my crazy little family


I'm Amelia Smith and I'm one of those weird art nerds.

I love music and love it loud! My husband Sam and I are night owls and spend many late nights in our shared office working away on our computers while jamming to music as he writes code and I edit photos or play with graphic design.  I think we're pretty fun together. Oh yes, sam makes a pretty mean breakfast sandwich at midnight. Come on over!

Home is where my heart is.  It sounds cheesy, but it's true. I love being a wife, mother and homemaker.  One of my greatest passions is to continually create a fun, fresh, comfortable home my family will always want to come home to.   

This lifestyle blog continues to evolve as I dabble in a myriad of artistic + home endeavors.  Currently I've been obsessed with watercolors and the Paleo diet.  Aaaand, I could shop every day if I let myself because I go wild over a great bargain  (especially home accessories) and love sharing those good deals with my friends here.  I get a high from it (true story).  So let me be your personal shopper ;) 

My husband and I are both born and raised in  Salt Lake City, Utah.  We actually grew up on the same street.  And yes, we are Mormon :)  We love it here and don't ever plan on moving. 

I aspire to make this worthwhile as I share some brightsides, bargains, ideas, tips, pretty things, silly things, and even a little spiritual enlightenment to make your day, along with mine, a little more luminous!

I hope you enjoy.
