Hey there! I’m Emily. Wife. Mom of 3. In 2015 I traded my career and life in the corporate world to be home with my kids. This blog was born out of my desire to create and write. My desire is to use it to build a platform for my next career (writing). I’m addicted to Diet Coke and DIY projects. A day spent scouring thrift stores for treasures or working on home projects and my heart is happy.

I love my little family. Our kids really keep us on our toes. I try my best to focus on quality of life and making memories. However, life at our house is crazy and far from perfect. Instead of portraying perfection (that’s the control freak, worry about what other people think part of me), I’m opening a window to our reality.

Last Christmas (2015), we unexpectedly lost our oldest son. Cameron was 7. Our hearts are forever broken! He was the sweetest, most amazing little boy. I miss him terribly every day. We now do our best to move forward, one moment at a time. Our new normal sucks!

If you’re looking for a place filled with love, sarcasm, real life, a little humor and no judgement, you’ve come to the right place. Parenting is hard! Life can be hard. We’re doing our best to survive and move forward.

Enjoy! Thanks for stopping by.
