I posted this meme the other day and captioned it with, “Siblings of special needs children are unsung heroes. I’m always in awe of my four who love and care for our sweet Cece in ways that are truly well […]

I’m Mary Rose...wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, die-hard AZ Wildcat alum, and a girl after God’s heart. A self-proclaimed doodler, friends often told me growing up that I should have my own line of cards. A journal and some pretty pens are all I need to get lost in my thoughts. The written word has always moved me; Bible verses, poems, and song lyrics are what inspire my work.
A few of my favorite things: The Sound of Music. Rainy days (if I can just cuddle in bed). Coffee. Conversations with my best friends. All things Arizona Wildcats. Falling into bed after a long, exhausting day. 90's Hip Hop. A good song. Big, loud gatherings with my family. Wine. Tacos. Dresses with pockets. My amazing husband and five beautiful children. There’s not much else in life that compares.
