i n t r o.

I remember about 3 years ago when I was showing a friend a DIY project I was working on and she was like “you should totally do a blog” and my response was, yeah…maybe one day. And every time since then, anyone that has suggested I start a blog, my response has consistently been, yeah, maybe one day. So, 3 years later, I guess this is my one day.

I have struggled with starting this for years because I have convinced myself that I have nothing to say that someone else hasn’t already said. I haven’t designed a space that someone else hasn’t already designed better. I have no parenting advice that hasn’t already been given. I have no marriage experience to share that someone hasn’t already shared. And to some degree, for all I know, these assumptions could prove to be true. But what I have recently discovered, and am believing to be true, is that there are many great blogs out there with so many wonderful people on the other side of the screen composing them, but not a single one of those people is me. Which is why I have finally mustard up the courage to begin this journey because although there are endless, amazing outlets for you to read about design, parenting, DIY-ing, marriage and everything in between, I offer a perspective that hasn’t yet been given, because its my perspective.

We can all spend our lives being fearful of doing something we are passionate about because we think someone else can do it better. But the truth is, each and every single one of us is unique, which means we all have something unique to offer. Our own unique experiences and perspectives. Our own unique thoughts and advice. Our own unique failures and successes.

My hope is that through this outlet you are encouraged to dream, even if it scares you. That you’d be encouraged to try something, even if it fails…and then to keep on trying. 

So, with that being said, hi, my name is Amie. I am 31 yrs old. I have been married for almost 11 years and have two amazing little boys. We recently just moved to South Carolina and are living in the dreamiest little house…our house on the hill. I invite you along the journey, wherever it may lead, and I hope you find as much joy and encouragement in this as I do.

  1. This is gorgeous, amie!!! I’m so proud of you for taking the first step.

    One of my favorite Emerson quotes is: “Do not go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”

    That’s what you’re doing here. Pioneering your own path. It’s the narrow road that leads to life!!

    Well done!
