Hi there and welcome to my blog! I am a Southern transplant hailing from the midwest who loves chocolate, coffee, Cardinals baseball, and the great outdoors. I love a good yard sale and thrifting for vintage finds. I have an amazing family, circle of friends, and church family.

When I was 18, I fell for the cute guy behind the drum set and the rest is history. We’ve been together ever since and are going on 14 years of marriage.


After almost 8 years of infertility and a pregnancy loss, God miraculously blessed us with the most beautiful baby boy. He is incredibly smart, funny, loving, and strong willed! He is perfect and more than we could have ever asked for or imagined!


The most important thing you should know about me is that I am a daughter of the King, a follower of Jesus Christ. He has redeemed and restored me. He has given me beauty for ashes. He is my everything.


My hope is that blume & grow will be a place where I can share bits and pieces of my little corner of the world and offer information, encouragement, and support for topics that I’m passionate about like faith, family, marriage, parenting, DIY-ing, adoption, infertility, and more. Thank you for stopping by. May you be blessed today and always.
