Hey guys!  I'm Marisa, I am a wife and stay at home mom living in a suburb just outside of Portland, Oregon.  I am married to my high school sweetheart and the love of my life, Eric.  We have been blessed with two blue eyed baby girls, Sloan and Phayre.  We are currently expecting our third babe, our first baby boy(!) due late summer 2017.  I love connecting with other mothers and this blog along with social media has been a great way to do that!  I love sharing about marriage, motherhood, and creating a beautiful home.  Here you will find my adventures in motherhood, projects or events I've worked on, and products we love.  I'm a major fan of sunshine, champagne, and celebrating.  Thank you for stopping by, I'm so happy you're here!

A little more about us...

I met Eric in high school at a mutual friends party.  It was love at first sight and I remember looking at a friend and saying, "I'm going to date him!".  It didn't take long before we were inseparable and talking about the rest of our lives together.  Eric surprised me by asking me to be his wife while standing in the Mission Inn chapel in Riverside, California.  A year later we were married on August 29th, 2009!  We've moved A LOT for Eric's job, but it has provided a wonderful and adventurous life for us.  Eric works harder than anyone I've ever known and because of his hard work I have been able to stay at home with our babies.

After years of trying, our sweet miracle baby Sloan Eloise joined us on May 1st, 2013.  I left my job as an elementary school teacher to stay home with her and it's probably the best decision I've ever made.  Spending my days raising our sweet babes is what I was born to do.

Shortly after Sloan was born, Eric's job took us on another adventure and we moved to Seattle, Washington.  We lived in a tiny little apartment in a high rise downtown!  While living in Seattle, we met some lifelong friends, went to a ton of Mariner baseball games, and made so many memories as a family of three!

As we thought about adding another baby to our bunch, we realized that we were quickly outgrowing our swanky Seattle apartment.  Right around the same time, Eric applied for another position and we moved back to Oregon (I guess we were never meant to stay away)!  We bought a new home and two days after we moved in we found out we were pregnant again!

Our little Phayre Golda (who we call Phayre Bear) was born on July 30th, 2015.  She has been such a blessing and I am forever grateful that we were able to give Sloan a sister (something I never experienced).  My girls are two peas in a pod, truly the best of friends.

So that's us!  We're just a couple of kids who met and instantly fell in love.  Loving each other and our children fiercely and trying to live life to the fullest.  I am documenting our journey and our adventures-the highs and the lows that make motherhood so incredibly hard and beautiful all at the same time.
