Thanks for visiting! My name is Hope and I am the creative mind behind Simply Hope. I have a background in human development and family science as well as individual and family wellness. I love thrifting, repurposing, vintage goods, and teaching others how to live their best life. If you can’t find me on my computer writing, you will likely find me behind (not in front of) a camera lens. I truly enjoy creative things and using my God given talents to help others.
My life has been a series of roller coaster rides over the past 2 years, which have ended up leading me on a path that I never expected and I find myself at a loss for words about the insanity that has been my world during this time. Many times I have found myself in a position where I have been telling someone about the events of the past 2 years only to look at them and realize that they must think I am making it all up! A historic flood, losing a house, buying and remodeling a different house, a couple of job changes, and an entire relocation in a matter of 20 months is enough to baffle anyone.
But, what I have come to realize through all of it is that I have one life to live and in this one life, I want to truly live. No more waiting around for my time to come, it is time for me to step out and do what I love. This is why I decided to create this blog. I hope that you enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed making it all happen!
