Hey! Welcome to this little corner and peek into this crazy, messy, beautiful and blessed life of ours. I’m Melanie – the heart behind this blog. I’m wife to my hubby, Kenny who is a Marine Vet and currently stationed over 1200 miles away. My life is ran by a tiny army that we created and they call me, “mom, mommy, mama”. They are also the best things I’ve ever done and I’m so thankful they are mine. Brayden is 18, Kamden is 16, Rosie is 6, Everly is 2, and we welcomed our very unexpected but very loved mic drop baby boy, Daxton Rhett, in July! Yes, we have a large age gap (I get asked this a lot;))! We had 5 years of secondary infertility when trying to get pregnant with Rosie. There will be a whole blog series on this:)
I’m a former RN, stay/work at home mama now. I love health, wellness, DIY, crafty things, kids and mama fashion, making the little things memorable and special. I mean, I’m basically a combination of a Pinterest and an Amazon Prime mom. There is no in between! Ha! Oh, but I’m a Target mom all day every day!
We live in a small town in Southern IL but will be relocating soon. All the emotions about this! This is going to be such a change for our family and honestly, I’m just trusting the Lord and whatever this new journey is that He has planned for our family. Can’t wait to bring you along!
