Hey Friend! I’m Tessa and I’m happy to meet you. I recently started Our Blessed Abode because I am passionate about living a beautiful and thriving life. To me, this means being surrounded by beauty inside my home and out. It also means sharing my life with beautiful people.

My amazing hubby and I grew up in a very small town in rural Ohio – (we’ve known each other since fifth grade) – but we recently found a new home in the beautiful state of North Carolina. Together we have four terrific sons, one beautiful daughter-in-law and one sweet grandson.

When I’m not spending time with my awesome family I love visiting the beach, gardening, and searching thrift stores, flea markets and antique malls for my next DIY project or makeover. We recently moved into our new home in Raleigh so I have an abundance of creative ideas and dreams. We’re even trying our hand at a little “farmsteading.”

I’m truly living my dream.  My hope is that you will join me on this journey and maybe find a little inspiration along the way.

Design Your Life and Live Beautifully!
