Bio:

Emily was born in Louisiana and raised on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. She met her husband in college and moved to Memphis in 2002 right after they got married. They first lived downtown and then in East Memphis, before settling further east in Germantown in 2011. They had their son, Gray, in October 2007 and their daughter, Hayes, only 20 months later in July 2009. Emily's kids are only one grade apart and are often mistaken for twins. Emily loves red wine, peanut butter, all things homemade and DIY, hot baths, and laughing so hard you cry.

These Are a Few of Our Favorite Things (About Thanksgiving)
When I was a child, my favorite holiday was Christmas--the gifts, the sweets, and the twinkly lights were as seductive as a nap for a mom with a newborn.  During high school and college, Halloween was the highlight of my year. I mean, what teenager doesn’t revel in a little sanctioned mischief?  But now, as an […]
Girls’ Night Out :: GNO Like a Pro
GNO, also known as “Girls' Night Out.” Until a couple of years ago, I had no clue that this was a “thing” and something I needed desperately too.  Sure, I saw my friends at the zoo as we took turns plucking our toddlers off the fence between us and the lions or across the produce […]
