Hi! I’m Samantha Jo. Wife to Lukas and mommy to Marleigh Jo and Henry (“Huck”) Russell. Lover of Jesus, family, coffee, crafting, camping, words, and wine.

This is my little bubble of the internet where I document the ebbs and flows as we “Grab life by the Gills” – parenting, praising, loving, learning, and navigating every wave we meet along the way.

Stay tuned as I share snippets of our life at home and on the road, essays on motherhood and parenting, tried and true DIY and decor tips (and fails), favorite recipes, simple living techniques, and more.

Thanks for joining me!
