It’s so nice to meet you! Let me a tell you a little about myself and my blog…
All About Me…
I’m a wife and mother of three boys, one girl and a toy poodle named Charlie. I have a degree in Elementary Education, but chose to be a stay-at-home mom. We call Kentucky home and Florida our home away from home.
I’m a blogger, interior decorator, DIYer, crafter and a television spokesperson. You can find me on WTVQ36 on the first Tuesday of the month, sharing quick and easy DIYs for the home.
Fashion, travel, coffee and all things beautiful are a few of my favorite things in life. I have a confessed obsession with Sephora and find that I can never have enough cosmetics!
I truly have a love for design and home decor and I am continually working to make our house a beautiful home. I find that it is a continual process that changes as I evolve as a person, wife and mother. I consider my style to be transitional…a mix of traditional and contemporary home decor. I mix antiques and flea market finds with current new pieces. I want my home to be layered with pieces that tell a story….the story of our lives.
And RED is my favorite color!
How the Blog Began…
Becoming a blogger was something that sort of just happened. A few years ago, we purchased a vacation home in Florida and I became obsessed with creating a beautiful vacation retreat for my family. I began creating, decorating and DIYing my way through each room. After I created a DIY headboard for my daughter’s room and my Sea Fan Wall for the dining room, it was my daughter who suggested I start a blog and share my creations.
Start a blog? Why not…
I began thinking about what I wanted the blog to be about and what I wanted to share. I realized that I wanted it to be about two things:
- THE HOME
- BEAUTIFUL THINGS
Isn’t that what a home should be? Beautiful?
Not just aesthetically beautiful, but beautiful in every way…in meaningful ways. It needs to be a place where your family gathers and finds peace and comfort. It needs to welcome not only your guests, but you. It should make you happy just to be there.
One definition of the word Home is “the place in which one’s domestic affections are centered.”
Since then, the blog has grown to become more of a lifestyle blog. My goal for this blog is to share and hopefully inspire my readers with my ideas and thoughts on home decor, fashion, beauty, travel and life in general. This blog is about my house and what happens within it’s four walls.
What’s in a Name…
Let me give a little explanation of the name House on the Way…
We do not live on a street, avenue or road. We live on a “way.” Our house is literally on a WAY…and since creating a beautiful home is a continual process, my house is always on the way to becoming beautiful.
Hence the name…House on the Way.
