About

 

Hi – I’m Shelby, and welcome to Sweetness in Starlight! I am a thirty-something living in the suburbs of Indianapolis with my wonderful husband, and our doggies (7-year-old puggle, Crosby and 2-year-old frenchie, Chloe – follow them on instagram!). We just bought our first home together so you’ll be seeing lots of home projects over the next few years!

 

A Little More About Me

I grew up about 30 minutes north of Indianapolis in a town called Carmel (which is where we bought our first house!). I pretty much lived there my whole life until I moved away for college. I was pretty adamant on going out of state for college and that I did. I went 8 hours south to the best university ever – The University of Alabama. Roll Tide! Although I loved my experience in the South, but I am a true mid-westerner at heart (or Yankee as my Southern friends say).

I moved back to Indiana to pursue a career in advertising after graduating in August of 2008. Since advertising isn’t huge in Indiana, I decided that it was time to make the move to Chicago. Evan and I lived in the Windy City for about 4 years before deciding to buy our first home together in Indiana. While we love the city, we really always saw ourselves moving back to Indiana and raising a family here. We love our new house and have already started to make it our home.

You will read about my diy projects, stories about my life, family, friends, home decor, travel, food and recipes, and other things that I enjoy. Take a look around and feel free to leave comments on any of the posts! I love to connect with other bloggers.


My Blog Name

The name of my blog is also the name of my favorite song by Matt Wertz. It is the song that Evan and I had our first dance to at our wedding last year. The lyrics are very special to me for numerous reasons, and it became even more special after June 6, 2015.

 

  • Hi Shelby!
    Stopping by to check more out on your blog. Love your blog name by the way. Matt Wertz is one of my all-time favorites! so fun to see another Chicagoan/Indiana blogger on WordPress. Also I have a few “new blogger” questions. Like can Blogger and WordPress play nice? Copyrights for photos? Blog Designing? Etc. I have no idea what I am doing. haha. I couldn’t find your email but if you want to email me that would be great! spokesandsprinkles@gmail.com
