Guest post: Alli from Life on Leroy!

Alli is one of my dearest blogging buddies.  Our paths crossed a few months ago as we were paired to exchange care packages for a big link up party and we have only gotten closer since.  I love her genuineness and her zest for life.  Check out her blog, but beware–you’ll most likely get sucked right in…


Howdy Hopes and Dreams readers! I’m Alli and I blog over at Life on LeRoy. I’m a full time working mom, full time wife, full time blogger, full time life lover! Ok, really I am a mom to a very energetic, beautiful toddler named Dayton and wife to a handsome, amazing husband, Tony. We live in Wisconsin and love everything outdoors, cooking, photography, taking walks and simple living.
1.) Tell us a little about yourself (family, where you live, job, etc)
I work full time at a hospital and truly love my job and feel very blessed about it. Although it can be very intense and stressful I still enjoy getting up and going to work everyday. When I’m not working I’m hanging out with my family. Nothing brings me more joy than being with my family. We love going to parks on sunny afternoons, having campfires, kayaking, hiking, and basically anything else outdoors! I really love living in the Midwest and love the seasons that come and go.
2.) Favorite vacation spot and why?
For our honeymoon my husband and I road-triped to Montana. Basically it was love at first sight and we always talk about moving there someday. We stayed in a little cabin on the Yellowstone River, fly fished, drove to the top of the mountains and hiked. That was the first time I’d seen mountains and I can’t wait to go back. We always talk about taking our little man there! We can’t wait to share our love for Montana with him. It’s breathtaking.
3.) What do you most look forward to every day?
Getting home from work, putting on my comfys and tickle fighting with my little man! I love that time with him! I also look forward to the time alone with my husband after little man goes to bed. It’s “our” time and it’s priceless.
4.) Favorite food?
Mashed potatoes smothered with butter! Y-U-M!
5.) Tell us something you are looking forward to this summer!
My brother’s wedding! My little brother is getting married and I can’t wait to spend time with family and friends during the events. We don’t really have any vacations planned so we’ll just be doing lots of hanging out and checking out the local beaches and picnicking at State parks.
6.) Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because both my brother’s had blogs 🙂 Seriously! I did a little more looking into the blogging community and really loved how I could write and share pictures. I love writing and I love taking pictures. Blogging has been such an amazing journey for me!
7.) What is your favorite part of blogging?
My favorite part about blogging is meeting people from all over the country! I love finding new blogs and learning about people from different walks of life. I’m so intrigued by people! I am one of those people that can go to a mall and just sit and watch people!
Thanks so much for having me Jessi!
Remember to always reflect on the little things in life, because it’s the little things that make life so beautiful!



Head on over to her blog and share some love with her, and let her know Jessi sent you.  And Al, give Day a big squishy from me!
