About the Blog:
Hi we are Marissa & Alisa (formerly known as the Elliott Girls, but now we are married)! Welcome to our blog. We are so thrilled that you stopped by! We are sisters and best friends and this is our place to be creative together. While “Not every day is a good day, there is good in every day.” We hope to help people see the beauty in every season of life through tutorials of crafts projects, tips on organizing, cooking, throwing great parties, gardening and decorating. We also comment on the joys and struggles of everyday life as a working woman and a stay at home mom. This blog is our journey through the seasons of life as we live it a distance apart enjoying the simple things in life.
What’s In A Name?
Our mom used to say, “If you always get what you want, when you want it, you will have nothing to look forward to.” Life can be hard, busy and beautiful all at the same time and we know all too well that this too shall pass. Whether or not life is going your way, know that things will happen all in good time! “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.” ~Ecclesiastes 3:1.
Hi my name is Marissa and I’m a recovering perfectionist. I am a former teacher turned mommy. My husband says my class size is just smaller. I love all things vintage, pumpkin spice lattes, and Weinershnitzl (yes, you read that right and I’m not ashamed)! Flowers and anything washi taped make me happy and I might be just a little obsessed with Instagram.
Hi my name is Alisa! I’m a new mommy to a beautiful little girl who works as a program manager and blogs in my spare time. My perfect day would begin with an iced vanilla latte, then browsing though antique stores searching for the perfect home décor pieces followed by lunch with my family on a nice outdoor patio with a cherry coke and ending snuggled on the couch watching TV enjoying warm chocolate chip cookies! I get excited about little things like Pottery Barn catalogs in the mail, the first day of fall, decorating for the holidays and when my husband surprises me with donuts on Saturday morning.
