About Me

Hello and welcome to my blog! I’m so glad you’re here! Please pour yourself a cup of tea, coffee or like me, sip on an ice cold Passion Tea Lemonade!

My name is Kendra and I am happily married to my very best friend and biggest supporter and encouragement. He goes along with all of my crazy awesome ideas and I know I couldn’t run this blog without him! He is there for me when I need to meet a deadline, when a project doesn’t go as planned, or when technology frustrates me to no end! I’m the luckiest gal in the world!

Joy In Our Home self portrait

We met fourteen years ago when I applied for a job where he was the manager…. I was smitten from the moment I met him! He interviewed me, hired me, asked me out and we fell in love! (Not as quickly as it sounds though! πŸ˜‰ We will celebrate our 15th anniversary this year and I’m so thankful for him!

Our two greatest blessings in life are our sweet children. We have a precious, rough and tumble boy who is the life of the party and is scatterbrained just like Mama! Our daughter has the most infectious laugh and is thoughtful and sweet to the core. Needless to say, they are our world!

This blog is my creative outlet where I share our DIY projects around our home, a recipe that our family loves and other dΓ©cor ideas!

Some random things I enjoy:

  • Redoing furniture –  I enjoy taking an old and neglected piece and bring it back to life with a brush and a can of paint!
  • Thrifting and garage sales. I’ll take these two any day over the mall.
  • Camping. I love, love getting away and camping with our family! Even if it means being unplugged and without wifi, I’m okay with that πŸ™‚
  • Reading. I have a weakness for a good book… and can hardly put it down once I pick one up!

More than all of these though, I love my family and am blessed with the greatest parents in the world and my sweet siblings and their families.

Above anything else, I love Jesus and my greatest purpose in life is to serve Him. I am nothing without Him.

Thanks for taking the time to visit! I hope you stay a while!

— Kendra

    Read your about me with a smile. I can’t narrow down all the things I’m interested in either. It’s wonderful being married to our best friends isn’t it? I love Jesus too and depend on Him everyday. Grace is an amazing thing, thankfully accepted.
    Blessings πŸ™‚

    Hi Kendra!
    Love your personal story….I’m also married to by best friend, 30 years now! Love how you met your hubby…how sweet! Also loved your coffee table…I didn’t notice if it had wheels or not….I want the same type of coffee table…but with wheels! And Jesus is absolutely the best friend a girl [or a guy] could ever have! Blessings!
