The Anchor Tattoo. |The Indie Chic Blog | xxkaseygruenewaldxx 

I have a lot of people ask me the “meaning” of my anchor wrist tattoo and honestly it is a very personal tattoo. 

Relationships never came easy for me and they always ended up a huge disaster but there has always been one that no matter what, it always worked out. 

It all began when we were kids in school and how life played out with the many heartbreaks and major downs, God led the way. 

We went through everything a couple could go through and every odd was against us other than the fact that we truly love one another. 

So two unplanned pregnancies and a lot of laughs and tears later we are going to Celebrate our 4th Wedding anniversary. 

It is CRAZY how happens like that and I honestly couldn’t imagine life with you, my Husband. I love you Jesse Gruenewald Forever and always. 

You’re my anchor keeping me in the Safest Haven. Xoxo

A Lisztomania- A need to listen to music all the time. 

No matter what I am doing I always have to have music playing like, always! When I am driving, cooking, cleaning, showering and even sometimes sleeping I have my pandora on but I do like to mix it up on my playlists. 


I listen to anything from Country, Indie artist, 90s alternative, Emo screamo, Rock so ya I listen to it all. 

Some of my favorite playlists are: 

Blue October, Cold, Indie Singer Songwriter, 90s alternative, Bonethugs n harmony, Lana Del Ray, Lady Gaga and so on. 


I literally could not function or stay on task without the Music Industry and the amazing artists who put their heart and soul into their songs as create beautiful lyrics.

January 7, Sunday Night Thoughts. 

1-07-2018

Today has been a lazy Sunday to say the least and I have had all day to sit around and think about my current situations… 

I tend to care far more in all situations than other people do. I love harder, hurt deeper, laugh harder, and try my best to heal others of their pain but sometimes I need someone to help me as well. 

Why do I allow myself to stay in such a lonely place in my own little world? Sometimes it gets very hard having to (basically) live daily life and parent alone. 

My husband works as much as he possibly can to give us everything that we want and need but really, Money can’t buy me Love. Money gets me nowhere when I am sleeping alone at night or just needing someone to talk to. 

Sometimes it is good to be alone, I know, but  it is also to be someone priority too. 

Emotions and words get tangled, social media, electronics and other things get in the way of the one thing we all want in life, to spend time with the ones that you love. 

I may be “annoying or needy” but it is just because when I have the chance, I want to be together. Tomorrow is never promised and I try to LOVE like there is no tomorrow. I do not want to leave this earth with out all of my loved ones knowing how much I love them. 

Maybe it’s the medication, I am unbalanced and emotional but when I feel, I feel deeply. I have always been this kind of person and I do not plan on changing. 

Life is hard, living is hard and Love is the hardest of all.

January 3rd, Putting away my Christmas decor and  Organizing my house.  

01-03-2018 


So even though I did NOT want to, I forced myself out of bed and organized all of my clothes… this literally took me like 4 hours to complete! 

There is a few things you guys should know about me right now

1. I hate laundry 

Laundry is the most annoying chore in my household mostly because we have a 9 y/o daughter who changes her clothes a million times a day. I have to wash clothes at least once a day to keep up with it and well, I’m lazy and 90% of the time I am not feeling good (thanks to Interstitial Cystitis) and well shit gets piled up. 

2. I can sleep my life away

When it comes to sleep I typically need like 18 hours of sleep daily. I have always been this way and I have always needed naps. Like I am not even joking. When I was in school (elementary- High school) as soon as I got home I would eat and then take a 2 hour nap. As an adult things didn’t change but whatever. Lol 

3. I love to cook but hate cleaning. 

I could spend all hours of my day in the kitchen putting together homemade meals and snacks for my family but when it comes to cleaning it up I’m like nah! I can not be the only one, right? 

So with this whole cleaning and organizing for me, I think it stinks but it is much needed in my house. We get so busy/lazy that shit just gets crammed everywhere… literally. So I am taking it day by day, room by room and completely organizing and cleaning my whole house. I think I have about a million bags worth of crap to throw out already and all I did was put away our Christmas decor and organizing our master bedroom closet. 

I guess we will see what I get myself into tomorrow in my house cleaning nightmare. 

Oh, Hello to my new followers I am so thrilled to see new faces! This blog keeps me going and each and every one of my viewers makes me so happy!!!!

Well guys the NyQuil is kicking in so I better stop typing. Haha 


Goodnight everyone,

January 1st – Starting a new  journey. 

Monday-1/01/2018 #storyofmylife

I would have to say one of the biggest obstacles I have struggled with has always been my eating problems and stress/anxiety disorder. I used to not care about myself or even thought that I was worth anything because I didn’t see it. I used to be in a vey dark and scary place but I am so happy to say that this New Year has began as Kasey being the Healthiest and happiest EVER! I reached a goal that has always been impossible. I could never maintain my weight (ever) and I had a hard time keeping my weight above 85lb. I am so  thankful to say that the first day of a New Year begins with my highest weight ever and I am no longer struggling! 


I see myself where I am today and all the hell I went through to be where I am today and I can smile. I know that every struggle and all of those mountains I had to climb was to reach the top and to keep going! I have grown as a Wife, Mother, and basic human being. I have a Husband who loves me, children who adore me and inner strength I never knew I had. 


Early 2017. 


Ending 2017. 

Sometime I find it crazy that the one thing that made me realize my strength is the one thing I thought would drag me down. After my diagnosis with Interstitial Cystitis it was like something clicked in my head and I realized that even though I have this life altering chronic syndrome, I am alive and ready to live. 

I will take this year, the last year of my 20s and I will be so much more than I ever believed I could. I know the whole “New Year, New Me” is a clique but really my goal this year is to “Heal” from the inside out. I will no longer run from my fears but rather take them head on. I will begin working on my Health and fitness like I never have and I am stoked to bring you all along on my journey! Follow my  Instagram for a full look into my life.  I can only imagine where I will be in a single year but wherever I go, I am taking you all with me. I will open up and share the good and the bad. I will share my whole experience of 2018 with all of my viewers and I hope you all will stick along for the ride. Cheers to New Years, let’s make the best of 2018!

New Years is coming! Recap of my 2017 & my 2018 Goals revealed. 

Follow me

Hello everyone and how excited are we to be at the brink of a new year!!!! I know I have some pretty good and realistic goals for 2018. I will take my goals step by step bug I am more than excited to push myself and reach every goal! 

A quick recap of my 2017 

I took time off of working (cashiering) to focus on myself, my health and my little family and it was the best decision I could have made. Due to endless doctor visits, ER stays and misdiagnosis I finally got my answer, I have a bladder syndrome called Interstitial Cystitis. Since then  I have been able to rest on my worst days, cook dinner, and spent time with everyone that I love the most. I will always be forever thankful for my husband for helping me get to where I am today. 


I decided to begin blogging and it quickly led me to a passion and dream I didn’t even know I had! Now, I am officially a new Photographer and I am so blessed to see everyone who likes my photos and is cheering me on! Everything fell into place so quickly and I am just so excited to keep going forward. 


I went on a beautiful Family Vacation to Red River, New Mexico where we learned how to ski and spend our first day in a real “snowy day” magical wonderland! View my previous posts to view my take on our Vacation. 


I found who I am as a individual and I am learning to love myself. I spent my whole life in a horrible place mentally and I am so happy that I made the choices that I did to get me to where I am today. I am currently at the healthiest place I have ever been and I am so thrilled to be at the highest weight (nonprengnancy) and I have a clear, cheerful mind! 

  1. Focus on my Physical and mental health and achieve goals that used to be impossible.
  2. Hobbies- crafting, creative things, drawing etc. 
  3. Be myself 100% and not care what others think 
  4. Read read read 
  5. Practice with makeup 3 times a week 
  6. Up my Instagram content. 
  7. Let go of the past and all the painful memories 
  8. Love more. 
  9. Be a better wife/ mother. 
  10. Let go of negative people and hold on to those who support me. 

I am so excited for  a New Year and all of the possibilities that we have in front of us all. I hope everyone is looking forward to goals no matter how big or small! I would love to chat with you all and hear what you have as goals as well! I will be back very soon! 

New Photography, vlogs and blogs coming very soon. I can not wait to show you all what I have planned for 2018! Cheers

Gift wrapping sick as… well… you know! 

Hey everyone, is it just me or is Christmas sneaking up way too fast! My husband and I bit the bullet yesterday and went Christmas shopping so that leaves me with 24 hours to wrap them all while I have the time! 

Tomorrow the kids get out of school early and I have sessions booked all weekend so lets see if I survive! I woke up yesterday feeling horrible and it isn’t over yet, it is just getting started unfortunately. 

Anywho, I have always just rushed wrapping gifts and they would come out horrible. This year I wanted my personality to show through my gift wrapping so I went simple, indie/ Boho and adorable! 


A few cute name tags, ribbon and simple wrapping paper later this is how they turned out! I don’t know about you but I LOVE it!!!!! Although we didn’t go “all out” like we usually do for our children due to an amazing and much needed vacation, I think they will still be so happy! 


The only thing that kind of ruined my wrapping was the scotch tape…. I didn’t get the clear kind ( ugh I know) but all in all I think they are so cute! I can not wait to finish wrapping gifts and for it to be Christmas! 


New Photography will be up in a few days and I am so excited to have so many bookings. I feel like this is the best place I have been in my life and I am not afraid to be who I am and let my personality shine through everything I do. 

Comments are more than welcome and please give this a like if you enjoyed it! I am cleaning then back to bed for this sick momma! If you haven’t already, be sure to follow my Instagram and be sure to send me a message and tell me you are from WordPress so we can connect and get to know one another.
