Hi! I'm Leslie.
I'm from Tuscaloosa, Alabama. I attended the University of Alabama (Roll Tide!), where I met my husband Noah. We got married on December 8, 2007. Shortly after our daughter Emmie was born in 2012, we moved to south Mississippi, where we're living the dream with Emmie (now 10) and Jackson (6).
I started this blog in 2009 at the height of the hobby blogging trend. At that point, I read a few other blogs in my free time and just thought it would be a fun experiment for us to look back on later. I had no idea how this little blog would literally change my life in just a few short years.
When I started blogging I was also starting a career as a 1st grade teacher. I taught for 3 years at what I call my dream teaching job. I worked with the best students and teachers around, and I couldn't be more thankful for the experience. When Emmie was born, I transitioned into a stay-at-home-mom/professional blogger and digital media creator. I absolutely love spending my days this way!
I started out blogging about our family and the things we were doing in our home. Over the years, it has transitioned into a place where I can share how I'm making our house a functional, loving home. On this blog, you'll find snippets of our everyday life, recipes from my kitchen, random home projects, organization ideas, cleaning tips, and celebrations, both big and small. It's really just a big hodgepodge of my passions.
When I'm not blogging, I love working out, reading, crafting, volunteering, spending time with my kids, and catching up on the latest binge-worthy shows with my husband. Even though it is my career now, Lamberts Lately is a true passion of mine; I absolutely love sharing my home organization tools with others.
