stay-at-home mom to a beautiful little girl and handsome baby boy, wife to an incredible husband, and daughter of a loving God. I freely admit that I am not the most creative or original person when it comes to crafting, decorating, organizing, cooking, etc...but I love being inspired by great ideas and putting my own spin on them!
