I’m just a girl, sitting in front of a toddler, asking him not to throw his plate of food on the floor. At least that’s how most of my days begin and end.

Hi! I’m Emily. My tyrannical dictator  son calls me mom, my best friend calls me wife, and we make our home in Northern California. Before I became a mom I did all sorts of things; retail, accounting, full-time ministry, and for two long years helped new parents learn about and shop for all things baby. Writing has always been just a hobby, until now.

It’s my hope that the words on these pages will make you laugh, cry, eat good food and enjoy pretty things just a little bit more. I will share all my loves with you; baked goods, Octobers, coffee, planners, reality television (don’t judge lest ye be judged), and I’ll do my best to keep the complaining to a minimum.

So here’s to mom-ing the best way we know how: With lots of coffee and a whole lot of love.
