Hi, I'm Mandy!
I'm a Florida girl, born and raised. I'm also a Christian, wife, blogger, fur-mom, memory keeper and professional photographer. I began blogging back in 2009.
I blog primarily about memory keeping, but I also love to share about my favorite books, my spunky Jack Russell pup, and our travels. Blogging and memory keeping are fantastic creative outlets for me. I have been memory keeping in one form or another nearly all my life, beginning with journals and traditional scrapbooking in my childhood, then evolving to pocket pages and digital/hybrid memory keeping over the last few years. I've also dabbled in videos and printed photo albums.
My husband and I are both creative people who enjoy doing home renovations, working on projects together and time spent with each other. As you navigate my blog, you'll likely see little snippets of our marriage and life together, including our story of infertility and the loss of our little ones through miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy. Through God's amazing grace, my husband and I have found much hope in our faith and Scripture as we walk this road. In 2018, we welcomed our beautiful daughter into our family through domestic adoption and we feel so blessed to be her parents! Learn more about our adoption story here.
A few random facts about me: I am addicted to Instagram and Pinterest. Ice cream is my favorite dessert. I take a LOT of photos. Christmas is my favorite holiday. I LOVE winter. Sometimes I ramble when I talk. I crave the ocean. I prefer to be barefoot. I enjoy kayaking. I keep a list for nearly everything!
