That's me! I feel most at peace when I'm close to water. Must've beena mermaid in a past life!


That’s me in the Bahamas! My weave is all salty and blown around and I couldn’t be happier about it.

I’m Iris. I live in Florida. I’m enjoying life. I’m proud of myself for not giving up. My super power is making ridiculous cheeseboards. My hobbies include gardening, reading, and trying to get out of my comfort zone every now and then. I just finished my first novel The Girl in the Mural. I’m excited to share it with the world!


I created this wellness blog as a means of helping others through sharing my stories. I feel like I’ve lived many different lives in the last thirty years, and the lessons I’ve learned from each could help someone else. I’ve been an Air Force brat, active duty Air Force, and now I’m just learning to be me. I feel much older than thirty years due to the wide swath of experiences had and lessons learned. Each life lesson has shaped the woman I am.
