about michelle

I live in Carrollton, TX with my baby, my boy, my husband, and four fish with way too much personality. I love french fries, living in Texas, making friends, using emojis, watching true crime documentaries, Diet Coke, maps, and my camera. My last name is French, in case you were wondering. It's not as hard to pronounce as it looks,
I promise! Try it out .. CARRY-AIR. Because I do not fear a complicated life, I actually recently took my husband's last name (Papciak), which is originally Polish. And Carriere is now my middle name. So now
90% of everyone I know can only pronounce one of my names! :) 

Don't worry, friends.

WE CAN BE FRIENDS IF YOU LOVE ANY AND ALL OF THE FOLLOWING: COLOR, SURPRISES, STRAWBERRIES, ADVENTURE, AND FINDING EVERYDAY MAGIC EVERY DAY.

Everyone says this, but I really mean it: I've always been into photography. I got my first digital camera for my eighteenth birthday and ever since I've been that obnoxious friend who takes pictures of EVERYTHING. It's nice that these days I feel like I've turned that obsession into something a little more constructive than not letting my husband eat his food or drink his beers before I immortalize their image for instagram. And omg, my poor kids. They do have the most beautiful faces though .. someday they won't blame me for never putting down my camera. I hope!! (Fingers crossed.)

those who do not
believe in magic
will never find it.
