Hello!

Writing was always my worst subject in school & I am absolutely terrible at spelling. Just when I thought my insecurities got the best of me, I discovered I have a new found freedom in writing. It is a way that I can express the thoughts circling in my head, the emotions stirring in my heart, & my experiences as they unfold. I have been wanting to create a place where I can share these words in hopes that they offer encouragement, connection, and community... so here we are!!   

What you will find here in this space are a few of my favorite things! I am excited to share with you my life with my daughter & husband, my passion turned business, and a little bit of everything in between. I like to describe my journey as, "perfectly imperfect in grace."

"Life does not have to be perfect to be wonderful." -Annette Funicello

 

HONEST MAMA MOMENTS

I am a mama to a beautiful, determined little girl who was born with Cerebral Palsy. Here you’ll find raw moments & encounters as I experience living out this life as a special needs mom.

 

Beautycounter

I didn't care about the ingredients in the products I was using until after my daughter was born. As I learned more about the current cosmetic industry, I knew I needed a change. I joined the Beautycounter movement because I am passionate about getting safer products into everyone’s hands.

MY FAMILY

As a wife to a fireman, owner of my own business, and mom of a differently abled child, I have found that challenges are unavoidable and life can be hard. On this journey I am learning how to grow in grace and find joy in the little things.
