About Me

I never know what to say in these areas so I’ll keep it short and sweet:

I grew up in Richardson, went to Plano East, and graduated from Texas A&M with a bachelors in Landscape Architecture in 2006. Married Jason (we were high school sweethearts), moved to Austin (which we LOVE!) and worked for a Landscape Architecture Firm until June of 2009 when my son, Jude, was born. I started working part-time for a non-profit, The Trail Foundation in the fall of 2010 as a landscape architect, project manager and general jack-of-all-trades. I started this blog back in May of 2008 because I have a huge desire to share the things I experience in life, whether they are recipes, art, crafty endeavors, web design, sustainable living, parenting, or my thoughts on spirituality. The blog also helps me organize my thoughts and endeavors so that I can revisit them at any given point in my life.

I love Christ, my husband – Jason, my son – Jude, my family, my friends, my church, people, my cat- Malachi, the environment, sustainability, Austin, art, music, reading, cooking, eating, creativity, sewing, crocheting, knitting, web design, good design, making homemade things, selflessness, simplicity, organization, the color green and innovative ideas. I also have an unhealthy obsession with Nutella.

We sometimes use a Canon 40D to take the photos you see on the site but we are more frequently taking and editing photos on our iPhones.
