Meet Kelly

Hey there, you fabulous souls! 🌟 Welcome to my cozy corner of the internet, Kelly’s Thoughts On Things. If you’re all about FAMILY-FOOD-FUN, then you’ve just hit the jackpot!

Meet the Woman Behind the Words

About Kelly

Hey, I’m Kelly, your go-to gal for everything delightful and real. I’m living my best life with Ronnie, my rockstar hubby, and our two amazing adult kids. Devon, my son, has autism and is my forever hero.

About me and Ronnie

I’m not just his mom; I’m his advocate, his caretaker, and his biggest cheerleader. Then there’s Amanda, my radiant daughter, who’s off at college discovering her own unique path. And let’s not forget my adorable pet zoo—they’re the sprinkles on my life’s cupcake!

About me and Kids

Life’s Curveballs and Our Health Journey

Life has thrown us some curveballs, too. Ronnie’s been diagnosed with Lung Fibrosis, CKD, and Heart Failure. I’ve got my own set of challenges like RA, Sjogren’s Syndrome, Anemia, and more. But here’s the thing: we’re not letting these challenges define us. Instead, they’ve inspired a whole new wellness journey that I’m excited to share with you. From navigating healthcare to finding holistic therapies, we’re on a quest to live our best lives. I’ve spent countless hours researching treatments, talking to experts, and experimenting with natural remedies. So, when I share wellness tips or health hacks, know that they’re coming from a place of deep understanding and firsthand experience.

Why I Started Blogging

So, why did I dive into the blogging world back in 2012? My mind was a swirling cauldron of ideas, and my heart was bursting with stories and experiences to share. Working from home was the cherry on top, allowing me to be the hands-on mom I’ve always dreamed of being. Plus, I wanted to create a community where people could come for inspiration, advice, and a good ol’ virtual hug. 🤗
