Welcome to The Velvet Dwelling! I'm Mara, and I'm so glad you found your way here. I'm the voice behind the blog and can't wait to get to know you along the way! I'm a twenty-something southern gal from East Tennessee, but I've got big city dreams. I got married to my best friend, Steven, on New Year's Eve of 2017 and we have a goldendoodle named Tilley (you'll probably  see her make a few appearances over on Instagram).

And just a few fun facts:


I'll always order pasta if it's on the menu.

I work for Target.

My go-to coffee order is cold brew with almond milk and caramel.

I love musicals and jam out to them in my car or while I'm cleaning.

I'm naturally super messy.

My family is everything to me!

I'm all about some girl power.

I believe that the easiest way to live a fulfilled life is to support one another.
