Writing about yourself is weird but here goes nothing. . . .

I’m Sam Benkert, formerly known as Sam Morreal. I created this blog for a few reasons. First, I have a terrible, awful, no-good memory. I want this blog to spark my memory when I look back. Second, we’re far from family and everyday life passes us by so fast that it’s hard for everyone to keep up. Third, I’m not much of a writer but I love to create things so I am using this little corner of the internet as an outlet. Last, I just wanted to.

I’m a 22 year-old college student attending East Carolina University (as a distance education student) studying business. I currently live in the beautiful and charming city of  Charlottesville, Virginia. I am married to my best friend, Kurt and we have two very large and rambunctious dogs, Lola and Zoey. I was born and raised in SW Florida.

If you’re curious or nosy, want to sympathize with me, learn something, read about positivity and happiness, get my opinions on books, find out what my favorite things are, or see pictures of everyday life adventures, then this is the blog for you.
