Welcome! I’m your new online bestie, Melissa and I created this space to share a dose of pretty and dose of real. I’m a wife, boy mom of 2, lifestyle blogger, freelance food & table stylist, white label content creator, motherhood filled with confidence cheerleader, and frequent Disney traveler.
The making of a full time blogger: In 2010 while working on a second degree at UCF I landed a dream job in downtown Orlando with a title of business development. With a passion for connecting others I dove into my new career and blogged about pretty parties on nights and weekends for fun and extra cash; the perfect combinations of both worlds. In 2014 we were blessed with the best news of our life, we were going to have a baby! The day we found out we were having our first child I knew I would be leaving my marketing job to pursue my dream- motherhood and entrepreneurship. I became a full time self employed mom in 2015, welcomed our second son in 2016, and have never lost sight of my passion to create a life full of celebrations and intention.

I’m an expert at confidence growth, Disney staycations, and food + table styling. I’m also an expert at drinking coffee and getting snacks for my toddlers.
I have a passion for chatting about motherhood. In 2016 I kicked postpartum depression in the face; I’m a trusted resource on battling depression and anxiety while working from home with littles. In short, I’m you’re biggest cheerleader.
I love motherhood and I’ve learned how to slow down, soak up the real life moments, and roll with it when things go far from the plan. I chat about living with intention and less stress to inspire work at home and stay at home moms to strive for more each and every day.
Motherhood is amazing and glorious and a blessing and so much more, but you’re more than mom too!
We celebrate life on the daily and here are just a few ways we do so frequently:
- Sweet treats to bake and share with everyone
- Experiencing the magic of Disney and travel as a family of 4
- Cheering on other women to boldly live their best life
