My name is MaryFran and I am on a mission to make my life full, productive and happy. There are various facets of my life that I am quite interested in. These facets include travel, cooking and weight loss and so many more and they are all integral to making my life the best one possible. I currently write a blog about my weight loss efforts and my attempt to lose well over 100 pounds. I post frequently about my success and failures on that venture at my website, Beliefinmyself.com. While I refer to that website here and there, this is the place where I can put all of my pursuits together in one place and continue to work to believe in living my life to the fullest.
Travel I currently work a 9-5 job That job does restrict some of my other pursuits. But, I still get out and explore as much as I can locally and enjoy spreading my wings and going further away when the opportunity arises. I would love to have more time to travel and explore! I travel with the love of my life, Jason who is just as happy exploring and is adding as many items on the 'we have to go there' list as I do. It doesn't matter if it's something he chooses or something that I have chosen, we both enjoy it to the fullest.
Product Reviews Years ago, I learned that I love to write honest and transparent reviews. I started by writing reviews on tripadviser.com. There, I was able to review the various places that we have visited. Over the years I expanded to writing occasional reviews on my personal blog and on Amazon and through this website. I strive to be fair, open and honest in my reviews.
Recipes I am always looking for a new recipe to try! Sometimes I have some that we say "never again". But more often than not, we enjoy the new recipes and tastes that come out of the kitchen!
We currently live in Frederick, MD with our spoiled rotten cat, 4 hermit crabs and one betta fish who shares his tank with a snail. We are always looking for our next adventure and hope you join us as we live our lives to the fullest!
