Get To Know Me

My name is Ivey, and I am a stay-at-home mom (SAHM), family chef, and mompreneur. I love trying new things and making the most out of life.

My motto is:

If you focus on the good and put out positivity, you will get that back in return.

In 2020, I found out I was sick. I suffer from hypoparathyroidism and hypothyroidism.  Both autoimmune diseases have caused me to have stage 3 kidney failure.

Before we bring out the tissues, I have some fantastic doctors and specialists who have high hopes for me and for living a long life. My kidney specialist hopes things can reverse themselves, but currently.. my body wants to go to the beat of its drum.

What Inspired Me To Start Blogging?

This brings me to Making Paradise at Home.

In 2020 Covid-19 hit hard. Due to being sick, my family took a hard hit. We ended up seeing doctor after doctor because of my thyroid and kidney issues, and my family’s only memories were doctor visits.

I’m the family’s matriarch, and if my vibe and energy are low, that bleeds into the family structure. I couldn’t allow that.

So I decided to bring motivation into our home. I started following Pinterest recipes, making family videos and making new memories for my family.

Due to my health, even being vaccinated, I still am in quarantine…. that means MY FAMILY is in quarantine.

As the family’s matriarch, I decided to MAKE PARADISE AT HOME.

I hope you will join us on our journey! 

Meet The Family

Our first Making Paradise At Home photo

circa 2020

This is my lovely wife Natlie and our 2 daughters Madison and Mackenzie.

 They have been my rock and kept me sane when I wanted to throw in the towel.  My wife was there for me when I couldn’t and wouldn’t be there for myself. She showed me a new level of love I never knew before. She NEVER left my side. She was my strength and I am so fortune to have a love like this. 

My family has made my life so much easier to bear and I am grateful and honored to have them in my life.  Yes, we go through trials and tribulations, but if I had to go through any of my woes… I am blessed to have MY FAMILY. They are the reason for my Making Paradise At Home.

We are Making Paradise At Home.
