About Me


Hi, I’m Tess!  I’m married to a wonderful man named Eric and we are quite in love with each other, and our daughter Isla.  We met working next door to one another in college and have been together ever since!  I spend most of my days chasing around my little booger and trying to teach and entertain her, but in my spare time, I LOVE to cook and LOVE to shop!  I appreciate photography and design and consider them a few of my side hobbies.  I can often be found either having small dance parties with my small human and husband or unloading the dishwasher.  I love comedy and movies and can re-watch my favorite movies over and over again.  I love to read a good book and get lost in the words and am notorious for finishing every book I read, even if I don’t like it.  We have a fur baby named Gracie that lives with us and another named Oliver that lives with my sister (after not doing well with our daughter 🙁 ) whom we miss every day.  I love traveling and having lots of experiences — because I believe that in the end, that’s what we look back on, the experiences of our lives!

Thank you for taking an interest in this blog!  I hope you find a new recipe or a new fashion item that you enjoy, or at least someone to relate to in this crazy thing we called life! XXOO
