Hi y’all. I’m a glass-half-full kind of gal who lives in yoga pants and is fueled by Jesus, coffee, and laughing until it hurts. I am wife to a handsome preacher & counselor and we’re working on our fifth year of marriage. I’m mom to my sweet Annie girl who yes, is a mini-me of her father and to Ollie who, so far, looks more like me. I am a publicist and owner of my own communications agency and I’m learning to lean in to the whole working mama thing and run from any sort of mom guilt.
I started blogging in early 2010 as a way to document the adventures of navigating my 20s – career, dating, fun trips, friendship advice and random tales because I thought I knew all the things. Ten years + career highs, heartbreaks, growing pains, one wedding, two babies, several job changes and even more houses later I happily admit that I in fact do NOT know all the things. What I DO know is that God has called us to live an abundant life, so I chase the lovely in every moment.
My goal for this space is to brighten your day and make it lovelier. Whether it’s a post to help strengthen your faith, or how to navigate being a wife or mom, celebrating your friends or family (I adore a good party), or feeding your people with some yummy recipes I’ve tried and loved – I desperately want to help you focus on the good stuff.
So welcome, friend – I’m glad you stopped by. Grab (another) cup of coffee and stay a while.
