Hi, I'm Addie!

I'm a midwest girl with more ambition than I know what to do with! My husband and I currently live in Minnesota and we have two dogs and two cats!  I became an entrepreneur at the age of 17 so my life has been everything but average! My venture started out in the cupcake industry and now I'm living out another dream in the real estate world! 

My favorite things include relaxing on the porch with a cup of coffee, or a glass of Moscato (depending on the time of day), getting my exercise in by wandering my big three: TJ Maxx, Target and Hobby Lobby, baking and experimenting with new recipes, and spending time with my family at our cabin! 

When I initially transitioned careers from owning bakeries to real estate, I felt like a piece of me was missing. Enter "The Sweet Life." This concept brought a spark back to my life because cupcakes have been my world for nine years and then all of a sudden they weren't! Now I get to have sweets back, share my story and hopefully inspire other young/female entrepreneurs and also have an outlet for my creativity!  Here on "The Sweet Life" you'll find different aspects of my life including glimpses into the real estate industry, my favorite recipes, along with places I'm currently traveling, my favorite places to shop or my current favorite beauty items! My life is anything but perfect, but it sure is sweet 💜 Thanks for being here! And, if there's anything I can help you with, whether it's a recipe, finding the perfect dress for that event you spaced on, or finding your new home, please don't hesitate to reach out! I'm happy to help in any way I can!
