Hey there lovelies! I’m so glad you stopped my little haven here at Creating with Claire!
Little Snippets from My Magical Life
First off, this is me! Hi there!
To keep me honest and true here, I’ve got to admit that my life is more often than not CHAOTIC and burgeoning with crazy, incredible, and delish ideas that drive my husband and my brain bonkers. Now, I choose to view this mess as magical opportunities and supremely exciting (I mean you never know where the day is going to take you!) while my husband, on the other hand, I’m sure may be more apt to say that this chaos is “lacking linear qualities” and could use a great deal more forethought but as the saying goes “To each their own!” (as my brain short circuits a bit trying to remember waaayyy back to high school math and whatever the heck linear qualities are! Thank goodness I married an engineer to help me out with those pesky things I can’t remember anymore!)
Speaking of that handsome devil, I am blessed to be married to incredibly handy and hunky Mark . Here we are at our wedding day looking all spiffy and oh so freshly young!
If you see any cute shelving, accent pieces, or just anything cool on the blog that isn’t made from food, those would be courtesy of his hard work and ingenuity. He’s the master woodworker in our home working behind the scenes to make that all that glorious magic happen! Thanks hubby!
I am also the crazy fur-mama to our four adorable fur babies: Marshall, Lilly, Hawkeye, and Trapper.
I do love them like my very own children and they’ve really stepped up to the plate to act as surrogate children with recalcitrant personalities and quirks to help prepare me for the joys, and trials, of motherhood!
I am the soon-to-be first time mama to our darling Snowflake, aka French Fries and Chocolate Cake or Little One or, if you’re not into nicknames simply, Baby! (Yes, there are awesomely adorable stories behind each of our nicknames, perhaps I’ll get around to writing about them sometime so we can all laugh together!) Mark and I are overjoyed to be welcoming this tiny new addition to our family unit and have already spent countless hours brainstorming ways to make sure they turn out just as nerdy and awesome as we are!
We live in a small town in central Michigan in a rambling old Victorian home, that is just full to the brim of charm and character…ahem that’s really just a nice way of saying lots and lots of projects!! But we love our home
These are a few of my favorite things

The Professional Me
I am a Certified Holistic Nutritionist! Woot woot! I love food so much I went to school for it! That may be crazy talk but I loved every minute of it and thoroughly enjoy everyday that I get to wake up and do this for a living! As a work-from-home lady, I have the great pleasure of designing my own office space and everyday I am joined by the cutest clients so eager to sit in “the chair”!
I am a passionate student of all things natural health! Although I graduated from nutrition school January of 2017, I continue to learn and grow every day as a nutritionist and as a healer!
Next up on my plate is Clinical Herbalism…and perhaps a whole host of other magical things, who knows where the future may take me!
I believe with my whole heart that food is the greatest medicine we can choose to gift our bodies with every single day to achieve a full and vibrant life!
