Hi, ya'll! Thanks for checking in!

I'm Miranda Kilpatrick, known as Mandy. I'm 25 years old and currently living in Tuscaloosa, Alabama (ROLL TIDE!!). I grew up all my life in Monroeville, Alabama where To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee was written (and about) and where Truman Capote was raised. Fun fact: That was our only claim to fame until my sweet hometown was named the Literary Capital of Alabama in 1997. 

On October 3rd, 2015 I married my greatest blessing, Todd Kilpatrick (seriously, Thank you, Jesus!). He's a physical therapist, and his passion is anything to do with working out. Together we have one little girl, our dog, Timber. She's our child and we love her to pieces. 

I'm a creative soul, and I'm almost equally as extroverted as I am introverted (but introversion wins by a small amount). I love writing my thoughts. It gives me clarity. I also love shopping, baking, and innovating. Alone time through long drives and morning or evening walks cures all my stresses. My passions are found in nature, home decor/design, clothing, traveling, and helping others through my own discoveries. 

Jesus holds my heart and soul, and He fulfills me. All I am or hope to become I owe to Him.

I've started this blog as a way to merge all of my passions and dreams. I love sharing and I'm constantly trying to find the best balance in all areas whether it's affordable home decor and clothes, new healthy recipes and foods, splurge-worthy items, organizing/decluttering, or spiritual/mental/physical health. I hope to be inspiration in making your life beautiful in practical everyday ways. I'd love to have you tag along!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
