Moving halfway across the country in 2011 was the inspiration for this blog. We started it to update family and friends living in Southern Indiana about our new life together in Maryland. We worked through a year of photos leading up to our wedding day, 30 goals leading up to my 30thbirthday, and a complete lifestyle change in the way that we cooked and worked out. We continued to share our love of travel and new places and then everything about our new adventure as parents.

As with anything, things change over time. We now live in Indiana and are the parents of a toddler and a baby due in July 2019.  This blog is now an outlet for me to continue to keep up with communication trends, connect with other moms, and explore new ways to use my sometimes overly creative and business-minded brain. When I am not changing diapers, cleaning up a mess or playing with my kids, I have found a passion in blogging about our everyday life, finding those confetti moments in the piles of laundry, dirty dishes, and scattered toys.  Our family continues to find time to explore new places, search for good food, dress in outrageous colors, and enjoy our time together no matter where we are in the world.

Grab a glass of wine, a cup of coffee or tea and follow along on our journey. Your comments make my day so don’t be afraid to leave some love.

A little bit more about me

I am a wife and mother to two little ones. I enjoy all things southern, coastal, and colorful. I love to curl up with a good book, sew a quilt every once in a while, fix healthy dinners for my family, and look for our next adventure. A former school communication administrator, I now love to find new ways to educate my littles and find unique ways to embrace the mess.
