Welcome to my little corner of the world wide web! This is a space I wanted to create to share my passions and the inspirations that give me and my family a “sweeter” life. I’m not sure where this blog will go, but I look forward to the journey. Life is about livin’, lovin’ and learnin’, right?
I wear several hats: I’m a wife, a mommy, a step-mommy, daughter, sister, Auntie, and friend! I work as an Environmental Scientist by day and this blog was born by my need for a creative outlet. I live with my husband, our daughter Laina, his son Finn (part-time) and our Beagle doggie, Belle. We had our first child together in January 2014, Laina Rose Crystle, who is a sweet bundle of joy.
Some of my favorite things include (in no particular order):
| being pregnant | typography | my handsome hubby | coffee ice cream | hiking | berry picking | cucumber water | hot yoga | the smell of books | elephants! (i seriously have some kind of elephant in every single room of our home!) | linen | that first smell and sip of coffee in the morning | baking | lists (can you tell?) | sunrises and sunsets | photography | want to learn more? check out this post and this post , this post and this post |
Our Sweetened Life believes that inspiration is everywhere and in many different forms, Family Dinner is a must – Every day, and baking should happen at least once a week! Beauty and creativity in all things is everywhere and perhaps there may be some here. Life TRULY is a journey, and I’m always learning something new. I’ll probably never get to where I “should” be because I have no idea what that might be and that’s okay.
Thank you for stopping by!
