About victoriaINkansas.

I moved to Virginia and started a blog, victoriaINvirginia. Then my bestie Rachel and I became obsessed with the internet. We started designing blogs, then found a spot on Etsy to sell sweet invitations and party supplies, joined twitter and learned twelve more ways to love the internet. We are obviously both now on Instagram as well. No one internets like Rachel, and I'm glad I got to learn from her. She is also a fabulous mom, friend and wife, and a frequent commenter on this blog.

Now I'm back in Kansas with my trusty sidekick Belle. She's a crime fighting dog I met one rainy Wednesday in October 2007, and we have joined forces to fight bunnies, squirrels and middle school students. She's thrilled to have a whole house to herself all day while I'm at work, and I never tire of seeing her smiley face waiting for me when I come home. Everyone should have a pit bull and border collie mix. If you don't have one, consider a career in urban education. That's how I got mine. And learned about what really matters in the world.

Belle and I don't do everything together. Things that I do that Belle cannot include traveling with my family and sharing meals with my mom, sister and now husband! Belle can't cook, bake, read, study or plan parties, but I like all those things. I have about thirteen BFFs, am a member of a book club that also functions as my social calendar. I love to be involved and currently volunteer with Junior League, BOTAR, and my church, Church of the Resurrection Downtown. Let me know if you have questions about anything, because you better believe I love to talk about it all.

In the summer of 2013, a dear friend thought it was a good idea to set me up with someone from work. Along with her husband, the four of us went on a date. While we didn't know right then, Kip and I knew soon enough that we won the lottery with that blind date. We planned and crafted a wedding that fit us perfectly and got married November 29, 2014. I love my husband. #teamLynch #kiptoria AND NOW our lives are filled with baby cuddles, diapers, and children's storybooks. Baby Rebecca Claire joined Team Lynch on February 17, 2016, and we love being parents. 

I hate the word edifying, but I do aspire to be a better human being because through Christ all things are possible.

Thanks for reading. Hope you enjoy the places, people, photos, the food and the baby. Oh, the baby.
