About Me

Hi! I am sincerely humbled that you are reading this page. Because I am just a typical, normal girl, living a pretty typical, normal life.

This blog officially began back at the end of grad school as Andrew and I were moving back to Huntsville, Alabama and building our house. It began as a way to share the building process with our family and friends.

However, once the house was built and we were settled, the blog started gathering dust-bunnies about as fast as our baseboards.

Then in 2012 we decided to start a family and our lives became about a million times busier and at least a little more interesting. The primary purpose behind the labor of love that is blogging regularly is to document our family's days, weeks and months. The big events and the everyday. A fantastic by-product is the fact that it allows me to virtually stay connected with family, friends and a community of bloggers.

I am wife to Andrew, the love of my life. I am mom to Perry, our precious little boy that is growing up entirely too fast right before our eyes. I love my Jesus and it is my daily prayer that he is lifted up and glorified by my life, my family and this blog.


I am type-A and continue to learn daily that I don't really have it all together and that what is important is not how much my human hands can do, but how big my God is. I try to do it all (which really means that I try to do too much...a fact my husband points out frequently), I balance (or try to) working full-time and doing all those fun things stay at home mommies do (like laundry and dishes and crafts and play dates).

I love disney, crafting, coffee, and shopping. I love genetics, and talking to people about genetics. I am convinced I have the best job in the world. I really dislike cooking regularly. But hosting a good party? Yes, that is where my happy place is.

"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Romans 15:13
