I live in a little apartment in the same small town I’ve lived in my entire life – there’s a bakery and a bowling alley within walking distance and I’m a-okay with that. I’m a lifetime crafter that thinks that everyone can and should take the time to make things every now and then. I love spending my days hiking, taking photos, and just being with friends and family. Most importantly I’m thankful to live a life being known and loved by my creator and hope to live a life that will make him and his perfect love known.
I live in the countryside with my husband, Mike, and our three boys, Lincoln, Malacai and Levi. Our life is filled with lots of noise, laughter, cups of coffee, endless legos to step on, goldfish & root beer, and trying to catch up on that never-ending to-do list! I am saved by His grace and pursuing His love. I love coffee, a lot. I love to bake. I love white and natural wood, especially together. I love to laugh. I love sleeping. I love to play with my food, mostly while taking photos of it. I love camping and road trips with my love. I love reading. I love spending time with my family. I love Mexican food. And pizza. And donuts. Always donuts. I’m very indecisive. I have surprisingly developed a love for running. I am happiest at home.
I met my bearded mister when I was 17 years old. He still makes me smile every day. We have three little ones who keep us running, laughing and, more often than not, prevent us from sleeping. I believe in a grace filled and loving God. Things that brighten my day: pour over coffee, pinterest, knitting, brussels sprouts, traveling, hiking, camping and anything in the great outdoors.
