Marissa, The Modern Austen
Hi! My name is Marissa and I blog over at The Modern Austen. I'm a twenty-something English teacher moving out on my own for the first time. I blog about my new adventures, DIY projects, fashion, beauty, and education. The Modern Austen is all about classic style with a contemporary twist. I also have a cool feature called Teacher Tuesdays where teachers of all grades and disciplines are welcome to share their teacher outfits, crafts, lesson plans, and/or strategies. Thank you to Michele for featuring me today! I hope you'll stop by The Modern Austen soon :)
hello! my name is allie. i am wife to mark since april 10, 2010, and mommy to a little mouse a.k.a. squeaky a.k.a. norah bean since january 16, 2011. i am 25 years old and i have no idea what i'm doing with my life (ha!). currently i am a stay at home mama, but before that i worked in a preschool for 3 years. it was there that my true love for children flourished and when i became a mother it only multiplied further. besides being super-mommy and super-wife (hehe), you might also find me digging through piles of 'junk' at a thrift store, running the bike path near my house, drinking too much coffee, watching weird movies with my husband, wearing two or more patterns in one outfit, or sitting on pinterest/stalking more and more blogs until way past my bedtime.
my goal, and the inspiration for my own blog, is to give my daughter the best life possible. i believe that the best life is the simplest life, filled with love, laughter, dreams, and play. childhood is the best time of your life (ask ANYONE) and i want to give my girl the most magical one i can. at little mouse's house you will see how we play, the things we make, our thrifty lifestyle, and how we live out our faith.
