About me.


I'm Chelsea: The girl who loved to write. And I'm really glad your here.

I'm a dreamer, an eternal optimist, and equal parts homebody and adventurer. I'm a Florida girl through and through. I'm happiest by the pool or ocean, with a book in one hand and a cold drink in the other. 


I have a love affair with all things colorful and tropical and am on a mission to make every day seem more like a vacation. 

I'm married to a surgery resident (yes, it is just like Grey's Anatomy), which is teaching me a lot about how time is precious and we need to make the most of spending it. I have a one-year-old, Jack, who is teaching me that every day is truly an adventure. 

I love to write (SHOCKER!) and believe that our words are powerful and that they can truly change everything from our daily attitude to the whole world. 


I want this blog to be a little slice of sunshine on the internet. I want you to come here and be encouraged and inspired and reminded of the good in life. 

It's a place where we can be real about the bad while also finding the good. A place where we can have coffee dates together, where I tell you about my current obsessions, where we can learn from each other and dream big together. 

I believe that life is so good, it's worth writing about.

  7. So glad I found your blog! Well I guess you found mine first! lol! Congratulations on your wedding may God richly bless you both! I'm a writer but I write plays and screenplays. My dream is to be a filmmaker one day. I have been married for almost 11 years and have three kids. Somehow I still feel like a newlywed though! I'm passionate about following the dream God has placed in your heart as well and I'm so excited that you are so open with yours! It's so inspiring and encouraging. I look forward to one day purchasing your book!

  12. Love your About Me and your cool blog. I can't live without a daily dose of words, whether I write or read them so at least we have that in common. Unfortunately not an artsy person by any stretch of the imagination but I do have an appreciation for beautiful homemade craft. Nice to meet you here and best of luck on becoming an author - you can do it!

  28. Just found and love your blog. You and your husband seem like beautiful people. Gatsby is the most foxylicious cutie ever and I wholeheartedly condone any bribery, guilt tripping and pestering you needed to do to get him. I live with 2 norwegian elkhounds( think super chubby , snuggly wolves!) who I adore. Your granny post really touched me. My granny grew up in rural Scotland in a family of 13 and was full of great stories, I still miss her every day . Keep up the writing , you have a gift and will be buying your book , love, Alison x
