Hi! I am Emily!

Welcome to my small corner of the internet!

Oh hey there!

I’m Emily, your friendly neighborhood mama on a mission to spread joy, wisdom, and a whole lot of love.

Imagine this: a strong, outspoken woman, deeply rooted in long-term recovery, a loving wife, and a proud mom of two adorable kiddos, navigating from the suburbs to the city of Pittsburgh, PA and beyond with the constant drive to do more. That’s me!

From exploring the hidden gems of our city to jet-setting across the globe (or simply day-tripping to the next town over), I’m all about soaking up every moment of this wild ride we call life, with my amazing family by my side.

With a heart full of optimism and a mind brimming with savvy insights, I’ve always been the go-to gal for a dose of positivity and a sprinkle of wisdom. You know, the friend who’s always there to lend an ear, share a laugh, or dish out some real talk.

And hey, let’s talk about leadership and influence – I’ve never been one to toot my own horn, but let’s just say I’ve got a knack for rallying the troops and spreading good vibes wherever I go. Whether it’s in real life or here in the digital realm, I’m here to share my journey, my thoughts, and my adventures with you.

So, whether you’re seeking travel inspiration, parenting hacks, or just a little pick-me-up to brighten your day, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s embark on this adventure together, shall we?

Cheers to laughter, love, and endless possibilities!

Questions I get Asked

1. What’s my “go-to” happy place?

I’d like to say I’m happy anywhere with an ocean and sun, but I find myself year after year continuously drawn towards the Dominican Republic.

2. What’s my favorite family adventure so far?

Last summer we told the kids to get in the car, that we were going to get some breakfast, and drove them all the way to Great Wolf Lodge Niagara Falls! I had such a rush from planning that secret getaway and we really loved the falls!

3. How do I have time to do it all?!

I’m slightly planner obsessed and time-blocking is everything.

4. What is long-term recovery?

Long-term recovery is not just about abstaining from drugs and alcohol; it’s a journey of self-discovery, growth, and healing. It’s about finding balance, embracing sobriety as a way of life, and reclaiming one’s physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. It’s a commitment to ongoing personal development, resilience, and connection with oneself and others. In essence, long-term recovery is about thriving, not just surviving, and living life to the fullest without the need for substances.
