I’ve been journaling in diaries since I first knew how to write. I took my first disposable camera to church camp one summer in 1998, and the rest is history. I’ve just never stopped writing and clearly my camera roll of over 90k says I never stopped taking pictures, either. Over the years, I’ve morphed my creative outlets into different avenues but eventually we landed here, sharing Our Kin & Home.
My passion, as I’m now deep in the throes of young motherhood, is mixing my creative endeavors, love for family, constant interior design fascination, and rearranging. Finding beauty in the mundane, my photography and joy that comes from encouraging others in finding simple joys… then putting it all here in one spot that can hopefully be a light to others. And also, a family journal of sorts.
So hi, welcome, I’m Mary and I’m often long-winded, but my heart loves big, and I just want to share that here; with you.
