My name is Diana Smith. From birth until I was 16 years old, I lived in Southern California. My junior year of high school, my family moved to Utah. Right after high school, I met my husband. We dated for a year and I got married at 19! It still is pretty crazy how young I was. After 2 years of marriage, we had our first baby. Her name is Olivia and she is now 3. Then 16 months later, we had our second. His name is Harrison and he is now 2.
I started my blog right after I got married in 2008, mostly not really knowing anything about the blog community back then, but just loved to document our life together. Once babies came, it was only natural to post about them. I started my shop Livy Love Designs right after my daughter was born because I wanted to design cute prints for her nursery. Friends and family saw them and suggested I start a shop. I love running a shop online and creating artwork for others. I was surprised how well I did and the income I made really was worth my time and effort building my little business. Early this year, I realized I wanted so much more for my life. I began working out and cutting out so many foods which allowed me to lose almost 100 lbs. I want this blog to be a way to help me share my experience that so many people can relate to.
