Welcome to The Lovely Latte.  I am Elizabeth, a native Carolina girl currently living in Charlotte, North Carolina. I'm originally from a small town in South Carolina and my husband and I spent a few charmed years living the "big city life" in Hoboken, New Jersey before returning South. I actually started this little blog, at the time titled Life with Elizabeth, when I learned we would be relocating. Connecting with other bloggers helped me stay grounded while learning that sometimes in life, we simply must learn to bloom where we are planted. While I do miss the food, shopping, and hustle and bustle of living so close to Manhattan, I'm grateful for the Southern hospitality of where we live today.

My husband, Corey, and I were married on August 11, 2012 and we welcomed our first daughter, Madeline, in February 2016. I'm a lover of lattes, home decor, fitness, and a good glass of wine shared with a great friend. I'm a former teacher turned curriculum designer and you can read about life in the classroom and instructional ideas at Lipstick, Lattes, and Lesson Plans or visit my Teachers pay Teachers store. I'm currently "cutting class" to spend time with my daughter and working to bring innovative ideas to busy classrooms as well as help busy women and new moms find their way to healthy living and a great fitness routine. You can learn more about that here.  

Welcome! I'm glad you're here.
