Hello, and thanks for clicking over. I’m Andrea Howe, a native Californian and blogger living in Orange County with my 3 kids and husband of 19 years.  I love spending time with friends and family, coffee, road trips, chips & salsa, books, and digging deeper in my faith.

I also love to cook healthy food that’s simple and easy to make, and really enjoy sharing my successes and failures with my readers. For years I worked in the fashion industry and have always loved getting dressed, so I also enjoy sharing non-fussy, approachable style tips. Some days I feel like I’ve got mothering down, and other days I feel like I’m doing it all wrong, but in all things I strive for progress, not perfection, and enjoy sharing the ups and downs of mothering with you. Whatever your interests are, may you find a little bit of joy, and a heaping dose of realness here on these pages. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy, and if you wish to chat, please drop me a line at andrea@howewelive.com.

Andrea’s work has been featured on Disney, Yahoo!, Real Simple, Apartment Therapy, Brit + Co., Buzzfeed and ABC News. She is a regular contributor at Babble and has partnered with numerous brands to create meaningful, organic content to expand brand recognition.
