About Me

thanks for stopping by my blog!

my name is carlia and i'm a 30 year old wife, mother, photographer, DIYer, graphic designer, and jill-of-all-trades.

i started this blog in 2008 to journal my experience with infertility, but it became so much more. it turned into a therapeutic outlet for me, evolving to encompass my other interests, eventually including tips for my readers, as well as a few freebies and give-aways.

i'm originally from texas, but have lived in a few different states, currently residing in maryland. it's been 10 years since i moved away from my home state and i'm fighting tooth and nail to keep as much of my accent as i can. ;)

my husband and i finally welcomed our first child, mack, in january of 2012. we tried for 9 years to have him and he was worth every minute of the wait! since his birth, i've become a stay at home mom and i love it! i can't imagine missing a single moment of his life.

we moved into our current home in the fall of 2011 and i'm obsessed with decorating it on a budget. that means lots of thrift store shopping, garage sale hopping, clearanced fabric buying, and manual labor. i'm pretty much making it all up as i go, so i share what i learn as i learn it, so you can benefit from my triumphs and mistakes.

photography has been a passion of mine since i was a teenager. i've had my own business for the past several years and i truly love it! as a self-taught photographer, i want to help my readers hone their camera skills by offering simple tips and tricks to make their photos look more professional.

i hope you'll stick around to see what else i've got up my sleeve!

I'm glad to know that it's possible to overcome infertility. I have two beautiful babies (5 and 3) but we have been trying for 2 years now for a third. No luck. It's hard and frustrating, and annoying and makes me hate my body for not cooperating. It's nice to know I'm not the only one who has dealt with it all.
