakers. I am not going to give you the answer to getting skinny, I’m not a DIYer, I am Simply Annie and that is all I want to be for you. Honest, real, and open. I will tell you all my thoughts and feelings. If I have them I will give you tips or info that may be of interest to you and I’ll do my best to never sugarcoat tough subjects.

Hopefully you’ll connect with me and what I write and I hope you decide to stay with me. I promise to keep you on your toes, I’ll try to make you laugh, and I’ll pour a glass of wine with you (in spirit) after a hard day, but together I think we’ll have more good days than bad.

Love, Annie
