I’m so glad you are here! I created Coffee + Moxie to connect with those who love finding ways to have a beautiful home by recreating a look for less, finding ways to organize small spaces for optimal function, and looking stylish without spending a lot of money.
I also have series posts on topics that are constantly evolving. If you’re curious about how we set our personal finance goals and meet them, you’ll want to check out my Destroy Debt series in which I document how we are reducing our debt each month (sometimes by leaps and bounds as was the case here).
Much of this is a learning and personal growth process for me and so it is my hope to be an encouragement to others who have a desire to make a positive change in their lives.
I am a farm raised, coffee loving, diy enthusiast who is also a wife to a wonderful, caring, and hardworking man and a mother to two beautiful daughters (I will refer to them as C and E). Together, we are growing our life here in the Midwest. We are currently renting our living space (which makes decorating quite the challenge sometimes!) and look forward to the day when we become homeowners.
So why “Coffee and Moxie”?
Because I have two, beautiful, sweet, mischievous, energetic, wonderful and exhausting daughters. For that reason, I have coffee on tap in my home. Okay, not technically, but you get the gist. I loved it before kids, but I LOVE it now.
Moxie is a word meaning “energy”, “courage”, “determination”, and “know-how”. I chose that word because much of what I share here will require moxie in some shape or form. It’s that simple, really.
Thanks so much for coming here to join me!
