New Here?

Hi there! Welcome to my little corner of the internet. My name is Emma and I run this blog out of the Seattle area with my husband, Michael, and our two sweet and sassy gals, Hadley Rae and River Blue! You can find out all about me here.

The Northwest Momma started off as a hobby and has now grown into my own online journal where I share all the adventures and experiences from my stay at home momma life. Here you’ll find a variety of posts including parenting tips, DIY projects and crafts, healthy and vegan recipes, fun and exciting places to visit in the PNW, and much, much more! The main purpose of this site is to inspire parents and families and show that you can live a healthy, happy life while being kind to animals and to the earth!

However you ended up here, whether it be through Pinterest or Facebook or a random Google search, I’m glad you decided to stop by and check it out. Lemme show you around a bit!
