Hi, I’m Tara, nice to meet you. 😀

I wanted to share 7 fun facts about me:

  1. I love the Chicago Bears! I’m a sucker for football.  My love of football started at the Friday night football games in high school when I played in the band.
  2. I’m an only child, but I love taking care of kids.  It was my cousins when I was younger.  Now it’s a full time job!
  3. I graduated from Hope College in three years with a bachelor of arts in psychology and Spanish.
  4. I love everything Disney and have spent many vacation days visiting the parks.
  5. My favorite candy is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Yum!
  6. I named my car Lowly Worm after the character from Richard Scarry’s Busytown.
  7. I love a good cup of tea or coffee.  My favorites are mint tea and cinnamon dulce lattes!


I started this blog with the intention of creating a cozy corner to spark conversation and community as well as share ideas and inspiration.  As a twenty-something trying to find my way through life, I think it is important to find others to walk with and build each other up.  I want to be real with all of you and I hope to be a positive influence in your life.  I know that together, we can grow and change and make it, while still having time to slow down, talk and have a cup of Tea with Tara.  😉
