Hi, I’m Kalley!
I am so excited you are here. I was born and raised in Virginia. After a couple brief years in South Carolina, my husband and I settled back in Virginia to raise our beautiful daughter, Madeline. We also have a three year old Goldendoodle named Winston (my favorite show is New Girl). I attended college in VA and majored in Music and Education. After teaching music, I switched to teaching Kindergarten and First Grade. I love teaching and inspiring, which plays a big part of what I do now.
After moving back to VA, I had trouble finding a teaching job in the grade I wanted, so I made the decision to be a nanny while focusing on the small business I had recently started. My business grew quickly and it was super exciting! I sold hats and other knitted accessories, and eventually started designing patterns for other makers. In 2020, I started my blog and started working with brands and influencing. I am currently the happiest I have been in my business journey and can’t wait to see what opportunities the future holds!
I love knitting (duh), buying yarn, working out, sipping tea, watching tv shows, reading, cooking, and spending all day with my little girl. I am so thankful to have you as part of this community and my hope is that my blog + social media encourages and inspire you in some way, big or small.

Thanks for stopping by!
