I’m a thirty-something lover of my baby boys, husband and pets. I enjoy DIY projects, food, and adventure. I am from Northern California and now live in Woodinville, a suburb outside of Seattle, and love calling the PNW home. I spend my time chasing my babies, daydreaming about renovating our home, eating, cooking, laughing with friends and family, and enjoying the great outdoors.

I love to create anything & everything
I am a serial planner and list maker
I am a procrastinator
I love QT with friends and family
I am happily married to a wonderful man
I am mama to two incredible boys
I talk to my dogs like they’re humans
I am super thrifty and love a good deal
Top 3 favorite foods are cheese, cookies and sushi–not together
I am glad to be writing again
I really love to sing and dance but am substantially better at the latter


Life is too short to wait for all your ducks to be in a row, in order to really start living. So many of us think, “I just need to lose another 5 lbs, THEN I’m going shopping”, or “I can’t afford a new living room set until I get a bonus from work”. Really living is about making the best with what you’ve got and getting a little creative.  It’s about making the most of what you already have, reinventing the boring, repairing the broken, and rejuvenating your soul along the way. Be inspired and let your creative side guide you. Indulge sometimes, but be happy with what you have and make it work. Inspiration is all around you, so allow it to lead the way and you’ll find that living an inspired life is about living a beautiful life, a beautiful life according to your standards, and no one else’s. Money can definitely buy gorgeous things, but creativity can build gorgeous AND unique things.

I am so happy that you stopped by, and I hope you’ll stay a while.
