Purpose

This is a blog where I curate my life’s beautiful moments.

Finding those special moments in the midst of a busy day-to-day family life, it’s here where I share my journey through personal stories…both appreciating and learning from little life lessons, through the eyes of a parent, a wife, a daughter, a sister and a friend. It is often through the memories of my past that I try to navigate being a parent & understand creating the best childhood moments for my kids...today.

Along with personal stories, I share simple recipes, home decorating/design and other hand made joys all in the hopes to show how to simplify life (just a little)…to make more time to embrace the beauty of life happening in front of me right now.
