Hey y’all! I’m Quin. Wife to Jon. Mom to Noah, Ezra, and Charlotte. Volunteer. Photographer. In love with travel, food, fashion, literature, and art. I’m also a huge coffee addict.
I originated in Ohio and a big part of my heart still resides there but, I’ve been living in coastal North Carolina for over 10 years now. Down here, live oak trees grow sky high and a mile wide, providing the perfect place to relax, enjoy the shade, maybe a little gossip, and a tall glass of lemonade.

Writing & photography have always been a large part of my life. Outlets for me when I knew no others. Early in 2015, I learned that I suffer from bipolar disorder and, to be honest, that diagnosis has helped me to understand so much more about myself. Being able to put my feelings or thoughts into written words has been a channel of creativity and stress relief since I was a preteen. Blogging has grown to be an extension of that.

I’ve composed articles about this and that over the years but, what I’m most passionate about is my family. So, this time around, I’m making our lifestyle a big part of what the content here is all about. There is a ton of fun to be had with my husband and three kids; I don’t know where’d I’d be without them! Hopefully, you’ll get as much of a kick out of my adventures with them as I do.


Thanks so much for stopping in!
