Welcome to MJB♥! (mjb loves) Thank you for taking a look at this blog. My aspirations for this space range from creative ideas, crazy thoughts, and my love for taking pictures. What better way to have a forever memory of the important things that matter in my life.
My name is Mandy. Nice to meet you.
I live in Ohio with my husband Kevin, my two step-kids Brady & Natalie, and our daughter Hadley. Everyday is an adventure, and I love sharing my life with him and our kiddos. In our life, we shout, we clash, we kiss, we make-up, and most importantly we ♥.
Why call it MJB Loves? My stepson drew me a picture book one day. On some of the pages he wrote his name and then drew a bunch of hearts. When he read the book to me he said, "Brady loves" and I thought that was the sweetest thing. He was the inspiration for this blogs name. MJB Loves....all of these things that I blog about. Life. Love. Paper. Anything.
I have been blogging since April 2011 because I thought it would be fun. Boy is it ever! I love to blog to have something to keep all of our memories in forever. I have done the traditional project life for scrapbooking, made mini paper books for fun, but this blog is something I will always be able to look back on and read all of the things I don't want to forget.
When I started this blog I was dating Kevin at the time and living in my one bedroom apartment that I loved so so much. I remember sitting on the couch asking Kev what should I blog about? Ideas just starting turning in my brain and I haven't stopped since.
In February 2013, Kevin asked me to marry him. Eight months later in October 2013, we were married! I would not change one thing about our wedding day, it was awesome! You can read more about our DIY wedding here. November 2014, we welcomed our first child together Hadley! She has changed my world in so many awesome ways.
I have a love for anything artsy. Since I was a child I would tell people I wanted to be an artist when I grew up. Well that didn't happen in the professional world, but in my spare time it happens quite a bit. But anyhow....I love to take pictures, craft, design, paint, and be happy.
Thank you for visiting this space. I hope you leave feeling inspired, or just happy!
