About Me:

I’m a (recovering) perfectionist, the wife to a man who is always good for a hug, and the mom of two boys. Becoming a mom was the best thing that ever happened to me because this perfectionist got a well needed kick in the butt! Ha! During that defining time (aka “my deep dark hole”), I started a styling business and blog as an outlet, and both proved to be more rewarding than I ever imagined. I didn’t realize how therapeutic it would be and how much growth I would experience through sharing not only style, but my messy life struggles with you all. Thank you for coming along with me and for reading C. Style.
