Alexis is a homeschooling mom by day, graphic designer by night. She began unexpectedly homeschooling in 2014 when her oldest would have begun kindergarten. It was life changing, and she wouldn’t have it any other way! She believes God moves us in mysterious ways, and she is always grateful for the many blessings she has received. An amazing husband and three wonderfully crazy kids keep her on her toes. When she’s not teaching her kids, taking them to their many activities, or working on a design project, she likes to unwind with a great book or puzzle. She loves reading, art, blogging, and hanging out with family and friends.
