Being almost 5 1/2 months pregnant (get used to me shamelessly plugging my pregnancy into every post), the nursery planning and decorating is in full swing.

As I was driving home from work the other day, I started yet another to-do list in my head of things I need to get for baby girl’s new space. While pondering curtain colors and crib bedding patterns, I almost instinctively thought well I’ll just look it up on Pinterest when I get home.

Everyday

Welcome!

Another day, another adventure.

Thank you for visiting The Curve and the Calling. This lifestyle blog will give you a glimpse into the beautiful mess that is my life. There will be laughs, there may be a few tears, but my hope is that you will always find something here that will spark your creativity, or at the very least, inspire a smile.

I live on the curve and I’m constantly finding and pursuing my calling. Through grace, creativity, and Christ I’ve found my happy place in my life, and I believe it is worth sharing with others. That’s how The Curve and the Calling was born.

In the past, I’ll admit, I’ve been a bit of a serial blogger…

Through college I created and briefly maintained a total of four blogs. Each with very different themes and content; A testament to how desperately I was trying to find my “way” during those four years of discovery.

But I’ve found it – the “way”. Or at least, I’m a lot closer to finding it than I was back then. I can’t wait to share with you the things that have brought me so much fulfillment, joy, and contentment, as well as all the bumps and messes along the way.
