Hey there, welcome. My name is Morgan and I am a momma to three beautiful little girls and have been married to my hubby for nine years.
I am a working momma, and I love that, this site here is a journal of balancing life as a provider, a creative and a momma in a busy, crazy family.
This blog is a little outlet for me to share all of the happenings of renovating our 1930s San Diegan bungalow, our diy projects and family celebrations, recipe & cocktail inspiration, fashion boards and motherhood moments.
Our biggest creative project to date? Slowly tearing apart a Spanish casita and rebuilding it room by room to fit the needs of our family and the practicalities of today. This is where we document some of the sawdust and rehab.
In the professional world, both Kevin and I work in creative fields – he has a degree in architecture and is working on a large hospital here in San Diego (he’s also a food lover and is the owner of several gourmet food trucks – hey, Dang Brother Pizza), I come from a business and design background and am the founder of The Crafter’s Box.
This blog isn’t just about the home. As a creative outlet that embodies so much to me personally, I love to share all sorts of beauty and crafti-ness over here. On top of regular home updates you might find inspiration from favorite entertaining ideas to wardrobe styleboards to recipes that I think are too good not to share.
A little more about me: Born and raised in sunny California, I am originally from Santa Cruz and currently live in San Diego with my husband Kevin and our three daughters, Liv, Taylor and Marlowe. And Bodie – can’t forget our lovable and high-spirited yellow lab. After graduating from the University of Southern California with a degree in Business Ethics & Leadership, I began my professional career as a full time IT & change management consultant – it quickly became a wonderful launching point for a career but left me with much to be desired in the *creative* realm. I moved on to the marketing side of the corporate world and eventually built my own company after a desire to find a way to blend technology, creativity and business.
How this blog came to be: I married my sweetie in 2007 and loved every moment of wedding planning. When we bought our house a year later and I had my first opportunity to ‘create a home’, I focused on also building a blog that chronicled all things creative to join us for the journey. More about the twists and turns right here.
In January of 2011 our daughter Liv was born and our most exciting adventure began. I added mommy to the list of items to chat about, and I continue to share my favorite baby finds and of course all of the adorable photos I can possibly include. June of 2013 brought us little Taylor Rose, and January of 2015 Marlowe Marie. And the blog has expanded to share even more about the happenings of a family in motion.
I like to think of the blog as a little space offering inspiration for the inner creative that’s in each of us.
