About Me



Hi – I’m Kelli and this is my little blog.  I started blogging because I wanted to document and share the stuff we do in our house.  We do all of our decorating and renovating ourselves – DIY!

As long as I can remember I have loved looking at shelter magazine and decorating my house.  Always living on a budget makes it challenging, but through the years I have made it a priority to cozy-up our place.  Once I discovered that people were writing blogs about decorating their homes, I was hooked!  I felt like I had found paradise! After reading tons of wonderful blogs I decided to join in.  In May 2011 I started Life at 818.  It’s a fun hobby and I have met tons of wonderful people.


 I was born in Michigan, but moved to North Carolina with my family when I was 8, so I grew up in the south {northern baby, southern child}.  My mom started my love of thrift shopping at a very young age.  Growing up we were working class folk living on a budget, but my mom had a great eye for decorating using thrift-store finds that she would refinish herself - she was always ahead of her time.  On the weekends she would drag my two younger sisters and me to the Goodwill, St. Vincent de Paul’s, and every yard sale in between.  To this day one of our favorite things to do when we get together is shop the antique/flea markets.

I have three beautiful children:  Amanda {who is married to my sweet son-in-law, Adam}, Tyler, and Robbie.  In 2005 I married my true love, Ken.  He is a contractor and one of the smartest people I know.  If he can’t fix it/build it/find it, then it probably can’t be done! He came with 3 beautiful children of his own, triplets Rachael, Chelsea, and Wes.  Together we make up one big, crazy family!

We live and work in suburban Atlanta and one day hope to retire to the coast.  Thanks for stopping by our little part of the internet!  Let us know what you think!


PS:  If you are in need of a contractor for renovations on your house and you live in metro Atlanta, get in touch with me and I’ll pass your name along to Ken.
