I'm Carrie Monroe O'Keefe and you've found my blog. I started a blog called The Year of What If in January of 2012 as a way to propel myself to do something small each day to improve my life. It all started HERE when I first asked “what if?” This year I'm doing my best to live a year of enchantment. Some days I'll be asking "what if?" and some days I'll just be blabbering about the magic that is my life.
Here’s the skinny…I'm a soon-to-be 37 year-old living in the Twin Cities area with my husband, my two little girls, and my dog Sullivan. I work full-time in sales and write at night in my glamorous office (laundry room), in my beautiful home (messy and tiny), in designer threads (sweats).
I’m surrounded by a tight-knit, funny, sarcastic, intelligent, and successful family. My group of girlfriends is made up of incredibly successful, sophisticated, strong, witty, and wickedly smart women…but if pressed…they could likely throw down with the likes of the Bloods if it meant protecting each other and our families. You mess with the bull you get the horns…of all my friends. You’ve been warned.
Some of my faves so far, and those that really give an accurate picture of who I am...
- Our. Little. Secret.
- Bring. The. Magic.
- Do. It. For. You. (Me.)
- A. Rising. Tide.
- Tap-tap. Is. This. Thing. On.
- Stop. Signs. Don't. Kiss. Back
- Let's. Get. Physical.
- Screw. The. Joneses.
- What. A. Wonderful. World.
- Eat. Your. Heart. Out.
- So. This. Is. What. This. Feels. Like.
- The. Unicorn. And. The. Elf.
- 36. Is. The. New. 25.
- Blog. Without. A. Face.
I'd love for you to keep coming around. Because I'm writing each day there will definitely be great days and less than stellar days. I promise to do my best to tell you how I'm making this year magical as often as I'm able!
