Hi! I’m Molly, a stay-at-home mama to two sweet little girls: Lucy Belle and Emily Rose. Prior to having my babies, I taught third grade for nine years. I liked teaching, but I LOVED the planning/decorating/crafting that went along with it. Those aspects of teaching have easily (some days!) been incorporated into life at home with my girls.
One thing you need to know about me is that I LOVE to bake. When I was teaching, it would calm me at the end of a stressful day. As a mama, it still has that effect, but it’s also a way for me to bond with my girlies. Now that they don’t nap, we look forward to baking sweet treats in the afternoons much to the chagrin of our waistlines! 😉
That handsome fella in the picture is Matt, and we’ve been married since 2006! He is an engineer and works hard every day so that I can stay home with our little ladies. When he’s not working, you can find him being daddy of the year, enjoying a glass of fine bourbon, or caring for our lawn. Summertime is when Matty and his fertilizing/mowing/lawn striping abilities shine!
I originally started this blog back in 2015 to showcase pictures of Lucy for friends and family. The original name was Life with Lucy Belle. When Emily Rose (dubbed Emily Roses by Lucy, which we all thought was adorable) was born in 2017, I knew I needed to change the name to include both girls. Thus, Belle and Roses was born.
Thanks so much for visiting my site. I’m so glad you’re here!
