We’re the bloggers formerly known as “The Real Housewives of Bucks County” (if Prince can do it, so can we!) As of April 2012 we’re East Coast Creative: two girls still committed to Christ, our families and all things creative. We’ve changed our name, but everything else is the same.
We’re passionate about DIY and Design and we like to keep things Real (sometimes really real). We feel pretty darn lucky to write this blog together. We met in high school (when Monica stole Jess’ boyfriend-not really… well, kinda) and have been best friends ever since (14 years).
If you stick around a while, you’ll hopefully pick up a few tips on how to DIY (and perhaps some on how NOT to!) but most importantly we hope you’ll be inspired to live authentically, dream big, and take a few risks in your home (and we’re aware that sounds slightly cheesy).
We’re here 5 days a week, we hope you will be too!
I’m a New England native and Bucks County transplant 13 years ago... I let my Boston accent go, but still have some Massachusetts sass in me. Most of my energy is spent teamed up with my awesome hubs, taking care of our 4 (yes, four) kiddos. I love that occasionally my husband is still asked by strangers if he’s babysitting his little siblings, and that we always are told we’re too young to have four kids (well duh) but this crazy life is ours and we love it. I’m a full-time cyber English teacher by day and a photography-loving, blog-reading, make-a-mess-of-my-house-with-all-my-craft-junk girl by night. Passionate about community, our house is always full of people we love and we hope that never changes (I’m pretty sure as long as we keep offering free food they’ll keep on coming.) We’re thankful for the people God has put in our lives to journey with us as we try to see a little less of us and more of HIM each day.
We love Sundays! Here's where you can find us!
