Simply Taralynn About me page
Welcome to Simply Taralynn, my lifestyle blog. I’m so happy you stopped by. Never would have I ever imagined being a full-time blogger when I started sharing my weight loss on the internet almost eight years ago. This job has brought me many wonderful opportunities, connected me with incredible people, and I absolutely love doing it.

A little bit about me. I’m 28 years old and currently living in Charlotte, NC. I actually just bought my first home! I grew up in Iowa (Go Hawkeyes) but planted myself down south almost four years ago. I have two huge goldendoodles, and the greatest boyfriend (Kyle) a girl could as for. To top it off, I just ran my first half marathon in NYC, a goal I set almost ten years ago. I had some bumps in the road growing up, but I can honestly say that I’m so happy with where life has taken me. Everything has fallen into place, and I feel at peace. I’m human, so of course, I have “those days,” but they’re nothing I can’t get through.Simply Taralynn About me PageSimply Taralynn About me Page
So what do I blog about? Pretty much, well almost, everything. My recap posts seem to be the favorite at Simply Taralynn, and I really enjoy writing them. I write about the things I’ve been up to! They include eats, projects, fitness, coffee, dogs, relationship, and more. I also blog about my travelsfitness challengesrecipes, my favorite products, and sometimes fashion.

You’ll most likely find me out taking photos, playing tennis, antique shopping, walking the beach, enjoying the arts, painting, exploring new coffee shops, running with my dogs on a new hiking trail or vegging on the couch watching Netflix. I love flowers and gardening, sitting on the front porch drinking coffee, and enjoying the small things in life. I’m the type of person that bakes pumpkin bars in July, plays Christmas music in September, wishes it was summer in December, and can’t help but quote all of my favorite movies. <3

    Hi Tara!
    I’ve been following your blog for a VERY long time. Pretty much since your blog was under a different title. I have always felt connected with you, your successes, and struggles. It’s been a few years since I’ve checked your blog out but I am so happy to see that you have found peace and success. I admire that you have managed post so positively during your struggles. I often feel like I become a different person when going through struggles, like my mindset is no longer congruent with my ideals.

    Is this something that you have struggled with?
