Hi friends! Welcome to Life in a Mason Jar, a space where I share about the things that inspire me and bring me joy along with giving you a glimpse of life with my little family in Central Illinois. I was a Spanish teacher for 10 years until recently when I was blessed with the opportunity to stay at home with my 1 year old daughter, Camila (Millie) Anne. I truly love connecting with other mamas, so expect to hear about all things baby and toddler from adorable clothing to navigating the journey of motherhood.
Along with being a stay-at-home mom I also co-own an online clothing boutique, Meg & Marie, with my mama and sister-in-law. This side job gives me the opportunity to not only spend time with two of my favorite women, but also share my love of fashion!
Preppy and classic style has always been a passion of mine, along with traditional home decor, healthy (and often dairy-free) recipes, and building a non-toxic home for my family. After choosing to serve Millie baby-led weaning foods from the start, I also became passionate about healthy and safe meals for babies and toddlers. I’m so excited to share these topics with all of you and hope they bring some happiness to your life! Be sure to also follow along on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest!
Other things I enjoy include getting lost in a good book, date nights with my hubby, eating outside on beautiful days, baby smiles and giggles, crisp fall days, watching Friends on repeat, traveling adventures, fresh flowers, snuggling up with soup and grilled cheese on a snowy day, baking sweet treats, Netflix marathons with my favorite guy, shopping trips with my family, days spent laughing with great friends, and of course, pepperoni pizza!
