Hi. My name is Erin. I’m a Midwest gal who loves music, art, fashion and decor, my husband and above all, God!  Life, Love, and Lessons is my blog where I write about daily events in our lives, my students and classroom, relationships, meal ideas, DIY’s and Crafts, Fashion and Home Decor.

I am all about hanging with the hubby,Dave, eating his incredible cooking (cooking and I have a love/ hate relationship), getting together with friends, watching the Bachelor/ Bachelorette ( because, why not?!), planning fun events and parties, doing yoga ( well, trying to 😉 ), affordable fashion and home decor (Target obsessed), talking about life, my job and my students, my faith, and a great Cabernet🍷  

The journey of life is sometimes hard, full of difficult seasons and joyful ones- I want to encourage and uplift everyone through this blog, give you ideas and inspirations, and ultimately be honest and real about the seasons we are navigating in our lives.

I am a middle school orchestra teacher, (kids are the funniest, quirkiest and most awkward during this time, and I love it!) a private violin/ viola instructor, and a professional violinist in the area, so as you can tell I absolutely love music… it’s my life! 🎻🎼 I  I have the best husband who is handsome, my best friend and an AMAZING COOK- Thank God! ( I actually prayed that God would bless me with a husband who loved to cook, because I hate it). The hubby was a merchandise manager for different tours, (his last tour being Beyoncé), and for the first 3 years of our marriage was on the road A LOT! He recently decided to go back to school for a computer science degree, so we are learning how to be in the same place at the same time for longer than a month at a time.

I have the best friends in the whole wide world that I met in college and a decade later, we are the closest we have ever been! I love getting together with them watching our shows, planning fun outings and parties, and just doing life together. Find the friends you can be yourselves with and share the worst parts of yourself and they will still love you- that’s true friendship! i love yoga and try to stay fit- But I won’t lie, I love 🍕, 🌮 and 🍔 , AND  could seriously eat them all the time- so I fall off the diet plan A LOT! 

I love spicy foods, ( I could eat Jalapenos on everything), chocolate and coffee… mmmm…. and enjoying an occasional Cab!


I hope you enjoy the site! I look forward to getting to know you and hopefully inspiring and encouraging you.❤️
