All about ME!

Hi Ya'll!! Welcome to the Stickles Family Blog!

I am Natalie. I am a 20-something {entirely TOO close to 30-something} mommy and wife. I started this blog on a whim and it has quickly become a passion of mine. I adore keeping up with it! I love to share all of the exciting things – and maybe not so exciting things - that are going on in my little world and I love to hear about all of your lives too! From the uber exciting events to just the mundane day-to-day.. you’ll find it here! Besides, that’s what makes life, well.. life! Join me as I try to navigate through it all.. hopefully with a little style and grace!

I am a stay at home mom to a vivacious 7 year old, Lilly Kate, and an all-boy 4 year old, Ethan! We just welcomed Gray Davis on July 6th. I work a few hours a week while Ethan is at preschool and Gray is at MDO, but other than that, I am “Mommy” 24/7! {and I LOVE it!} My husband is one heck of a great guy too.. I mean, who else could put with me?! – it’s ok.. I admit it.. I’m a little high maintenance! ;) We have the sweetest puppy in the world, a yellow lab - Huck. He's 80+ lbs of pure happiness and lovable goodness! (and happens to think he's the size of a teacup poodle!) "Growing up" has been one of the hardest things I've ever had to do, but it's all worth it when you look into those sweet faces every day. You learn to gladly choose Fisher-Price over Jimmy Choos any day of the week. Being a mom and wife is the most rewarding job in the entire world! It's crazy and it's exhausting, but it's PERFECT!

We live in East Memphis, Tennessee and I LOVE being in the South. We have lived here our entire lives (my sweet hubby and I were neighbors when we were toddlers… awww.. ha!) and I feel blessed to call it home! We are surrounded by family and I love immersing my children with the values and virtues of Southern Life. I love my God and I am so thankful for everything that he has blessed me with.

I enjoy wearing big sunglasses and always having a WAY oversized handbag! I am an Emily Post wannabe and get ridiculous about grammar. {even though “blog writing” has made me a horrible grammar victim! Ha!} I love Southern Sundays and a little too sweet lemonade. I love classic movies, mint juleps, pedicures, polka dots and pearls. I enjoy simple fashion with clean lines.. nothing too bright and fancy. (probably why I am always in debt to J.Crew!) And give me a chance to snap a few pictures of my kiddos and I am one happy mama!

Enjoy our journey!
