I'm a left-handed, middle-ish child and I tend to channel Monica Geller on a fairly regular basis. I have been married to my handsome husband, Jay, for the past 8+ years. Originally from the Northwest, we are presently residing in a cozy duplex in Southern California. I currently divide my time between adventures in mommyhood, making a lot of lists, pretending to be a good cook, finding new crafts to tackle during nap-time, cleaning up obsessively after my husband, and striving for simplicity.
My daughter, Eisley, is three—and love her to bits and pieces. Sporadic tantrums and eternally-smudged coffee table aside, mommyhood is my new favorite thing. I may or may not want another baby, like, tomorrow.
I am happiest spending a calm, comfortable day with my husband and daughter. I am creative to my very core. I'm slightly addicted to what I like to call "moderate couponing", Friends reruns, and buying craft supplies that I don't really need. I'm a bit of a homebody, and dream of someday having a beautiful house surrounded by trees, filled with children whom I sew clothes for and bake cookies with. I'm sensitive, emotional, and tend to wear my heart on my sleeve—but I no longer believe those things are flaws. I worry too much, but am filled with an endless supply of hope.
I'm saved by grace, and grateful for that every day.
I've been blogging here since 2007, but have always had some sort of place to spill my thoughts—online or otherwise. I've met so many incredible people through this ol' corner of the internet, and for that I am thankful.
Feel free to email me at wishcakeblog[at]gmail[dot]com with questions, comments or general musings. (Sometimes it takes me a decade to respond to emails, but I'm trying to get better. I promise.)
Having said all of that: let's be friends. Yes? Yes.
Thanks for reading!
