Hi everyone, I'm Emily and I’m so excited to have you here!
Born and raised in Houston, I've recently moved back from Northeast Alabama with my husband, toddler and pets. Growing up I developed a great love of coordinating, organizing and designing events, which led me to a career working as a professional event planner. As I got older and moved out on my own, moved again, again and again, I discovered the only thing I enjoyed more than bringing an event to life, was falling in love with my home and helping others do the same.
Like many of you I’ve spent countless hours watching HGTV, reading magazines, and browsing Pinterest. I've created boards for every aspect of home life that I can think of, organizing ideas and inspiration for what I want my home, dining room, dinner party menus (and more!) to look like… someday. Someday, if I'm lucky... lucky enough to win the lottery (ha!). I had grand, picture perfect pins of my dreams spread out across my computer screen.
Considering I don't even play the lottery, those dreams I've carefully laid out on Pinterest will likely always be out of reach. But what if they don't have to be? What if I decided to stop waiting for THAT house, THAT dining room and THAT kitchen. What if I decided to live my "someday dreams" in my "today life"? From creating the type of spaces I swooned at online, to hosting the dinner party I'd been planning in my head for someday, I decided it was time. Time to stop dreaming of tomorrow and make the most of today. It was time to stop pinning, and start living.
We all know that "comparison is the thief of joy", but practicing that is easier said than done. This has been, and continues to be, a journey of patience and gratitude. A journey that I'm excited to share in hopes that it will inspire you to do the same. Thank you for coming along for the ride, I can't wait to create beautiful things with you!
