About Me

Hey, it’s me Caroline… spelled CaroLINE, pronounced CaroLYN. I know, confusing, right… I blame my parents.

Are you a Momma looking for a place to feel encouraged and connected? Are you craving community and to know you’re not alone in this whole journey of life and motherhood? Well, look no farther than this blog! I’ve been there (still am!) feeling alone and craving some sort of sisterhood. Why don’t we journey through this together?!?

So, what is LilyMags? It’s a combo of my 2 daughters names of course… Lily and Maggie. Both of my girls are incredibly special (obviously I think that). Lily was born 11 weeks early in October of 2014 (check out here story here). Going through a stay in the NICU is not something I would ever wish on anyone, but it is part of our story and we learned a lot during that time (see my Must Haves for Bringing Home a Preemie). Anyway, 14 months later in January 2016, Maggie joined our family just over 3 weeks early. Her early entry wasn’t as much of a surprise, but we weren’t planning on having 2 kids under the age of 2! The first 3 months of her life are kind of a blur! My family is my second love (Jesus is my first!) I would do anything for them. I started this blog as a way to share my journey of motherhood as well as be able to spend more time at home with them.

In my “me” time though, I enjoy reading, baking and crocheting. I have a Facebook page where I love sharing my crochet creations. Come follow me at LilyMags & Co! My crocheting started as making Octopuses for Preemies (check out this post) and has grown from there. I love creating things for people!

Stay in touch and keep up to date with everything LilyMags has to offer. I’ll add you to my mailing list, but don’t worry, I don’t like sending out a bunch of pointless emails and your email address is completely safe with me!
