Hey There! I’m Lindsey, creator of MomAndWife.com. I started this website because I wanted to write about the things I love and enjoy most in life, being a Mom and being a Wife. God has truly blessed me with an amazing little family. I’ve never felt more fulfilled. My Husband and I met through mutual friends, I wasn’t looking to meet anyone and he was about to leave for basic training. We fell in love and were married less than a year later. Three years after that our sweet Chloe Belle was born on Valentine’s Day. Coincidence? I think not. Being a Mother and a Wife has brought more love into my life than I ever could have imagined.

I am, by trade, a freelance web and graphic designer. I absolutely love the creative outlet and enjoy everything about designing. I own and operate Pretty Darn Cute Design Studio { www.PrettyDarnCute.com }.

I’ve been a Christian most of my life and continue to grow and struggle along the way. I’m a bit stubborn and it’s been difficult for me to relinquish control and simply trust in God instead of attempting to micro-manage every aspect of my life. Wow, now that I’ve typed that out it seems so easy 🙂 I love our Lord Jesus for the gift of life and count my blessings every day.

Random Facts About Me:

I could look at fonts all day long, I’m infatuated with Typography. I enjoy being crafty. I have the funniest Sister in the world, no lie, check out her blog here. I’m a middle child and have learned to embrace the many quirks I’ve developed over the years. Pink truly is my favorite color. I love music, and have had a huge ‘music crush’ on Garth Brooks since I was a toddler. I’m a horrible dancer. I’m known for my “loud laugh.” Growing up, I played every sport but soccer. I’m a Texan, a proud one 😉 When I was 9 years old I recorded myself singing Whitney Houston’s “I’m Every Woman” and I’ve yet to live it down. Thank goodness they never found my Celine Dion tapes…I swore I sounded exactly like her! Still do, in the car…by myself.. 🙂

A few of my favorite quotes:

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” -Ronald Reagan

“I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you . . . we are in charge of our attitudes.” -Charles Swindoll

“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.” -Audrey Hepburn

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” -Eleanor Roosevelt

This website is a collaboration of everything I love. God, Family, Mommyhood, Being a Wife, Friends, Recipes, Design, Shopping, Makeup, and the list goes on. “A Little Bit of Everything.” If my “about me” didn’t make you run for the hills, yay! Stick around and “subscribe by email” in the sidebar for the latest updates. Thanks for being here 🙂
