My name is Carise (pronounced Karis). I’m the wife and mother of our little Echols family. I’m a first grade school teacher by day along with being a full time mom and wife. I’m the mother to one beautiful daughter, Zoe (the inspiration behind my blog). My husband, Preston, is the love of my life, my dearest friend, and the most wonderful father. If I’m not spending time with my family, you can generally find me shopping, chatting with friends, or scrolling through social media.

This blog is where I write about life. Its my space to write, reflect, connect, & inspire. You’ll be able to read a lot about motherhood, marriage, and faith, with some DIY’s sprinkled in between. Hopefully this is a place where you feel encouraged and reminded that as humans, we are often dealing with similar things-some good and some bad.

I hope you stick around to read along as I write about ‘mom life’ while being authentically me.
