My Blog Grows Up



Welcome to my blog...Living Light and Breezy.


As the title says, I am excited to show you my journey as an Army wife, student, coach and someone living life to its fullest.


I graduated from Van Meter High School in May 2012. I finished my associates degree in May 2013. I am currently attending my second to last term at CSU-Global to get my bachelors degree in marketing.


From the time I was little, I have always loved to cook and live healthy. I have also been very interested in new ways to eat and cook clean. Having these interests has brought me to the conclusion that I would love to live a life that incorporated nutrition, exercise, and living healthy.


After I finished my associates degree in 2013, I moved to live with my husband in North Carolina. We lived there for two and a half years. It was a huge change for me since I had lived in Iowa my whole life. It was a struggle moving across the county and learning to live on our own. Staying active and coming up with new healthy recipes helped me a lot with all the changes. It was something that I was familiar with and made me feel more at home in our new environment.


My mom and I joined Big Oven together.  It is an app and website.  It is really fun to share what we are cooking and even shopping lists for the week.  It keeps us connected too.


We just moved to Belgium on July 14. We are very excited about the move and can't wait to get out and met others that are interested in living a healthy lifestyle. I also can't wait to go to the markets. They have a lot of fresh fruits, veggies and meats. It will be interesting seeing the difference between Europe and America.


I am very excited to get started with this new adventure and I love learning more about my true passion in life.


I am going to do a few things to get ready for this new adventure. Along with my blog, I am going to start connecting to others in the nutrition and healthy cooking world using Twitter (@brimariecua) and Facebook (brimariecua) .  I hope you follow me there too.


I also started writing down all the recipes that I create so I can work on my very own cookbook.  I will post these on my blog.  


Hope you enjoy!
