For the month of February, we have chosen to highlight the incredible Alyssia Moore. She is an astonishing mother of two, wife, friend and inspiration to all. She has amazing taste, which rings true by the looks of her beautiful home & style. We truly adore her for all that she is and more!
Tell us a little bit about yourself...
Well to start we live in Nashville, TN. I work as a doula and birth worker when I have time, now that our son Folger is a little older it’ll be easier to take on more mamas! My husband is a musician, writer, and a session player when he isn’t traveling! Our first four years of marriage were spent traveling together A LOT! Now that we have babes I’m home more, but we still like to go out with papa when we can! Ella’s first trip was to Norway when she was 4 months - it was a blast. We want our kids to experience other cultures, and see different parts of the world from a young age. We are planning on traveling a lot within the next year, so I am getting excited about that! Fun little fact about my family: a lot people ask about our son’s name and why we named him Folger. It’s my moms family name (and yes! It is the Folger coffee family but they actually sold it forever ago haha), and I’ve always loved the idea of using it for a boy! Other things I love are our church community, cooking with friends/family, going on long walks when the weather is good, and spring! It’s my favorite season.
If you could shop at any store for free, which would you choose & why?
Probably Target, because I mean, I go at least two times a week! Haha! Mom life! OR Shop Doen my favorite shop to buy clothing for myself and Ella.
What do you consider your biggest strength and weakness?
Oh man, I would say my biggest weakness would be to overcommitting to things! It’ll be Monday, and I’ll realize that I’ve planned so many things that I’ll have to cancel some just so I can have a minute to relax. It always ends up making me stressed, I would think I would have learned by now! Haha. I would say one of my biggest strengths would be loyalty. I really really love my people - I think that’s how I can get into trouble with overcommitting. I just want my everyone to know I’m there for them, and that I’m sensitive to whatever they are walking through in that season. Life is so much easier when we show compassion, and listen to each other. I know I’m still learning that for sure. How do you balance the two? I think just being honest about what I can handle, and do for others helps a lot!
Do you prefer salty or sweet?
What did you do in the last 24 hours that made someone else's life more enjoyable?
I took Ella to ballet – haha it’s her favorite thing in the whole world. It’s early in the morning, but I’m so glad we do it!Instagram: @lyssmoore
