Please tell us a little about yourself.

I’m a wife and a mother of two beautiful little girls. I love the outdoors and am a pretty outgoing person, always laughing!

Why did you decide to start a blog? What do you enjoy about blogging?

From the time I was a little girl I’ve always loved to write, I can’t even tell you how many diaries and notebooks I have laying around my house lol! Writing for me is a passion, so after I had my second born I was home a lot and would always be looking for ways to kill some time while the baby napped. I love organizing the house, cooking, doing crafts at the table and so much more and thought I could be sharing  some pretty cool ideas and tips with the world and so began my journey as a blogger.

What is your favorite type of flooring and why?

For me it all depends, but If I had to choose just one flooring type it would probably be hardwood because they add a very natural and rustic touch to a house. Hardwood floors also really open up a room and almost make it look bigger — in my opinion.

Do you follow any other blogs for inspiration?  If so, which ones?

There’s so many, but to name a few..

Can you explain a recent project or post you’ve been working on?

I’ve just finished a blog post called “Easy to make party centerpieces”   This idea came up when my husband and I were trying to figure out decorations for our youngest daughters first birthday party.
