Hi! I’m Stephanie – I stay at home with my two kids in the Des Moines area and we LOVE getting outside. There are so many amazing places to get out and explore but it’s tricky to find them easily when the area is broken up into so many smaller cities and suburbs. I’m really excited about my interactive map that makes it easier to find parks and hiking trails in a specific area,  and also to eventually share different ideas and activities that get everyone outside!

I so hope that DSMOF will make it easier for individuals, families, and couples to enjoy the parks, trails, and playgrounds that this area has to offer – and that I can encourage you to spend some extra time outside soon! When I’m not out in nature, I’m crafting and sewing – which you can see over on my other site, Swoodson Says.
