Starting a blog always seems like a great idea until you get around to that first post and you wonder how on earth you are supposed to get all of your dreams for this space into a succinct, readable, relatable first post!

Well this is my best shot at doing just that, and I am so glad you are here to read it!

Sure you could go read my About Me page, but I have big dreams and that page will do a lot of changing in the future.  So this is where I am right now as it all begins…and that’s pretty special too.

My husband, Charlie, and I have been married for just about a year and a half…


and we will be parents very soon! If baby shows up on his due date (like that ever happens haha) we are just 6 weeks away from welcoming our son into the world.  We don’t have a name picked out yet, but we couldn’t be more excited!

In addition to a baby on the way, we already have a cat named Nora and a dog named Hank.

Hank is far more photogenic.

Charlie and I met while living in North Carolina.  From there we moved to Florida, and about a year ago we moved to Texas!

So now that you know the short and sweet backstory, let me introduce you to Pompoms and Gingham! (my how times, and names, have changed right?!)

I want to use this space to share all my DIYs, home decor pursuits, recipes, travel and more! As you might guess from the blog name, I am a huge lover of pompom trim and gingham anything! I am also a sucker for seersucker, monograms and buffalo check, but the blog name was getting a little long when I tried to include all those things hahahaha.

Additionally, I am an unrepentant collector of coffee cups and lover of carbs (especially donuts)…and if you are too we should probably be friends!

Does that pretty much sum me up? I hope so! I am sure there are a million and one more things that I could include, but honestly I am impressed if you read this far!  I hope you will follow along for more posts as I share my adventures with you.

Want more? Let’s be friends on Instagram!
