The Brave Life is all about living your most creative and joyful life, in whatever way that manifests for you.  For me, that means following my curiosity, chasing after my big (and little) dreams and goals, inviting creativity into my life on a daily basis, and seeking joy that feeds the soul.

I'm Liz, nice to meet you!  You can find me always working on one renovation project or another, creating features for South Sound Magazine and 425 Magazine, and photographing wonderful humans + weddings.  Oh yeah, and doing that mom-life thing on top of it all.  As you can probably tell, I tend to fill my plate with maaaybe too many things?  It's fine, you guys!  I'm in therapy.

I started this blog (as Delightfully Tacky back then) in 2008 after discovering an online community of bloggers sharing inspiring things and decided to join in on the fun. I blogged about everything from decor, recipes, lifestyle, cocktail recipes, and all kinds of things that inspired me.

Nowadays things are more casual around here. I blog mostly about my renovation projects, candid life, thoughts on being a human (and raising a human), and the occasional outfit.  Like really occasional because, let's be real, most days I'm in jeans I haven't washed in I don't even know how long, and a shirt that I probably pulled out of the laundry hamper.  I believe in living life with passion + creativity, hunting dreams with reckless abandon, and reveling in the beauty life gives us on a daily basis and I hope to share some of that here on this blog! 

I currently live in Tacoma, Washington with Dan, my husband, Dusty, our Corgi pup, and a tiny human who is hilarious and a great dancer.  His name is Jack.  We live in little house that we're fixing up and making into a home. In addition to writing, photography and, a myriad of other projects, I spend my time at home, drowning in Corgi fur and working on the computer while trying to keep my houseplants and son from dying.
