Hi there! I’m Blake, and this is my tiny corner of the internet.


Wife to the hunky, hard working Jeremy for the last 5 years + mama to the two most beautiful and bright little girls of all time (understandably biased here). We’re big believers in Jesus, community, and grace always winning out.


I’m a full-time wedding planner turned work-at-home-mom graphic designer. I own + operate Magnolia Ink – a brand & website design studio where I help fellow creatives build a brand they can be proud of, and a website to establish their bad ass internet presence.


My favorite food is pizza, and I don’t care one bit how cliche that is. I love wild and crazy Friday nights, in bed with my husband by 8:30 with a glass of wine watching an episode of Seinfeld for the 100th time. I’m passionate about honesty (hence the tagline), being who you really are, and showing up for the inevitable journey to get you there.


It’s taken approximately 28 years, but I’ve learned to love/embrace this bold, loud, confident personality God created me with instead of apologizing for it. I write about that process and whatever else enters my weird brain, because – ya know, this is my blog and I can do what I want with it.
