My name is Kelly, and I’m so glad you’re here!
I was born and raised in Wisconsin and currently live in a beautiful, small city in Western Wisconsin with my college-sweetheart-turned-husband, Ben, and our baby herb garden.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Business and a Master of Arts in Teaching. When my husband and I relocated in 2013, I left my career in higher education behind, and I started a blog — something I had always dreamed of doing — to document our experiences as newlyweds and to stay connected with our family and friends from afar.
Since then, I’ve become Co-Founder of With Grace and Gold, where I help creative women in business — photographers, designers, and planners — have an online presence they love and feel proud of.
Here, I love sharing about lifestyle, wellness, travel, and decor.
I hope you’ll come away with inspiration in all of these areas, and feel encouraged to design a life you really love.
Thank you so much for visiting!
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Are you a full-time blogger?
A: No – although, I do work from home, in my yoga pants all day, every day! Blogging is my evening and weekend hobby.
Q:What kind of camera do you use?
A: I use a Canon Rebel T3i and a 50mm f/1.8 lens. I highly recommend this DSLR course from A Beautiful Mess!
Q: Where do you live?
A: I live in a very beautiful town in Western Wisconsin — Eau Claire. Our city has grown so, so much over the past few years, with new restaurants, coffee shops, and music festivals. At first, I was totally against small town living, but now, I wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s so peaceful and beautiful!
