Hello Everyone & Happy Monday! Welcome to Crayons & Cashmere, a fashion + lifestyle blog created by me! Holy moly, I think that is the first time I have typed that out. I finally started a blog, and I couldn’t be more excited. It has been such a long time coming and with the new year I decided what better time to get going and jump in head first? I am slightly terrified, but more excited than anything!
I wanted to use this first post to tell you a little about me and my WHY, we all have our “why’s” in life, and here is mine. My name is Andrea, I am a Midwest born and raised wife and mama to one, a three year old boy, Graylan. When I am not playing tractors and trucks, I am working with my business partner (who also happens to be my husband), Matt. We are big dreamers and are constantly plotting and planning our next business venture. I was a business major, and love everything entrepreneur minded! I could talk business all.day.long (I know, I know SO boring for most of you 😉 I will talk more about him and our marriage, and our life with our baby boy a ton in this space!
I am very passionate about a healthy and clean lifestyle, and feel so lucky to have a partner who shares the same passion. I love everything about fashion, beauty, and of course FOOD! We are a GF family, and refined sugar free. Our son is also dairy free, so I have lots of recipes to share that incorporate all three! I haven’t always ate clean or lived clean, but over the years have learned SO much about what exactly is in our food and the products we use everyday and decided to make changes. Learning about the harmful & toxic ingredients that are in almost everything we eat and use on a day to day basis has really has put a fire under me to help others achieve a healthier way to live.
I can’t wait to share more with you all in the coming weeks! THANK YOU so, so much for being here, it truly means the world to me. Until next time!
