Hi!  I'm Cari.  Koti Beth is my daughter, Dakota Elizabeth. She's a girly girl and an all around awesome person, so it's fitting that I named my blog after her.

I'm a word nerd who has written for brands like What to Expect, Angie's List, United Way, Purina, and Everyday Health.

I also blog over at Everything Pretty and Homesteading in Ohio.

I'm an autism supermom and have three kids.  All three kids are homeschooled.  My oldest is a high school senior and entering his third year of college through dual enrollment.  Yes, he's one of the ones with autism.  It's amazing what therapy can do, amiright?

I love to upcycle. I love glitter. And I will put vinyl on anything that sits still long enough.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you'll follow me on social media so we can connect!
