Hi! My name is Marissa and I’m a wife and mom to two young kids only 14 months apart- our daughter Brielle who is 1, and our newest addition, Brayden who’s still a newborn.  We have been over the moon to start and grow our family so quickly and I created this blog to share my experiences and insights of motherhood with all of you.

A little more about my family: I met my husband while living in a concrete jungle (Hoboken, NJ) and within 1 year we were engaged homeowners, starting our new life in the suburbs at the Jersey Shore.  Just a couple short months after our wedding, we were ready to start our family and now within 2 years of being married we have already started our journey toward becoming a family of 4.  We are so excited for the arrival of our baby boy and watching Brielle become a big sister.

I’m currently taking time off from being a full time occupational therapist in an elementary school, and testing out my strength in taking the leap toward becoming a stay-at-home mom now that our son is born.  I hope to share with you my experiences at home with 2 kids under 2, insightful activities to do with your babies, and just things I’ve learned along the way.  I’m a lover of traveling, DIY projects, rustic decor, bargain hunting, cooking, and seasonal activities.  Now that I’m a mom, I also believe in the benefit of simplifying our lives and paying for convenience- anything to make life as a busy mom easier! I hope I can provide some relatable experiences and that you’ll share in all the little joys of motherhood with me.
