Hi there! Welcome to Full & Merry, so glad you came to visit!
My name is Mary and I have been a long time blog reader of fitness and health blogs and discovered many mom and lifestyle blogs while pinning my little heart away on maternity leave. I always dreamed of having my own blog and just recently decided to pursue it.
I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri and I never see myself leaving. I graduated from the University of Missouri in 2010 with a degree in Hotel & Restaurant Management with an emphasis in Event Planning. However, one week prior to graduating I knew I had to follow my heart and obtain the degree that I was meant to have which happens to be on the other side of the spectrum...nursing. I then re-enrolled at Maryville University and did an accelerated nursing program and graduated in 2013 with by bachelors in nursing and I have never looked back.
Currently I work as a part-time nurse in a step-down cardiac unit and I love (almost) every minute of it. I am a full-time mom to two wonderful little boys and a wife to my very best friend of 10 years (married for 5). I also work very part-time with my amazing husband, where he deserves all the credit in the world, at our very own spice and seasonings company, Twisted Belly.
This blog will feature a little of everything. As my motto says, "A full life is a merry life," and I truly believe that. There are many ways to have a full and merry life and I will take you on that journey as we discover it together! Enjoy little life hacks, recipes, random stories, and anything else that may tickle your fancy while over here. Take a seat, grab a cold one, and settle down, let's have some fun and live a full and merry life together.
