About Me

About me……hmm. how to start? Well, I guess I will start with the reason for his blog. I love creating. Whether that be decorating our home, refurbishing furniture, re-creating recipes found on Pinterest (because I have no time to just be coming up with my own recipes!), or crafting, I wanted a place to share the things I love.

I am a mom πŸ™‚ I am raising the most special little boy who makes me infinitely happy. He has special needs, and let me tell you….experiencing things with him has made me so appreciative of every little thing that some people may take for granted. He has the best smile, and is the happiest kid I know. (He also still loves to cuddle with his mom, which is pretty much the best thing ever).

I am also engaged to the love of my life <3 We met October 2013, after only being acquainted through facebook and mutual friends. We got engaged April 25, 2015. (wedding planning coming soon!) He is truly my soulmate. We laugh, we talk, we love our life together.
