Howdy, I am Natalie.

I am 28 years old. I was born and raised in Texas. This is my story.

I married my best friend on September 7, 2013. Our love story started with a bet in January of 2010. A friendly bet of whether he could get my number turned into something only God could have imagined.

We found out we were expecting shortly after we were married. On June 13, 2014 the best blessing and gift we could have received came into this world.

Being a mom to Makayla is something I cannot put into words. She has turned my world upside down, for the better. She has made me a better person and because of her I have finally found myself & my purpose. Every time I look at her, I thank God for knowing exactly what I needed in life. Because of her, I know that trusting in God plans always pays off. That even though it may be a rocky ride, in the end his plan is glorious!

Oh, I cannot forget about our fur baby, Abigail. She is our 3 year old, miniature Yorkie. 

My blogging journey started about 5 months ago after Makayla was born. I started blogging to share my stories about this new life journey. I have enjoyed every minute in my blogging journey. It has been my outlet for expressing my fears, joys, ideas, thoughts, and struggles of being a wife, first time mom, and follower in Christ. I blog mostly about motherhood, as this is the biggest change that has ever happened to me. I also blog about life, marriage, recipes, and DIY crafts. It is crazy to think that others really enjoy reading my words, thoughts, and stories. I never thought I had a voice before blogging, even when I would speak out. 

I have struggled with my faith since I was a little girl. It was not until about 5 months after my daughter was born that I let go of all my worries and fears and finally started truly trusting in the Lord. Since then, I put my faith before anything else.

I love crafting! It is my escape from reality and how I let me own creativity shine. I am outgoing, quirky, opinionated, and I wear my heart on my sleeve.

I have loved getting to know so many wonderful women through my blogging journey. I hope you will follow along with us on this journey we call life.
