Welcome welcome! I’m Danielle, most people call me Dani. I’m a twenty-something East Coast transplant to the Midwest. I grew up in Virginia and Maryland, and moved to Kansas City in 2014 for work. I’m now settled in on the Kansas side and absolutely love it here.

I am married to an amazing man named Jake. He is a small business owner and is incredibly supportive of all things I do. We both love to rock climb, which is how we met. We got engaged on Christmas Eve, you can read the full story here.

We have two adorable fur babies named Oliver and Finnigan (Finn). Oliver is a Mini Australian Shepherd and Finn is a Toy Australian Shepherd and I’m sure you’ll see them sneak into my pictures from time to time.

I make my relationship with God a big priority in my life and aim to live the way I believe He would want me to. This is also a big reason why I’m a fan of modernly modest clothing!

I think modesty means different things to different people, and my personal definition is just to keep the important things covered for my own comfort and dress like a lady.

My blog is one of my favorite things in the world, and I strive to be as authentic as possible. I only share things I actually use and love, and recommend to others.

If you’re a blogger or entrepreneur, too, please come join my Facebook Group! I love and value every single person that takes this journey with me. And my dream as a blogger is to help other people that are in the shoes that I’ve been in to get their blog off the ground and grow it quickly. I understand how overwhelming it is to not only get your site started but to also grow it and gain traction.

I created Grow Your Influence as a way to get you started on the right foot, and I am a firm believer that helping others doesn’t hurt you at all, but instead lets you grow in new ways. It’s not a competition. It’s about supporting each other and lifting one another up!

I also developed an e-course to help bloggers like myself Grow their Influence across all of the main platforms. You can learn more about that course here.

You can email me at thompsondanir@gmail.com should you have questions about anything, or just wanna chat and say hi. Make sure to follow all of the social media pages and subscribe to the email list to get freebies and special discounts to my e-courses!

  • Comfy casual for errands is my style 👌🏻 also I love this hat because on the days I don’t feel like doing anything with my hair, hats are a lifesaver. And dry shampoo 😂. I put a poll up on my stories yesterday asking if you guys want to see a series of posts on #cozyminimalism and the answer was an overwhelming yes! I’ve already started working on them and will start posting next week so stay tuned!! In the mean time, check out my post on 12 ways you’re wasting money on clothes and how to stop. We’re all guilty of it 🤷🏻‍♀️. Click the link in my profile to read!  http://liketk.it/2zSzn #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • Fun fact day about my wonderful husband: Jake has this uncanny ability to make me smile and laugh even when I’m sick. I was in bed all weekend but somehow he managed to still make me feel better. 
He is the king of puns and loves to make corny jokes. I’m talking real bad dad jokes. But I think they’re hilarious, and his enthusiasm and the fact that HE finds them so funny is the best part.

It’s the little things like this that showed me he was my perfect person. That and he told me he was going to marry me after 3 weeks of dating 😂🤷🏻‍♀️ which also made my laugh at the time but 9 months later he was down on one knee! 
That was also the same day I tried to break up with him because I had just gotten out of a bad relationship and I was starting to like him way too much too soon. I told him I wasn’t ready for another relationship and he literally said “are you trying to break up with me? ...no. We’re gonna get married.” I busted out laughing but he was so serious.
Even then, I could tell he really believed that. Now 4 months into our marriage he still shows me every day he wants to be married to me ❤️👰🏻🤵🏻 We have to appreciate the little things like the bad jokes because the effort behind them is how people say “I love you” in other ways. Happy Monday 💕#marriedlife💍 #marriagegoals
