Hello! I'm TracyMom of 2 boys, Wife, Designer, Small Business Owner, Style Enthusiast, Makeup Hoarder, Gadget Addict, Animal Lover & I Like to Play with My Food
Thanks for stopping by,
and thanks even more for taking the time to read my bio which is so difficult to write. Gawshhhhhhh….
I have been a Creative Director/Graphic Designer for the past 15 years and have had the privilege of working with some dream clients. Agency life working around the clock, eating, sleeping and dreaming all things creative brought me exactly where I wanted to be in my career. I was a part of a team that I loved and cranking out work that I was so, so proud of. When you’re in that life it is easy to feel that it defines you, but once I started my family I realized what the real reason for it all was. I stopped living to work, and instead started working to live. I am still designing and still loving what I do, I’m just in a different mindset these days. You can check out some of my work here.
Ahh, my family…. Like the song goes ‘Lucky I’m in love with my best friend’, my husband Eric. The mold was broken with this man, anyone who knows him will tell you the same thing if you ask about him ‘he’s such a nice guy’, and he really is. A man full of integrity, drive and so much compassion, I couldn’t ask for a better partner and father to our two boys Jax & Max. God really blessed us with those two.
We struggled with fertility for a long time, it was a tough and tearful road. After 6 years of trying every old wives tale with no success we sought out a fertility specialist and after one IUI treatment, Jaxson was on the way. The day that he was born was the day I truly realized the meaning of life. I thought I knew love before, but I had no idea.
When Jax turned 3, we decided we were ready to grow our family a little more. When we went to fertility doctor once more, he painted a pretty grim picture for us. His professional opinion was that it would be very difficult for us to conceive for a second time – we had a lot working against us. So he recommended taking an aggressive approach to our treatments which in turn would increase the chances of multiples. So we went home, tail between our legs, and decided that we were going to go for it. We never had a chance to make our next appointment, God had other plans for us. About 40 weeks later Maxwell was here.
That’s the story of our little family. I’m not sure that it qualifies as an ‘About Me’ – probably way more of an overshare, but this little slice of the internet is really all about the things we love. Recipes, Dino Breakfasts, Gadgets, Deals, Crafts, Wellness.

I can say with all honesty that I think that every household with a small child should invest in a copy of the book What Should Danny Do? In my house, it has become invaluable in teaching my son that actions have consequences. The book is a choose your own adventure...
As a Mother, every once in awhile a product comes along that is a complete game-changer. The Claro Baby Shopping Cart Cover certainly falls under this category! I have two sons, my oldest (Jax) is 4 and my little guy (Max) is 7 months old. I intend to use this product...
This whimsical Dr. Seuss First Birthday Party I threw for my son was hands down one of my favorites and it was almost all DIY!
