my name is emma. 

i'm a 24 year old wife to the big guy and baby momma to our little girl.

i'm a believer in good manners, pumpkin candles, and sunday naps. i also believe that every woman should be able to make educated comments about a football game and that life is too short to do anything but what you love. 

i'm not afraid to be real, i'm not here to broadcast how pseudo-picture-perfect my life is, and i think anyone who spends $1,200 on shoes needs to get her head examined. 

i believe in living a happy life while dealing with hard things. we are all plagued with darkness in our lives, but we all have the choice to be brave and face our fears and own our imperfections. as my friend albus dumbledore once said, "happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light."

this blog is a creative manifestation of things that inspire me; from the petty to the pretty, the deep to the delicious, the bad to the beautiful.

nice to meet you. 

stay a while, why don't you?
