A Little Bit Whitney

Let Me Introduce Myself

Hi! I'm Whitney! A 30-something year old, born and raised the PNW. I'm married to my high school love and we have 3 perfect little boys, Cason (7), Kade (3) and Easton (4 mo), living in the same community we grew up in!

Family is my everything! I'm all about living intentionally and making those memories! Planning things makes my heart happy. I love to travel, Disney and Cabo tend to be our go to destinations but we try to mix in some other places here and there. I'm all about birthday parties. I have an obsession with calendars and office supplies, I can't seem to walk out of TJ Maxx without buying a picture frame (or 2 or 3) and I will never say no to Mexican food!

My Story In A Nutshell

In my early 20's I thought I had my whole life figured out... graduate with my bachelors, get married, buy a house, have babies, climb the career ladder, go on a decent vacation or two each year and grow old. Everything was going to plan, I had the degree, I was married, we owned a house, I had a career with room to grow and a healthy baby boy. And then my mom died of cancer.

My mom's death flipped my life upside-down and the only way I knew how to survive was to keep pushing forward. At the time I didn't realize it, but I was no longer living in the moment but going through the motions of life instead. Over the next 4 years, I got a promotion, changed employers and worked with one of the best teams ever, built our dream house and had our second son. Life looked good on the outside but those 4 years I was stru-guh-ling on the inside.

In the summer of 2018 I started making some changes. I started taking care of myself. I joined Beachbody, and you may roll your eyes at this, but it changed my life. Beachbody opened up the doors of personal development for me. I worked through a lot of my internal struggles and shifted my mindset. I became more intentional with life and how I spent my time. I changed up who I was following on social media (this was huge). I started to dream again and I allowed myself to change the vision 20 year old me came up with. I gave myself permission to not meet the expectations I felt others had for me and I started following my heart. Three years later, after a lot of questioning and examining my life, my heart led me here.

To be honest, the "Blog World" was never a road I pictured myself going down. I don't view myself as a writer or an expert in anything really and I struggle big time with Imposter Syndrome. Up until a month ago this honestly was never on my radar. Then one day while doing the dishes, this idea popped into my head for a blog post and it never went away. Instead it involved into a vision for me and before I knew it, I started making A Little Bit Whitney a reality.

Hopes for Going Forward

At the end of the day, I'm not sure what this space will involve into. All I know is I want to share with you raw, real life. The high times, the hard times and everything in between so we can laugh our way through the ridiculousness and celebrate the good times. And hopefully you walk away feeling a little bit more encouraged and inspired to conquer life.
