One of the things on my list for 2019 is to start incorporating some more home content onto the blog. I clearly love fashion but I equally love styling our home and I apply the same principals to home as I do fashion — mixing highs and lows. I thought now would be the perfect time to show you our festive holiday home decor with Stage Stores.
Well there it is. I’ve said it. FULL TIME BLOGGER. This transition took place a few months ago but I was on the fence when I would officially tell you all. I was going to announce this after the New Year but my heart has been bursting lately with so much goodness and I’m in that holiday spirit so I decided now is the time to stand on the rooftops and yell it. I’m going to share all about my blogging journey and also give some of my own advice on the top 5 things to know to become a full time blogger. Warning this will be a VERY long post but it’s a monumental change in my life and no few words can possibly tell the story of how this came to life.
*A huge chapter in our life came to an end today. To celebrate our 5 1/2 years at daycare I am sharing my story of what being a daycare mom was like for me.

Sadly, the photos just don’t do it justice at all but in person it really does wow you especially if you saw the before!Read More
If you are reading this then you have discovered my blog and have taken the time to come check it out and for that I have to say thank you! This is hands down the scariest thing I have ever done. Most people have a passion, a hobby they love. Hate to admit it but one of mine is shopping. I know on the surface that sounds so tacky and cliché. But truly I do. I love putting outfits together on a budget. It’s like a high for me to put something together that I truly love and know I did it for the look for less. I do it for myself and for Summer (Erik on the other hand…well let’s just say he tends to splurge on his clothes). I love when friends come to me for shopping or outfit advice. I love scrolling through Instagram and getting inspired by other fashion lovers. For so long I’ve wanted to share my great finds, my great outfits with others, but so much has held me back.
