My name is Cynthia Whiteside. My husband Brandon and I live in Wichita, KS, with our seven year old boy Matthew, and our one year old girl Lyla! We also have one dog and one cat. I guess we like to keep things even around here 😉

Just to give you a little synopsis on our family, there is lots of Star Wars involved on the guys’ side and lots of shopping/fashion involved on the girls’ side. My husband and I are complete opposites, except for all the important stuff in life. Matthew is the smartest, sweetest little boy with so much intuition that it sometimes scares me. And Lyla is an ever growing bundle of sass and joy that continues to win our hearts over and over.

One thing you will quickly learn is that I don’t like to put up a front and act like we are perfect. Those people and blogs are not for me. We are a messy, free-spirited, mistake-making, abundant-loving family, who rests in the knowledge that our God is a God of grace and love.

I hope over the months and years, that this blog brings some joy to your life, and you enjoy our stories!
