I’m mandy. I married Corey in 2014, and we welcomed our rainbow baby, Grace, in November of 2017. We moved into our forever home early last year and I’m constantly creating projects where there are none! I’m navigating being a first-time mom, and still trying to get used to how life has slowed down with a little one… while trying to keep my relationship with Jesus, marriage, our house, and my social life in tact. I have fallen in love with working out but have struggled with body image and diet for years — it’s an endless battle that I’m not sure I’ll ever win, but I sure am trying!
What I love so much about this blog is that it has existed for years. When I started it, I was fresh out of college, newly-wed, trying to figure out where I wanted to take my career. I wanted a safe place to vent and write down my thoughts and convictions. Since then, we’ve gone through challenges that are still shaping me. I’ve traveled to Europe and across the states through my career in advertising and marketing – working with B2B and Ecommerce clients on goals that were different but the same at the end of the day – accustomed to a fast-paced work environment, always feeling tired. Now things have slowed down immensely and I’m a stay at home mom, still always tired.
Today, this blog is still a place to write down my thoughts, but it’s also a place to celebrate my favorite people and parts of life… God, family, friends, finding balance, and home decor… hopefully making someone’s day along the way.
