About The Blog

The idea for Living Rich began as a nagging idea that Kia had for a year or more- wanting to work with her best friend, Kelly, and write about the things that they often chatted about on their (almost) daily phone calls. When she finally presented her idea, Kelly was completely onboard and so began Living Rich Blog! We hope that in your time here, you see mirror images of your friendships in ours, that even though we may be all over the world, there’s some commonality in our pride and struggles of being women and simply human. This is YOUR space, too.

Welcome to our little community! Pull up a chair, grab a glass of wine and stay awhile.

About The Bloggers

selfie, living rich blog, rich where it counts, besties, bffs,

Both Kia and Kelly have military families, a flair for sarcasm and a love for Prince. Their friendship was founded on all the things they had in common, but it has grown because of their differences. In places one needs help, the other excels. As cliche’ as it all sounds, those differences allowed them a fresh perspective that keeps them grounded, gives clarity, pushes (and sometimes pulls) the other and opens them up to new experiences.

Except for Crossfit. Kelly keeps encouraging Kia to try it, but Crossfit and Crafts are where she draws the line.

Go ask your best friend these questions! Guaranteed you’ll learn something new about them. Kia had no idea that Kelly was a Law and Order junkie. Kelly couldn’t name Kia’s favorite song and they both hated each other’s favorite book.
