Hi! I’m Casey. Welcome to my online journal where I write about lifestyle, motherhood, making a home, my recipes, reading lists, beauty and more. Since 2011, this site has served me as a creative outlet—a place to write, express my personal style, document the things that inspire me, share a recipe and in more recent years, take notes on the journey of parenthood and maternity. I am always looking for ways to simplify our lifestyle and keep things uncomplicated. With little ones, we try to enjoy the days as they come and embrace the huge learning curve of life.

I am a California native and live here with my husband James (we married in 2011) and our four children. We welcomed Luke in March 2014, a scary but miraculous moment in the life of our growing family. He is a thoughtful and strong big brother, and always gracious to his rookie momma. Kate joined us in January 2016 and we couldn’t believe our blessings; she is a wild, thoughtful, tender and firecracker of a little girl. We welcomed Emma on Labor Day 2017 and she has brought a precious, and loud, sweetness to our clan; we couldn’t picture life without her. Jordan arrived in May 2019, and we are embracing the wild clan we now have!

Besides that crazy bunch, I also love walks along the coast, reading, writing, baking, attempting to garden, playing with my kids, watching basketball and perfecting the art of being cozy.
