Welcome to The Yooper Girl! I’m Leigha. I am a senior in high school and live in the beautiful U.P., the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. This blog is my place to share the random things that come to my mind whether that be recipes, travels, and everything in between.
I love living an active life. I’ve run three half marathons with plans for more and hopefully a marathon someday as well! I also play on my school basketball team and run track.
I love food. I’ve found that by eating nutritious foods that my body feels and performs the best. I have struggled with disordered eating in the past and am proud to say that I have made a full recovery. I eat a mostly plant based diet but don’t follow any strict rules.
I love taking pictures. A few years ago I spent my life savings on a dSLR camera (Canon Rebel T3i!) and it was the best purchase I ever made. Capturing precious moments will just never get old.
And here are a few more pictures of me! I have such a blessed life and want to experience all that’s possible.
Thank you so much for coming to The Yooper Girl. I blog because I love to share pieces of my life and creating recipes and meeting all of you incredible people. I truly can not imagine my life without this!
