Welcome to The Blush Magnolia, a Charlotte, North Carolina based lifestyle blog. I am Elizabeth, a wife and mom navigating life with the help of God's grace and lots of coffee.

This little blog was born back in 2011 when I learned that my husband and I would be moving to Hoboken, New Jersey. I was fresh out of college and thought I had life all figured out until that curveball was thrown our way. Back then it was titled Life with Elizabeth and it really helped me take on that adventure while learning that sometimes in life we simply must learn to bloom where we are planted. I ended up loving being so close to New York but am grateful to be back "home" in the Carolinas. I've rebranded this space quite a few times and its seen me through an engagement, a wedding, five years of marriage, a baby, some heartbreaking losses for our family, four moves, four jobs, and the decision to take a leap of faith and begin working for myself.

Some of my favorite things are the sound of my toddler laughing, a wine night with my best girl friends, cuddling up on the couch with my husband, a good workout, decorating our home (which is a never-ending process), and a fresh mani-pedi.

I am a former teacher turned work-at-home mom. My schedule stays busy these days but I have to say I'm loving it and am so thankful to be home with my daughter (and dog) every day. You can visit my Teachers pay Teachers store for curriculum ideas here or shop Beautycounter here.  Want to chat about working from home or pick my brain on safer beauty? Send me an email!

Welcome! I'm glad you're here.
