I started this blog about four years ago and it has evolved over time with my changing life stages and interests. When I was getting married, there were a lot of wedding planning tips, lists, and how-tos. I also frequently write about our house projects since we are almost always doing something to it. Now, with a baby on the way, I have some more posts dedicated to that such as baby showers and decorating a nursery.
I love reading other blogs and seeing how other people live their lives from big occasions, like weddings and babies, to the little daily things, like checklists and home decor. I want my readers to have a similar experience. My posts are meant to inspire new ideas, start a conversation, or share the great work of a completed project – even if I didn’t create it.
So, if you love learning how to do new things, creating intentional spaces in your home, or designing a more simple lifestyle poke around my blog.
With the baby on the way, a full-time job with a commute, a husband, and two giant dogs I don’t post as much as I’d like to, but I keep writing because I enjoy it. And ultimately, that’s what really matters. Do what you love. Everyday I try to live a little more simply so you will see elements of minimalism in my posts as well.
The name BexBernard came from a nickname (Becks/Becs) and my lovable dog. I think the nickname came from my now husband when we were in high school. I’ve seen a lot of British women with the name Bex, so that’s the way I spelled it. Bernard originated from our dogs Hank and Sherman who were St. Bernards. We now also have a Great Pyrenees.
By day, I am a market research analyst. I obtained my MBA because I was fascinated by the constantly changing world of business and marketing. I also wanted to make good money and not live paycheck to paycheck. To feed my creative side, I work on DIY projects, home improvement, make jewelry and crafts, and write blogs about the things I create.
In March 2013 Tyler proposed to me and we got hitched on August 9, 2014!
My blog covers our wedding planning journey, starting a new engaged/married life, improving our home through DIY projects, decorations, and crafts. We have an adorable St. Bernard, Sherman, who is the mascot of BexBernard and Newman, a Great Pyrenees who is fairly new to our home. I love the blogging lifestyle of writing, using new technology, building relationships, and learning design/photography. I have a lot to learn about all of these aspects and I love learning about them.
