From photographer and blogger to purveyor of memories and educator.  I wear a lot of hats between it all and it's a beautiful mess of juggling passions and the intertwining of family and career. But raising babes and building dreams is all I know and here is where I get to share all about it - from my home to yours.

My hope is that you feel inspired while here in the work of getting your hands dirty and cultivating the life you want, making it beautiful, and creating a legacy you are proud of. 

I'm Kara Layne. Wife to a bearded gent, mama to five, and a quintessential creative.

SO NICE TO HAVE YOU

It's about the dinner  table gatherings and the love and laughter shared. It's traditions that fill us and the bonds that shape us. It's recognizing  joy in the mundane, and immersing our children in the spirit of home. It's relishing in a slower place. It's putting effort into the little things

It's about the dinner  table gatherings and the love and laughter shared. It's traditions that fill us and the bonds that shape us. It's recognizing  joy in the mundane, and immersing our children in the spirit of home. It's relishing in a slower place. It's putting effort into the little things because in the end, those were always the big things. It's knowing our greatest success come from the work we do within the walls of our homes. It's getting our hands dirty in cultivating a beautiful life, one that will inspire our babes for years to come. It's about creating a legacy that we are proud of.
