About Me

Hello, love!
My name is Erin, and Elegant and Enamored is my little brain child. Well, really it's just my brain, online.
I was born in Michigan and moved to Ohio when I was 2. It's always funny to have people ask me what it's like being a wolverine in buckeye country... And all I have to say is Go Bucks!

I grew up dancing and doing theatre.
{My personality in stills}
I'm obsessed with musicals and have been performing in community theatre shows since I was 11. Theatre  and music are a big part of my life and interests.

A little more about me...
My birthday is January 11th. I'm a Christian. I don't like chocolate unless it's paired with peanut butter or mint. I can't spell. I love animals. I love clothes. I sing. I prefer reading over a lot of things. I have a really tight family. They can't spell either.

I fell in love and married my high school sweetheart, Jacob.
{we were babies!!!} 
We were marching band nerds together. He is a year younger than me and with me being a senior and Jake being a junior, I had to snatch his handsome self up before he grew into his shoulders.

We've been together since 2004 and tied the knot in November of 2009.

Jake is Ohio born and raised.
He is into music and video games but spends most of his time juggling work and school. He is currently applying to med school!
Jake also just finished his military career after being in the National Guard for 6 years. I blogged through his year long deployment from September 11, 2011-August 30, 2012.

Jake's birthday is October 6th. he's a Christian. He's an identical twin. He loves him some chocolate milk. He prefers computers to books... More specifically he prefers taking apart computers to books. He's a tech fanatic. His favorite candy is Mike and Ikes. He never rushes to make any decisions. He is a momma's boy, and proud of it. His family is really big, but amazingly close.

Jazon is our little boy. 
He was born April 17th, 2014. He is full of energy and independent. He loves 'petting' his 'Sher' and 'Meow'.  He is a big boy and uses a puddle jumper in the pool. He can tell you what almost any animal says. He is an alligator during diaper changes and will stop at nothing to get his hands on a ball. 

Ezekiel was born in May of 2007. He is a Polydactyl cat with 2 extra toes on his front paws. Zeke either has a really bad attitude or a dry sense of humor. He likes to knock things off of desks, counters, dressers, coffee tables... Basically if it's movable, he'll get it on the ground. He is obsessed with hair ties and elastic headbands and will drag them all over the house. He also loves to drink from our leaky tub faucet, get upon the bed while we're sleeping and smash his soaking wet head into our faces.... We love him.

Asher was born January 27th, 2011. He is an Italian Greyhound and he's quite a handful. He broke his leg when he was 5 months old. His half hour outbursts of crazy puppy are immediately followed by 2 hours of sleeping like the dead. He loves sleeping in, being outside, and He loves giving kids kisses. He loves late night drinks and snuggling under the blankets.

About the Blog
Enamored and Elegant has undergone a few transformations. Wedding Planing Memoirs was the original name and consisted of exactly what the title says. I blogged as a journal to document my wedding planning. After the wedding I changed the name to Dishes and Wishes, thinking something domestic sounding would reflect my married state.
I settled on Enamored and Elegant to state my love of my husband and my idol Audrey Hepburn and all things old Hollywood..
A little surprising, maybe, but true.
I adore my husband and my love for him grows daily.
Audrey Hepburn is the essence of the word 'elegant'.
