About Me


I am a Colorado transplant born with a love for making a house a home. While I spent many years envying the “shiplapped” homes of the world on Pinterest, consumed with visual perfection, I realized that it’s the memories we make as a family that will last far longer than a perfectly decorated home. So my new life’s mission is preserving the memories I make with my family, right here on this blog.  

In 2004, I graduated college at NAU (Northern Arizona University) with a degree in Electronic Media and an emphasis in Journalism. From there, I went right into my career and became a director of the 6 and 10 pm newscasts at KNAZ in Flagstaff Arizona, where I met my husband and true best friend.  

In 2008 my world changed when KNAZ shut it’s doors while I was pregnant with our first child.  It was a very uncertain time for us, but we’ve persevered through the storms. I started up my freelance writing business and this blog while raising our boys. 

In 2017, we made a decision to leave our comfortable hometown of Flagstaff Arizona for more job security and to secure a future for our boys. That quest first lead us to the Western Slope of Colorado where we were blessed to explore so much of Colorado’s beauty and backcountry roads. We’ve visited places like Marble, Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Aspen, Rifle Falls and more. Opportunity landed in our direction and we relocated to Loveland/Fort Collins Colorado in late October of 2017. We are enjoying getting to know the area and can’t wait to explore all Northern Colorado has to offer. 

You’ll find me blogging about my latest home decor project, feeding a family on a budget, raising our boys and more. If you are a local NoCo business, hit me up! I’d love to work with you and help you promote your brand or business. I’ve recently launched a virtual assistant web and graphic design business.  Now that my kids are getting older, I’m itching to get the creative juices flowing and that includes helping small businesses with marketing strategies, writing, business photography and graphic design. 


My Boys!

  1. If you like mountain life and beach life, consider living in central North Carolina. Two hours east and you’re at the beach. Two hours west and you’re in the mountains. It’s gorgeous there.
