about

Hi! My name is Amberly Arah – like Sarah without the S (it was my grandmother’s name, and if I ever have a little girl I plan to name her Arah 🙂 ). I was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama, which just means I say y’all a lot. Wasn’t crazy about high school, but loved college. I’m not proud of every moment of my life, but I couldn’t be here today without the lessons I’ve had to learn. I married my high school sweetheart and {so far} we have 2 precious baby boys, Caleb and Asa. They are my pride and joy and by far the best things I have done in this life…you will be seeing a lot of them if you stick around!

A recent trip to NYC to visit my sister (Aubrey) inspired me to start this blog. She is an extremely talented photographer and works in the social media field. In one of our conversations blogging was brought up. Being in the job she is in, she keeps up with several well-known bloggers and casually stated that I should start one of my own. For some reason it really excited me. Somedays I feel trapped in my own little world inside our home. I forget that there are other people out there who probably feel the same way. Blogging sounded like a great way for me to reach out and connect with others.

My plan for this blog is to share my thoughts on all things:

  1. mommy-related (the good, the bad, and the downright ugly);
  2. food&craft-related (because who doesn’t love to eat and crafting is my favorite); and
  3. hard truth-related (whether it be something i’ve been told or something i’ve read/observed, sometimes the truth hits us all hard).

I hope you enjoy what you see, and if you find just one thing funny/useful/relatable then I have accomplished all I am here to do. I would love to hear your thoughts and ideas as well, so please share with me anything and everything you want! Let’s be friends, shall we? 🙂
