I'm a 30-something year old who thinks Target is the most magical place on earth, is addicted to boba, and is hopelessly dependent on chocolate ice cream. My husband Benson and I live in San Diego but were both raised in the Bay Area. In 2014 I became a mom to our daughter Addie. I wouldn't be able to handle life without good food, belly laughs, and loving friends. Above all, I try my best to center my life around Jesus by loving him and loving others!
I work full time for a non-profit organization mentoring and pastoring college students, helping them get in touch with their spirituality and faith in a meaningful and authentic way, and empowering them to live for something greater than themselves. My co-workers are the best, and it's a privilege to be part of.
About the Blog
I've always loved shopping and style, and after discovering style blogs in April 2011 all of that inspiration gave me an itch to rework my closet and let my style evolve. To what, exactly? I didn't know, so I started this blog in June 2011 to help me figure it out.
While Putting Me Together started out as a fun outlet to grow my style, along the way it has grown into a resource for other women to do the same. I've seen a lot of women overwhelmed and distressed about clothes and disheartened about their bodies, and my hope is that this blog relieves some of that. I believe every person deserves to feel great about themselves. Whether you already think style is fun or whether you feel "style challenged," this blog aims to make style accessible to everyone.

I read every single email and am extremely appreciative and encouraged by them. I do my best to respond to what I can, but with a job, a family, and a blog on the side, I may not be able to respond to each email. Thanks for understanding! :)
