Emily Elling lives downtown Indianapolis, and has been married to her medicine-making, guitar-playing husband Michael for over 10 years. She's a full-time stay at home mom to four unintentionally hilarious children, Piper (7), Nola (5), Gage (2), and baby Paul, born January 2012.
Six months into motherhood, she started her personal blog DesignHER Momma as a way to keep her long distance relatives in the loop with her young family's life. She's been blogging since 2005, and while her blog has evolved over the years, she still loves sharing adventures of raising her large family.
Before becoming a mom, Emily was a corporate interior designer at a large architectural firm located in Indianapolis. Emily still dabbles in Interior Design when she can, but has found her true passion lies in social media and in the mom blogging community. In addition to her personal blog, Emily is a regular contributor on Babble.com's, Baby's First Year blog, where she writes about navigating life with a newborn.
When Emily isn’t hanging out on the internet, she loves to cook real food, read long books, run short distances, and most of all enjoys treasure hunting in thrift shops and garage sales. She loves her yoga pants, green smoothies, her collection of babywearing slings and things, and most of all her crazy family. Her motto: shorten your to-do list, you’ll be happier.
