About

Hello, hello, and welcome to my little corner of the internet. My name is Justina. I am a wife to a great man and a mama to an adorable four year old little boy and spunky two year old little lady.

I am a working mom and spend most of my time loving on my family and keeping our house up and running. In my spare time I enjoy working out, crafting and anything DIY. I thrive off to-do lists and sweet tea. I talk A LOT and love to organize things. I love to workout and running is how I clear my head. I am a lover of all holidays but Christmas is my ultimate favorite! I love it even more now that I am a mom. I have lived in the Midwest for most of my life, but the hubs and I love to travel and try to explore as much as we can.

I met my husband back in 2006 while in college and after nearly six years together, surviving grad school, and getting our first “real” jobs, we said “I do”. This blog was started way back in 2010 as an attempt to document the DIY process of wedding planning. After the honeymoon we dove into home ownership and not long after, parenthood, and over time the blog has followed suit. Most often my posts involve my journey (of survival) as a busy mom and wife. I make no attempt to hide the truth of this crazy thing I call life so feel free to kick back and relax because I promise you it’ll be all about the messy bun and yoga pants around here!
