I'm a twenty-something blogger who's taking the corporate world by storm while pursuing domestic bliss through all things DIY. As much as I love the life I live, I dream about the day that I get to stay at home and raise a family. I love to talk, cook, and create so DIY blogging is the best hobby that I could have ever picked up. Take a look at my blog to dive a little deeper: http://spoolandspoonblog.com
