Hi there! I’m Blake!
I wear a number of hats, the most important ones being wife to Jeremy and mama to my two girls Pacey and Elliot. I write on a personal blog, where I talk about everything from the big things God is teaching me to my favorite hair products. It’s basically just my little corner of the Internet where I do as I please. I also own a brand and website design company – Magnolia Ink, where I get to join together my passion for helping others achieve their dreams & my love for design to build brands and websites that allow other creatives to confidently go out into the world and build their businesses. I do most of this with one or both children in my lap or at my feet, always attempting to find that perfect work-at-home-mom balance that I’m pretty sure actually doesn’t exist
Married? Have children? I’ve been married to my sweet Jeremy for five years, and we have two daughters, Pacey (3) & Elliot (9 months).
What is your Baton Rouge go-to coffee spot? There’s a CC’s Coffee House about a stone’s throw from our house, so that drive-through and I are really good friends.
What is your favorite Baton Rouge hidden gem? I don’t know if it’s so much “hidden”, but we love the Main Library on Goodwood. It’s so beautifully done and has so many things to do, both for kids and adults.
What’s your favorite Baton Rouge king cake? Ambrosia’s Zulu king cake. Holy cow, y’all. Chocolate, coconut, pralines, all the things. It’s so good.
What is your favorite Baton Rouge restaurant? Ichiban. Jeremy and I are sushi lovers, and a little bit of sushi snobs too – so this is one of the only places we’ll eat sushi at and one of our favorite date night spots.
On a typical Saturday night where would we find you in Baton Rouge? I wish I had a cool answer for this, but the reality is that I’m typically in bed binge watching whatever show Jeremy and I are hooked on at the moment. When we do get out, it’s typically to grab dinner with friends somewhere with good drinks and a fun atmosphere.
