We are the Hansen's. There is never a dull moment. Life is crazy, noisy and busy and we wouldn't want it any other way.

I'm Renee, and I graduated with a Fine Arts degree from Iowa State University, located in Ames, Iowa. Other than being a mom, wife and decorating stuff, I also work full-time. I have worked as a graphic designer at a newspaper, advertising agency, non-profit and now an agricultural corporation. I recently became an Independent Beachbody Coach which is helping my family and others be more fit and healthy, something we all need as we age. I love being crafty and creating pretty much anything.

My husband, Josh, and I met in college at Iowa State University. We got married right after I graduated, in 1998 in my hometown, Lake Forest, Illinois. Our wedding was so amazing, (at least we think so) it was a reflection of so many of our personal interests. In fact, our rehearsal dinner started with a double header at Wrigley field watching the Chicago Cubs WIN both games!!! Now that's a great start to a happy marriage, right?

We currently live in central Iowa and we love the Midwest. Our entire family enjoys the outdoors, sports, golfing, skiing and biking.  Oh, and how could I forget...working on projects.

We have three kids, Sidney (2002), Sawyer (2004) and Kennady (2008). They keep us very active with school and sports.

I hope you enjoy my blog. I only post when I have something fun to share and the time to share it. I love working on projects and sharing them with you, my readers.
