Hi. I’m Emily.

At different times in my life, being Emily has meant different things. 

For a long time, I was a serious musician.

For just as long, people have said I was creative.

For four years, I was the band director. 

For a while, I was the girlfriend.

For about 6 years, I have been the Pampered Chef Lady.

For a few years, I have been a wife. 

For most of my life, I have been anxious. 

For most of my life, I have strived to become more organized. 

For all of my life, I have lived up to the meaning of my name – Industrious.

I don’t think that I ever planned to be a blogger. My background is in Music Education, and I thought that was where I would stay. But since becoming a wife and momma, I have found a lot of passion for becoming better at both. Though I will never claim to be the best, I have been striving to be better and better since I started.

I hope that here you will find yummy recipes, fun things to do with your kids, and products that I love that make momming and wife-ing better and easier. I also hope that if you come across a recipe somewhere else that just isn’t quite what you want it to be, that you can bring it here for suggestions to make it better.

I also hope that you will see here that I am all about being real. Real life is messy – at least mine is. I am also going to keep posts a little shorter because I know that you are busy. I know you don’t have time to read through my whole life story to get to a tiny recipe.

Know that at least when you’re here with me, you aren’t alone.
