My name is Mariah.
I'm a summer baby born and raised in Seattle, Washington, however when God created me I think He gave me a little extra spontaneity and that has led me to live and travel all across the west coast! Currently I reside in Portland, Oregon with my boyfriend Thomas. I am grateful for his patient heart every day, and I’m convinced he loves having breakfast for dinner even more than I do. There’s no one else I’d rather soulja boy through life with.
I have the mouth of a sailor but the heart of someone who says heck instead of hell. I am a major nerd, my perfect kinda night is take out + board games! I love taking pictures and documenting LIFE (check out @xodearjune to see what I’m up to). Someone called me a manic pixie dream girl once and I’m still not sure how I feel about it. If I could be anywhere in the world I would choose Disneyland. Every time. I’m a huge movie fan, my favorite being Edward Scissorhands. My seven year old sister Mia is my sunshine, she makes my heart skip a whole beat every time I see her.
I have a very real dependency on caffeine, without it I become someone among the likes of Sandy Cheeks when Spongebob wakes her up early from hibernation (kidding, kidding. but not really). And I’m a bit of a hypochondriac, I’ve gone to the ER more times than I can count for situations that were later cured by advil and sleep.
Undoubtedly, my heart has been claimed by Jesus. When I was young Jesus lit a match and started a fire in my heart. He called it passion and told me it would never burn out. My Mom raised me to stand up for myself and those around me, to be brave. Put together how I was created and how I was raised and you’ve got someone who FIGHTS for LOVE.
Through my creativity, my passions, my dark days and my joyous, I am constantly yearning to grow deeper into what can only be named Jesus’ unconditional love. This life is not always easy but I trust that through Him there will always be joy. And there will always be beauty. My hope is to help others find the immeasurable light + love of Jesus, to start that connection between me and you. And I could not be more excited!
I believe that love has the ability to overpower everything else, not because I’m naive but because I believe in a God who tells me so. Sometimes I cry a lot, mostly it’s a happy cry but sometimes it’s not and that’s okay too. I’m a firm believer in living life with passion, and I’d love to hear all about yours. 💕
This is a place where you can expect love, inspiration, comfort, and (let’s be honest) a whole lot of Disney. Thank you for coming along on this adventure with me, and welcome to the wacky!
