A mama. A military wife. A Journalist turned lifestyle blogger. A creator. A mental health warrior.
Welcome! I’m Stephanie and I live in gorgeous Halifax, NS on the East Coast of Canada with my my fabulous husband and two little boys. Whatever brought you here, I’m glad you decided to click over. Here’s a little bit about me to get you started:
Long before blogs were cool, I was scribing away in this little online space, sharing my life-changing cross-country move, my life as a military spouse, and my journey with depression. While this blog has seen many different iterations, the heart is the same.
This version of the blog was born just after my first son was born, in the summer of 2014. Desperate for an outlet and a space to share what I was up to creatively, I started sharing the DIYs and home improvement projects my husband and I did to our two bedroom condo to make it safe and liveable for a family of three.
Along side the DIYs, I started sharing a bit more about me and the struggle that was and will always will be brewing inside of me and this magical thing started to happen. Women started reaching out to me. They began to thank me for sharing and for helping them to realize more about themselves.
From then on I vowed I would go there and chat more openly about those struggles and share some of those raw and real moments of motherhood. It’s not all arts and crafts, there’s a few hot glue gun burns, too 😉
Thanks for stopping in! Hope you’ll click around and go check me out on Instagram.
