About Me

I’m Emily. I’m obsessed with bargain hunting, coordinating family outfits, and would live at Disney World if it was legal. I am a firm believer in always being open and transparent (total “over-sharer” right here!). I am truly blessed to be living my dream of being a mother. Parenting is my personal passion and I strive to raise my children up in the Lord and for them to look back on their childhoods’ with fond, fun memories. I truly believe that life is about the journey and I want to savor every second of it!

Even at a very young age I knew my goal was to be a wife and a stay at home mom. When Zach and I met as freshman in college we both had the exact same long term goals for our lives and it’s something that created a special bond between us. We married the summer prior to our last semester and have continued to learn and grow together for over a decade of marriage.

I knew I loved him back when we got married, but my love for Zach only continues to grow as I see him in his role as a father. He leads our family spiritually and works so, so hard to provide for our family financially. He loves me and our children with his entire being and truly puts our needs before his own. As an added bonus, he continues to get better looking with age!

We have been blessed with four wonderful, unique children. It has been such a joy to see them each develop their own personalities and character traits. We share a special bond with each child as an individual and it’s my goal as their mother to make sure they always know I love and support them unconditionally. I aim to parent them in the ways that best fit their personal needs and to raise them to be well-rounded, happy adults!

Kye was born in March of 2009. He is a typical first born who is a strong leader and always tries to do the right thing. He has quite the entrepreneurial spirit and is an awesome big brother to all of his siblings!

Britt was born in December 2011. She is a people person and very much an extrovert. She is always thinking of others and admires Kye while also being an awesome big sister.


Tess was born in July of 2014. She is pure joy and I always encourage everyone to have a third child! She wakes up happy and is always keeping up with her older siblings and is the most possessive of her younger brother.


Spear joined our family in December 2017. He was an answered prayer as we waited for him through the blessing of domestic adoption. He is that perfect missing peace that has made our family complete!


This blog is a place for me to share our family moments together, memories I want our children to always have written down and place to express my personal thoughts and reflections. I never predicted what a huge impact blogging would have on my life. The friendships and bonds I’ve made through this online community has been life-changing and I’m so thankful for the continued love and support from readers! I only hope to continue to gain new friends as I continue to share my parenting journey.
