Ella + Marie home


Hi, I'm Marie, it's so nice meeting you here! I’m a mom to our 10 month old daughter, Ella. I’m also a step mom to my husband’s 13 year old daughter Gabrielle. We’ve been in each other’s lives since she was a toddler. Even though I’ve gained a lot of experience over the years being a step-mom, and I researched like crazy when I was pregnant, that truly didn't prepare me for what motherhood would bring. Becoming a mama has been wonderful, life-changing and crazy all at once, bringing a whirlwind of emotions with it! Every day is a learning experience.

From 2009 - 2014 I had a lifestyle blog called Blushing and Sweet. It focused mainly on home decor, home entertaining and weddings. As I got busier with my job in PR and events, traveling every so often, it became more difficult to maintain. However at the same time, my interests were changing and I felt the blog was no longer reflecting that, so I decided it was time to move on.

I'm excited for this fresh start and to be blogging again. I'll be sharing my favorite baby products, as well as nursery design and party decor inspiration, to name a few.

See you soon!
