Get to Know Me

I'm Kayla!  I am a wife, mother, and down home country gal who is completely at peace and unapologetically happy living in what many refer to as "the middle of nowhere." AKA, Wyoming, or as I like to call it....home.

In 2016 I left my marketing job in the corporate realm to become a stay-at-home mom to a curly blonde-haired, blue-eyed little boy who has somehow managed to steal my heart despite many failed attempts at tempting me to sell him to the zoo.  There is more personality in his pinky toe than I have in my entire body and I simply have to thank God for that or else my days would be incredibly boring!

The other stud in my life is, of course, my electrician husband.  He is tall, dark, and incredibly handsome, but if you ask him he always tells people that he is the one who married up.  Blush!  So I keep him around.  Plus, we make really cute kids.  I mean, c'mon, look at those two.

Though I have my Master's Degree in Media Communication, my husband tells me I am much more talented in the Smart A** division.  And, yes, I did just censor myself.  Very rarely does this mama curse.  So if I do--look out--you know I mean business.

As much as I loved the marketing world, I have always had a hidden desire to write, hence this blog.  I started The Rustic Hideaway four years ago.  However, life soon got in the way when I got a job in the "real world", gave up on writing anything past memos and emails, became a mommy and found that I actually have something worth writing about.

So here you have it.  My blog, which originally began as a creative outlet for whatever I darn well wanted to write about, has unexpectedly become a mommy blog that focuses on what I refer to as the Four F's: Faith, Food, Family, and Fitness!

I love God, my family, my health and my food.  If you can jibe with that please subscribe to the blog, follow me on social media, or just outright stalk me--you know, so long as it is not in a serial killer creepy way.  I'd love to have you along for this journey I call life.
