My name is Kayla, and welcome to A Pinch of the Plains! I am a born and raised Oklahoma girl who enjoys cooking, shopping, decorating, crafting, traveling, renovating, and being outdoors! I have been happily married to my sweetheart and best friend, Taylor, for over 7 years, and we have a 3 year old son named Owen and a rambunctious golden retriever named Mika. After our son was born, I took a break from my career as a labor & delivery nurse to become a stay-at-home mommy which has been such a blessing in so many ways! We recently relocated from our home in western Oklahoma to the Ozarks of southern Missouri for my husband's career. We love the people here, all the outdoor activities the area provides, and we are (almost) finished fixing up a foreclosure to make it our dream home. I hope you enjoy trying a few ideas off my blog and experience "a pinch of the plains!"
