Life is Better When Shared

It Takes A Village

Hi I'm Krystal!

Writing and taking pictures has been a part of who I am since I was a tiny 4th grader with a disposable camera and a #2 pencil.

At This Moment

Yesterday is in the past,

Let's be Friends!

Welcome to the online journal & Shop of writer, photographer & community builder Krystal Donovan-Festerly - hey that's me! It's great to meet you.

I created this space back in 2012 when I first became a mother as an outlet from a lonely season of life.

Over the years this space has grown and evolved as I’ve navigated some of the hardest and most challenging things imaginable, all the while starting a new business, hosting gatherings, and executing exciting jobs with brands I love and admire. As naturally as the seasons change, this space has continued to evolve into a place where I come to share my thoughts, recipes, and goodies with you.

So please say hello, I’d love to hear from you!
