I started The Learner Observer in 2012 to vent, ramble, and to document my life – isn’t that why everyone starts a blog? Since then, it’s become a place where I get to share the things I love with the world, while occasionally throwing in a recipe, some DIY projects and home decor. You really get a little bit of everything here. If you want to see my design work, check out thalitamurray.com!
I absolutely love Instagram and constantly share what my crazy life as a mom of twin boys is REALLY like. I like real. I like raw. I like honest. If you’re into that, we can totally be friends!
What’s up with the blog name?
I’m a teacher by trade and a visual learner by nature. I would be a professional student if that was a real job, but I like my job as an interior designer too much – and I do get to learn everyday doing that, anyway. After taking part in The Nester‘s 31-day challenge for the first time, The Learner Observer became a blog about my journey as a new home owner trying to make our house a stylish, unconventional, useful, mindful, uncluttered home. I look back on some of those posts now and they are
ALMOST totally embarrassing, but they remind me of a simpler time, when having a candy bowl on my side table was enough to blog about.
I was born on December 25th. Yep. Christmas baby! I still can’t decide whether I like it or not!
I have a degree in Art History and I could easily spend days at galleries and museums, just starring. Art galleries are also a great place to people watch – another thing I love to do.
I find myself saying, “Oh my gosh. I’m THAT mom!” more times than I care to admit, but I’m totally ok with it. Usually.
I am a morning person by nature and love to go to bed early.
I love the connections I’ve made because of my little corner of the internet, and that is ultimately why I blog now. I hope you’ll stick around for my run-on sentences and wordy posts!
