Hi! I’m Elizabeth (aka Liz). Thanks for visiting!

Let’s be REAL. It takes a village! Whether you’re a mama, a wife, or any other version of a human being, life is NOT meant to be done alone. This is my little space where i’ll be sharing life stuff (the good, the bad, and the varying shades ugly), things I’m learning, things i’m cooking, my passion for safer, cleaner beauty, & things i’m doing with my kiddos to help grow their imagination and learn while they’re doing it–all alongside my photography work!

My little family and I live in Dallas, TX (We moved from Southern CA late January). I’m a mama (to an insanely active and hilarious three-and-a-half Aria Meadow and a squishy, sweet two-year-old boy named Ezra, a wife (to my best friend David–8 years as of this October), a Beautycounter consultant, and a photographer. Oh, and I’m also a full-time employee at UPPERROOM Frisco. I enjoy expressing myself through writing and creating things, which you’ll see here (In case you’re curious, I went to school for Child Development and English, which may explain some of my posts ;)).

If you’re interested in either my husband or toddler-approved recipes, toddler-driven learning/playing activities, and real life reflections about the things i’m learning, failing at, being challenged by, or majorly kicking butt at, sign up to get notified when a new post goes up. My hope is to be real, encourage when I can, and just make this world seem like a smaller place by sharing my life. One of the biggest lies is that we’re alone, and I’ve found that when we share our stories, that lie is completely demolished. We weren’t made to live this life alone, so I hope that this little space I’ve created makes that reality a bit more tangible.
