Hi there! I’m a stay-at-home mom, photographer, and DIY enthusiast who loves to create and connect with other like-minded moms. I started blogging in 2016 as a way to document my journey as a new mom and to share my passions with others. I quickly discovered that blogging was my creative outlet and a way to connect with other moms who were also trying to balance motherhood with their own interests and passions.
Now, as a mom of two young children ( & a third on the way!!), I continue to blog as a way to document my family’s adventures, share my photography business and DIY projects. Most importantly though I want to build a community that offers support and encouragement to other moms who may be struggling to find their joy and follow their passions in this season of life. I believe that motherhood can be both challenging and rewarding, and I hope to inspire other moms to embrace their creativity and to find the joy and fulfillment that comes from pursuing their own dreams and passions at the same time! It took e a long time to realize that I could do all the things, wear all the hats I dreamt of. I don’t have to be just mom, I can be a blogger, a photographer chasing my dreams for me and still be the best mom to them. If anything I learned that following my dreams and hobbies make me a better mother to them. Thank you for joining me on this journey and I can’t wait to get to know each other!

It all started in 2016
I was 21 and freshly graduated from college and starting my dream job, as a house parent to 6 children in foster care.
I went from college straight to motherhood. In an very unique way. My passion has always been working with children in foster care. I got a in depth experience looking at the implications of sensory integration & trauma-informed care on dysregulated behavior in children who have experienced trauma. Shortly after starting here I got into a car accident that redirected the trajectory of my life. I was in between of trying to figure out my next move in life when I found out I was already 5 months with our little miracle baby, Everson. From there my life, once again switch to a completely new path- being a stay at home mom. I decided to stop mid-semester while getting my masters in social work to focus on this very new and exciting journey of motherhood. For as long as I dreamed of being a stay at home mom I quickly realized I was still feeling like I was missing something. I just didn’t anticipate how becoming a mother would completely rock your identity as an individual. I was constantly putting everyone else first, felt isolated, stagnant and like I just had no creative or professional outlet. I realized that there were so many more things that I wanted to explore and accomplish, in addition to being a stay at home mom. That is when I decided to create my blog. Creating this space has been such a cool way to give me a little something of my own. I have been able to connect with people, explore and share my passions and have a creative freedom from home! Along the way of trying to balance mom-life with time for myself I have found a passion in so many other things like: DIY, photography and helping others reach their goals. I started a side business helping others with the marketing for their small business, then I started sharing more of my DIY & helping others design spaces in their home, and then finally I started my own photography business. I am so excited to share my experiences through pregnancy, being a mama, DIYer, business owner, photographer, blogger and just life in general! Thanks for being here and I can’t wait to help you reach your dreams or just be here to cheer you on!
