Hello, & welcome! I’m Chelsie Wood & I am so happy to have you here! This little blog was born in the living room nook of my itty bitty beach bungalow in a beautiful town called Encinitas. What first began, in 2013, as my personal & intimate online journal to document my pregnancy journey & growing family, eventually evolved as my forum to reach out & befriend people of all ages, locations, and interests! This little space has become my platform to share ideas, crafts, feelings, and more, while celebrating marriage, motherhood, and life!

A small piece of our story: Miles and I met in the summer of 2011 as roommates when he moved home after living in Europe for some time. Miles, by total chance, moved in with my little sister & I. After becoming best friends, we fell in love and were married shortly after. Along the way we have moved a few times, made a few babies (Luca Lennox, 4 years)+(Harlow Rue, 15 months), and set roots near the ocean in north county San Diego.

 Writing is my passion & purpose, crafting & decorating my expertise, cooking & baking my hobbies, traveling & exploring my enrichment, and living with presence my continual practice & joy. Aside from my main gigs as wife & mama, I am a yogi, artist, creator, seamstress, ethical lover of earth & all her fruits, book aficionado, expressionist & conversationist, nonconformist, and lover of all things beautiful and true. I will try to write about those things here.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the bits and pieces of my family’s adventures as we grow & ever navigate through this forest we call life.
