Good morning! You guys are giving me all the feels with all of the shout outs and love helping me to 10k! With all of my new followers I wanted to jump on here and introduce myself and my little family!!
I am Kayla and this is my crew! I am now 32 years old and embracing my thirties with very full hands (👶🏼👶🏼👶🏼)My husband Alex and I started dating in high school and he left a footprint in my heart from the minute I met him! We have now been married for 6 years and in that short time we cared for my sweet Mom as God carried her home, bought and sold two other homes, had our three cherubs in three years and are now living at his parents house as we build our dream home on family land! .
My oldest daughter is Penelope and she just turned 4.5 and she is my rule follower and mother hen! Eleanor just turned 3 years old and much more adventurous! Our youngest Breckum is 18 months and boy oh boy is he every ounce of boy ( into everrrryyything) They complete me and are the reason behind everything I do!
I am an occupational therapist and I work in acute care at a trauma 1 hospital. I love what I do! I get asked a lot how I manage with all the kids and working and my answer seems to change every 6 months lol! I did take some full time off after Breckums birth and stayed home for a good 9 months, but at the end of the day- being home full time wasn’t for me! My profession brings something to my life- does not take away, so I went back! I’ve learned this stage of life is all about balance and what feels right now may change shortly! As a mom of young kids I’ve learned to be kind to myself and try and reduce to guilt so I can be the best version of myself. It’s a constant balancing act.
My husband has always been interested in real estate and flips. We own four condos and we are CONSTANTLY on the hunt for additional real estate projects or investments. We hope to continue with this business and maybe utilize some design skills we’ve learned along the way in this build into our future projects.
I don’t have much else right now other than I want to say thank you! Genuinely and sincerely! You have made this journey so fun!
My own giveaway coming when I hit 10k ♥️

Market is right around the corner - what styles would you like to see added to the store? Lately I’ve been falling more in love with the industrial, modern, vintage look and heavy colors. We’re still on our “New Year New Look Sale” with 30% off all furniture. Open regular hours!
We’re spending this frigid and snowy day inside trying to finish up some last touches on our home improvements. There’s something I love so much about photographing clean lines, fresh whites and greys with little touches of greenery. Most likely the aesthetic it adds to my feed 😂
I also caught a little bit of flack for my cheesy letter board sign, but hey, I think we all need to be reminded to keep positive sometimes in ways other than “live, love, laugh”, am I right?
Hope everyone is staying safe and warm indoors today! How will you be spending your snow day?
A looming snow storm means we get to hunker down with tea and bees 🐝

A little about me.
I started this Ig account as a way to document my journey of moving from San Diego, Ca. to a small town in north central Florida almost 6 month’s ago. Being a lifelong city girl, now living in a small country town has come with some growing pains. So far the pros are outweighing the cons. .
My favorite place on earth is Kauai. I didn’t get married until I was 50 years old! My husband was definitely worth the wait. I love him without measure🥰. I have an amazing son who I love more than words can express❤️. I have a rescued fur baby named Lomi Lou. She is a chihuahua/Pomeranian mix and one of the biggest loves of my life.❤️I am an unabashed Prince Rogers Nelson fan. I cried the day he died and many times since. I love arts and crafts, all things related to design and decor, and lately have been exploring the world of photography. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Art and a Master’s degree in Counseling & Marriage and Family Therapy. I believe holding space with people who are in pain is a sacred act. I believe in God, and believe he reveals himself in different ways. Nature is like therapy for me, but you will never catch me camping. I detest cold weather, but love seeing all the beautiful snow filled photos on Ig. I live with chronic illness, and try to make the best out of my good days. I’m a social introvert. I love the art of conversation and am not shy. I have a natural curiosity about people and life in general which makes me outwardly social, but I do require a lot of alone time to recharge mentally.
I am here on Ig to share authentically, and hopefully inspire others, because you all inspire me so much!
Would love to know anything about you that you’d like to share. .
