Hey everyone! Welcome to Maddie Blake! Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog and I’m so excited to share with you all the things I am passionate about.
My name is Lové (pronounced “lahh – vay”) and I live in the Birmingham, AL area. I’m a mom, wife and lover of all things relating to HGTV 🙂
Why “Maddie Blake”?
I chose the name “Maddie Blake” because “Maddie” is sort of an abbreviated version of my middle name and “Blake” is a part of my maiden name. I wanted to keep the blog as my name, but spice it up a little! Haha.
What’s the purpose of my blog?
Starting a blog has been a passion of mine for a while now. After many failed attempts at getting my site going, I finally decided to fully commit into making my blog flourish. I love sharing tips that I’ve learned with others!
What topics will I blog about?
Everything! My interests cover many different topics. I plan to share it all with you. No topic is off the table!
What is my life like outside the blog?
For now I am stay at home mom that also works full-time and goes to school. I have a toddler who is the absolute joy of my life whom I stay home with daily. I have an amazing job with a technology company that I have been with for about a year and a half. In school I am studying science and I am grateful that my husband is my forever study partner!
What are some of my goals?
I want to be more active with blogging. It is a passion of mine and every time I am able to sit in front of my computer and type out a blog I just feel so accomplished. I also want to start my own business one day. One day I’ll share more about that, but for now I’m content and grateful for my life as it is.
