About Me

My name is Autumn and welcome to my blog! 
This blog is a mix of things - life, my journey through motherhood, and my creative endevors along the way. You'll hear me talk about my family quite a bit because I love them so much!

I am absolutely in love with this man.

This is my hubby Todd. We've been married for 5 years. He is my absolute best friend and has been from the time we've met. He is such an amazing man and I am so blessed that I get to journey through life with him.

And then there is this little man:

This is Brecken. He is a hilarious, adventurous, daring, and adorable two-year-old. Most days he keeps me on my toes being a typical toddler. He is developing quite the personality and it is fun to see all the new things he is learning. I absolutely love being his mommy and could not imagine life without his precious little smile and chocolate brown eyes.

And here is the newest addition to our family:


This is Sienna Reese born on Oct. 1. I just can't get enough of her sweetness, snuggles and beauty. I have discovered that having a girl can be dangerous with all the cute clothes and headbands.



A little more about me:
  • I am a stay-at-home mom and love it. 
  • I am a Christ-Follower and am constantly trying to strengthen my relationship with the Lord.
  • I was born and raised in the good ole' state of Iowa, and no I did not grow up on a farm. I've heard alot of Iowa jokes, but really it is not that bad of a state.
  • I attended Northwestern College in St. Paul, MN and received a degree in Communications and Bible. That's where I met Todd and we married soon after we were done with college.
  • My profession before I was a mom was working at a hotel as a catering manager. I am passionate about planning and executing events, and actually do special events part-time for a preschool. 
  • I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, shopping for a good deal, photography, decorating, and being creative. 
Sometimes it is really easy to feel inadequate and like I am not knowledgeable about anything I am writing about. I may not be a expert in a subject, but maybe something I write may be a help to someone or inspire them with a new idea. I have gotten a TON of ideas from reading blogs - decorating ideas, fashion inspiration, recipes, and domestic advice. My hope is that my blog can give you encouragement or ideas to improve your life in some way.
