Hi. I’m Sam!

Welcome to my blog. I started it 12 years ago, took a break after having babies and started it back up to document my adventures in parenting, wellness, and simplicity. Enjoy!

I'm back

It’s been a cool 5 years since I’ve written a blog post so you’ll have to bear with me and my grammar. I’ve been dying for an outlet to start sharing life again. Social media is great for sharing photos, coordinating events and keeping up with friends but I have to admit, I’m so horribly guilty of consuming more than I create and it’s starting getting the best of me. Also the whole “keeping up” thing is literally exhausting. You know that feeling when you get on Instagram to post a photo of your kids with their underwear on their heads and instead 25 minutes flies by and your thumb is numb because you’ve been scrolling and double-tapping everything that catches your eye. No? Just me? It’s not a great feeling and I don’t even like writing about it - so dumb. So here we are, ramping the old Ledford Life back up to fill this crazy need to create, inspire and contribute.

I used to love this blog so much and it was the perfect creative outlet in which I could write about everything from ovaries and popcorn ceilings to sausage balls and all of the organized chaos in between. Sadly, allllllllll of my past content was deleted thanks to some horrible hosting troll who decided the site was inactive. Boo. I thought about copying and pasting all of the old posts here and pretending nothing happened but there is something special about starting fresh. Clean slate. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve really honed in on what matters most to me + that is what I want to share. Family, design and wellness are basically my favorite things and that is what this blog is all about.

So thanks for checking in and I apologize if you got here from Pinterest looking for the halloween window monster tutorial or the recipe for cinnamon cheesecake bars. I promise to make up for it!
