“Be messy and complicated and afraid and show up anyways.” ~Glennon Doyle Melton

Hello everyone! Thanks for stopping by! I’m Chelsea. Pronounced Chel-suh, although most of my life people have called me Chel-sea. I blame my parents and oftentimes don’t even correct people anymore. For ease, just call me Chels.

I’m a wife, mother and former educator. I’m married to the love of my life and feel blessed to have found my true counterpart and soulmate, as cheesy as that sounds.  We have three amazing and adorable kiddos. Hattie, Hutson & Hyland. We live in northern Indianapolis and love our space which mimics the country, while being extremely close to all the fun of the city.

My mother passed away rather suddenly in 2017. She had been telling me for most of my adult life that I should write and show it to the world. I never listened until she passed. Suddenly I felt an urge to write and make her proud. Taking her advice is one of the best decisions I’ve made. I only wish I’d have listened sooner.

I’m a sappy romantic, coffee junkie, book collector, and person who wears my heart on my sleeve. I’m sarcastic and emotional, which is useful when writing. I love hard and try to count my blessings daily.

My goal as a writer is to take real-life experiences, both the beautiful and the brutal, and turn them into something others can relate to and enjoy. Take a look around. You’ll find I write about tough subjects like divorce, heartbreaking subjects like losing a loved one, and happy subjects like motherhood and marriage! I follow my heart and write when I’m inspired by a “glimmer”.

Enjoy reading, friends!
