Meet The Blogger

Hi Friends! I'm glad you found me. 

My name is Kristen, and I'm in my early thirties. I'm married to Blake, and we got married in 2010! He's the best thing about me. Together we have three pugs, and are the favorite aunt and uncle to four amazing kiddos. 😉 We are childfree, and are starting our second chapter as we recently moved back to my hometown! In our first decade together we put down roots in an older home, and while that was great, in this next decade of our life we have decided to focus on our volunteer ministry and traveling as much as possible! So, we sold the house, totally downsized, payed off debts, and relocated. 

Well, a whole lot happened in between and that was documented here on this blog! I started sharing our life on the internet years ago with my first blog, and then this one, beginning in 2014. Of course, what I share has evolved over all that time, but nowadays you'll find a whole lot of homemaking, simple living tips, and my favorite things. I hope you follow along and say 'hi' in the comments! 👋

I'm A:

- Avid Reader

You'll find tons of books reviews here, but your best bet is to follow along on Instagram!

- Etsy Shop Owner

I sell vinyl decals, planning pintables, and custom gifts!

- Runner

So far I've done many many 5ks, a few 10ks, and two Half Marathons!

- J Crew Addict

Ask me where an article of clothing I'm wearing is from. 9 times out of 10, it's J Crew. 

- An Aspiring Minimalist

I don't think I'll ever own one spoon, one fork, and one knife, but I am absolutely dedicated to eliminating the unnecessary from my life and home!

Thanks so much for reading!
