What do you write about on Em for Marvelous?
I write about the people, places, and things I love — anything marvelous, really. I especially like to write about our house and the projects I dream up for it, financial freedom, donuts, my goals, and our adventures. I got married in 2012, so you can also read all about our wedding.
Ahh, your wedding! Tell me a little bit more about it, please.
Of course! Here are all the posts I wrote about our wedding while planning it. I recapped our wedding week and weekend in seven posts: wedding week, rehearsal dinner, wedding morning, first look, ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Here’s our wedding highlights film. I’ve organized things a bit more neatly here.
My goodness, you sure like goals a lot, don’t you?
Why yes, I do! You can check out my current 101 in 1001 list here and my daily goals for 2013 here. If you’re ready for more, here is my first 101 in 1001 list (2008-2010) and these were my daily goals for 2012. My most important goal, always, is to act in a way that reflects well on, and points toward, my God.
Where do you live?
We live in the Triangle of North Carolina. You can see our first apartment here, though we recently bought a house (our search in three parts: here, here, here). You can find most of our NC adventures here.
Is this your job?
Nope! I have a job I love in the wedding industry. I work on Em for Marvelous in my spare time.
Can I buy the things you make?
Sure, you can buy some of them! I have an Etsy store where I sell ribbon and tinsel drink stirrers, cupcake flags, escort cards, and sometimes random things that customers suggest.
Tell me more about your site, please.
Of course! It was designed by me and Brooke at Curious & Company, and programmed by Curious & Company. I collected color inspiration using this Pinterest board. The calligraphy in my header is by Melissa Esplin, and the photo of me on the front page is by Landon Jacob.
Are you marvelous?
Of course I am! And you are, too!
