I love My husband, my kiddos and a great cup of coffee

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by!

I’ve been married to my husband, Jon, since 2006, only after dating since 1999. Yup, you read that right – since the 1900s ;). We enjoy raising our kids together, the outdoors, traveling and our humble lake house.

I’ve been a Stay at Home Mom since the birth of our son, Henry, since 2011. I took up blogging around 2012 as an attempt to document our lives and as a creative outlet.

Our daughter, Eliza, was born in 2013 and I continued to blog, create and share amongst the busy days of raising two kiddos.

We enjoyed many happy days together as a family of four and then to our surprise, I became pregnant in 2018 and in 2019 our daughter, Jane, was born.

We’re now a happy family of five, living our lives in a 1970s lake house ranch in southern Michigan. Join me as I share our day-to-day in the form of snacks, outdoor fun, travel, DIYs and crafts.
