It’s Nice to Meet You

I’m Natalie and believe it or not, I enjoy exercise. Exercise brings a lot of joy to my life and I want to help others fall in love with fitness too. I feel physically and mentally stronger from regular exercise, and an added bonus is that I can enjoy all my favorite foods without guilt. If you enjoy exercise AND eating delicious food, this blog is for you!


Find Your Passion & Live With Joy

I was born and raised in St. Louis, MO. I am passionate about this city and supporting local businesses. It is such a joy for me to write about the things I love, in a city I love, surrounded by people that I love.

I live in West County with my husband and our 3 children. My kids inspire me everyday. Because of them, you will notice many of the restaurants and eateries I feature are family friendly. Prior to launching this blog, I worked for leading cosmetics company for almost 20 years in various corporate & field roles. Over a decade of that time was spent living in New York City, which is where I met my husband and we had our first child. Prior to that, I lived in New Orleans where I graduated from Tulane University’s, A.B. Freeman School of Business. Being away from St. Louis for so long has made me appreciate all that this great city has to offer, and I am so glad to be back in my hometown and raising my family in the LOU!
