About Mandy

Welcome to Mandy Joy Loves! Thank you for stopping by.

My name is Mandy. I live in Cincinnati, Ohio with my husband Kevin, my two step-kids Brady and Natalie, and our daughter Hadley. I’m probably the only Mom you’ll ever meet that doesn’t drink coffee! Love the smell, can’t do the taste. Everyday is an adventure. I love sharing my life with my husband and our kids. In our life, we shout, we clash, we kiss, we make-up, and most importantly we love.

Why call it Mandy Joy Loves? Well my name is Mandy, and this blog is anything and everything that I love to share. Life. Love. Beauty. DIY. Decor. Anything.

Blogging is a way to keep all of my memories forever in one place. When I first started blogging, I was dating my husband Kevin, living in a one bedroom apartment that I loved so so much. I remember sitting on the couch asking Kevin what should I blog about? Ideas started coming, and I haven’t stopped since.

February 2013, Kevin asked me to marry him! Eight months later, October 2013, we were married! Planning our wedding was one of the best times of my life. I enjoyed every second of it. Wouldn’t change a thing about our wedding day, it was so awesome.

Brady and Natalie are my bonus kiddos, from Kevin’s previous marriage. I’ve been in their lives a long time and it’s been such an adventure. Hadley just loves her big brother and sister!

In November 2014, Kevin and I welcomed Hadley to our family and my heart burst and my life flipped upside down (in the hardest and the very best ways.) She is six years old now, and has changed my world in so many ways. Just love her to pieces.

I have a love for anything creative. Since I was a child I would tell people I wanted to be an artist when I grew up. Well, that didn’t happen in the professional world, but in my spare time it happens quite a bit. I love to take pictures, craft, design, paint, and be happy.

The one piece of information that I would want a reader of this blog to take away is just do it. If you want to start a blog, start a blog. If you want to start your own business do it. If you want to shoot for your dream job, just do it.

Thank you for visiting this space, I hope you leave here feeling inspired, or just happy!
