Hello there! My name is Michelle and I’m thrilled you stopped by my little corner of the internet. I live in Seattle, where I was born and raised, with my husband Mark and our two kids – Noah (5) and Lily (3).
When I’m not busy chauffeuring the kids around, you can find me cooking up new recipes in the kitchen, taking photos of our adventures, and sharing our stories through my blog and Instagram.
I started the blog shortly after having Noah. As an accountant on maternity leave, I was craving a creative outlet. I realized I loved writing about parenthood and everyday life. Seeing a community form through sharing our experiences motivated me to keep creating.
5 years later, this blog has become my passion project. I share insights on motherhood, family activities, home decor, gardening, budget-friendly kids fashion, and our favorite recipes. You’ll also find personal essays about my own journey through parenting, marriage, and finding a work-life balance.
Here are a few other fun facts about me:
- I can play 3 chords on the guitar and 1 song on the piano. Someday I’ll keep learning!
- My guilty pleasure is binging home renovation shows late at night when the kids are asleep.
- I’m a total bookworm – I love literary fiction, historical romances, and all things dystopian.
- I have an obsession with cozy home products like soft blankets, candles, and pillows. Our house is a maximalist’s dream!
- My ideal weekend involves hiking through the mountains as a family, then curling up by the fire pit at night for s’mores.
Thanks so much for being here! Make sure to subscribe and follow along on social media. I can’t wait to share more real, raw, and inspiring glimpses into our little world. I hope my stories, photos, and ideas bring some creativity into your day. Let’s navigate this journey together!
