Hi, Im Kait!

I’m a daughter of the King, wife & mama of 4 with a serious addiction to coffee and a deep passion for all things home, food & beauty!

I’m married to my better half (cheesy i know)! We recently built our cute little home out in the country. I like to call it our own little slice of heaven here in the mitten state! Since we are avid DIYer’s, we did most of the work ourselves. I was 8 months pregnant painting our home from top to bottom! There’s just something about putting a little sweat equity into your home that gives you a deeper appreciation for it. Although its been a couple years, the project list didn’t end there…just ask my poor hubby ;)! We continuously strive to make this house feel like a home and i’m excited to share it with you!

My passion for decorating came at a young age. When i was 10 I designed my entire bedroom from the lime green walls to the periwinkle carpet…it was the bomb dot com, but I still cant believe my parents let me do that! That passion continued to blossom when I bought my first home at the ripe age of 18! I was a young mom at the time and barely getting by, but I was determined to find ways to decorate on a budget. I would visit all the local antique stores finding anything I could re purpose or reuse. If I could create something for less money I wouldn’t buy it, i’d make it! Those characteristics have turned me into the bargain shopper that I am today! I believe your home should be a reflection of you, your happy place to unwind & feel a sense of pride when you look around, but that doesn’t mean you have to break the bank to do so!

Not only did buying a home at a young age give me an appreciation for decorating, it forced me to learn how to cook! It was my goal to make sure my family had healthy home cooked meals on the table everyday. It quickly became a passion of mine and from that point on, I fell in love with baking, trying new recipes, making them my own and sharing them with others. With as busy as our lives are today, I believe its so important for families to sit and enjoy a meal together. The best memories are made at the table!

I started this blog as a creative outlet for me. A place to share DIY’s, our home, recipes, beauty & motherhood…because lets be honest, mommin’ ain’t easy ladies! I hope you leave feeling inspired!

I also share bits of our life over on Instagram, so lets connect!

Thanks for stopping by!
