You found your way to my blog, maybe its fate, or rather, Kismet! Whatever guided you, I’m glad you’re here. Let me introduce myself. My name is Erin, a name I loathed growing up. I wanted to change it to Rynn because everyone I knew with my name, was a boy. In retrospect I’m happy my parents never faltered on their eye rolls and refusal of my request for a legal change; because now, I dig it. It’s me. I’m one of six kids, three boys, three girls. I’m the middle girl, Jan in the Brady Bunch. Couldn’t of been the Marsha could I. And although I grew up smack dab in the middle of a huge family, I found a way to be heard. That was usually through my big mouth, unapologetic opinions and sense of humor… well that and my demand for pink doughnuts on Sunday.
In adulthood I’m a Mom, a wife and a design blogger/product stylist. I list blogger/stylist last because my other two jobs are way cooler. I’m an Autism Mom which has been challenging at times but inexplicably rewarding. I’m also a firefighter’s wife which has been equally challenging and rewarding all its own. We are expecting our second child due in October. A baby girl named, Tallula Belle aka Lula Belle. We can’t wait to meet her. I’ve learned through Motherhood and marriage I’m a pretty strong chick, and I love that about me. I also love laughing, and will never hesitate to look like an idiot for good giggle. Oh, and if you want to quote movies, come sit next to me.
Design is in my blood, my Mom is masterful at the art of design herself. She never pursued it professionally, but did land herself in print and on home and garden tours, even without the credentials. So this world of design just fits; I didn’t get her green thumb though. Its fine I’m not bitter, very. Fortunately the design sense I did inherit, I love! I’m crazy passionate about design and believe coming home to good design can change your mood, even on the days when your boss was a jerk. Thus far my work has been shared by Emily Henderson, Country Living Magazine, POPSugar, Overstock, Article, RueMagazine and soon by The Every Girl and Design Sponge, all features I’m very proud of.
On this blog I plan to share lots more about life, design and mommy hood. I hope to teach you some cool design tricks, inspire your own creativity and if nothing else make you laugh.
