31 in 31

Wow, 31 years on this earth that's crazy. It's gone by in the blink of an eye. My mom has five of us all older (I'm the baby of the family) so I can't believe that at this point we are all over thirty. In this 31st year of my life, I have come to a very big...

Hey, I’m Nora!

I am a 31-year-old stay at home wife, married to my husband, Sean of 10 years and we have two dachshunds together.

Our doxies (one boy and one girl) are named Bouncer and Maggie. We live in Oregon- the most beautiful and diverse climate on the planet.

We just bought our own house and are looking into more travel, new business and growth opportunities to expand, building our dream lives one day at a time and sharing that all with you.

I look forward to having you here beside us.
