Hi, I’m Amity and welcome to my blog! I’m a 31-year-old interior designer (turned graphic & industrial designer) with a passion for all things mid-century modern. If I’m not working, I’m probably curled up on the couch, surrounded by a cat or two, scouring the Internet in search of inspiration for my next project. Whether it’s sewing, crocheting, cross-stitching, knitting or quilling … I’ll try anything! My love of crafts has no boundaries. While creating things brings me great happiness, my biggest joy in life is spending time with my amazing husband, Ryan.
Ryan and I met during select band practice when I was 12. Fast-forward 18+ years and we are now happily married (going on 8 years) and have two amazing fur babies, Rilo and Neko. We have been actively trying to conceive our first child for 3 years. After 2 years, 8 months and 23 days of trying (but who’s counting?), we decided it was finally time to visit a specialist. Within 45 minutes of our first appointment I was diagnosed with PCOS, placed on a low carb diet, and prescribed Metformin. We are currently in the two-week wait of our third IUI … Fingers crossed! Read more about my TTC Journey here.
My struggle with infertility is the main reason I wanted to start this blog. I needed an outlet. Somewhere I could openly share my infertility experiences and hopefully connect with others who share a similar journey. Somewhere I could share my love of crafts, organization, cats, and everything good. Somewhere I could be myself. While this blog is about my life, it’s not all about me. I want to meet you and learn more about you. I want to listen to your story and offer some support. I may not have all the answers, but I’m happy to share what I’ve learned so far!
Here’s what you can expect from me:
- Updates about my infertility journey
- Excessive pictures and stories about my cats
- DIY tutorials and other crafty posts
- Glimpses into my daily life
- Random posts about the things I love
I can’t promise that each blog I write will be earth shattering, but I can promise that each one will be 100% genuine. So, stick around and let’s get to know each other!
