An Introduction.

I don't know what this blog is, what it will be about, or what my goal for it is. All I know is that this is the third blog I've tried creating, and if I've gone through the labor-intensive process of starting up a new blog three times, then it's obviously something I enjoy in a way that I can not quite comprehend yet.

I guess that could be the goal of this new blog, titled "The New American Pioneer" to epitomize the way I view myself. I draw much of my fashion and lifestyle inspirations from the ambitious pioneers who excavated the final frontier throughout the majority of the 1800s and rely on female pioneer figureheads such as Laura Ingalls Wilder and Caddie Woodlawn to explain my ideals to others. Since I was young, and by young I mean my mid-elementary school years, I've always wanted to live out west. I currently live in suburban southeast Wisconsin and feel blessed to have grown up in such a beautiful, busy place, but long for the quiet of the northwoods and western plains, plateaus, and mountains so I can spend more time meditating in solitude and enjoying the natural world before my time here expires. Next year when I attend The Barrett Honors at Arizona State University, I hope at least some of my frontier fantasies will come alive! *crosses fingers*

Aside from the American west and 1800s history, my passions include water skiing, Pomeranian folk dancing, playing the flute and piccolo, reading spoken word poetry, and observing/emulating/modeling/ and creating street fashion. I hope that all I write and document here will be of value and inspiration to you. Please feel free to email me with any questions and/or comments at, and don't hesitate to share posts from this blog on your websites, blogs, and/or social media pages as long as the blog link or some other form of credit is given.

Thanks much!
