About Clarissa

Hi everyone! I’m so thrilled that you’re here!

I’ve been married to Ryan for 7 years and we have two little boys, Banner and Anchor (who was just born this July!). I’ve lived all around the country but finally found home in Portland, OR. 

I have fancy taste on a frugal budget- so I’m always on the hunt for beautiful fashion & home decor that won’t break the bank! And I absolutely love traveling- and finding ways to do that with a baby and a toddler without losing our minds. 😉



Ever since our first son was born in 2015, I’ve struggled with identity. All of a sudden, I was a mom- and often felt like I was JUST a mom. I went from owning my business, traveling around, and doing whatever I pleased, to putting someone else’s needs first- and often completely neglecting my own.

If I’m honest, sometimes it’s easy to daydream about how life used to be- even though I used to daydream about how life would be with kids! Our minds always want to be discontent with whatever season we’re in. One day I got tired of that! This blog and my Instagram are a self-discovery journey of finding beauty in the ordinary- from diapers to dishes. I hope you’ll join me, and together we can learn to celebrate the joy in everyday motherhood moments!

Oh! One last thing- let’s be friends! 🙂 Whenever the stars align & both kids are napping at once, I’ll be sending out the occasional newsletter. Click here to sign up & be the first to hear about any fun news or giveaways!
