Hi. I'm Christy. I love Jesus, photography and coffee. My lovelies are Madison and Kaylee and my best friend for life is Ken. I have a mean sweet tooth and I hate working out. This blog serves as a personal journal for photography, home decor, art, food, fashion, life and anything else that's in my head.
