Originally from St.Louis Missouri, but I have called Houston home for the last ten years. Blogging was a hobby I picked up a few years ago that eventually turned into a passion. I wanted a space that reflected the modern day mommy with authentic content. Although I love the neat blogs that are aesthetically pleaseing they sometimes seem to lack raw everyday momy content.

Did I forget that I’m also planning a wedding in between juggling soccer practice and swim lesson. So here goes nothing!
