About Me

I love everything that has to do with celebrations, weddings, bridal showers, birthdays, any event that calls for a party! I'm an event planner at heart and love all the details. I work in marketing, but on the side I love planning parties, home design, traveling, and cooking. I share my love of travel and adventure with my amazing husband Todd and our baby boy, Matthew William.

We met in an apartment building in San Francisco (we were neighbors) and we got married five years later on July 3rd, 2011. We both love the 4th of July so it was the perfect weekend to celebrate our love with all of our friends and family.  My "master piece" event was our wedding (pictures and blog post), it was a four-day weekend extravaganza in Santa Cruz, CA - family and friends joined us from around the world.

Since then I have not been able to give up wedding planning and I haven't stopped crafting... I love helping my friends plan their weddings and all the events that go with this special time. I have a passion for social media and sharing my ideas. I'm a huge fan of Pinterest and Etsy - I wish these sites were around when I was planning our wedding.

In March 2012 we grew our little family by getting a puppy named Mac. Mac is a Maltese/Yorkie (Morkie) with tons of personality and brings us joy everyday. We love the little pup!!

Then, in May 2014 we grew our family again! Matthew William MacKaben was born on May 2, 2014. Our chubby little boy brings us joy everyday! 

Through Beauty Around It I hope to share my crafting ideas, travel adventures, stories, and the beauty that I see in all.
