Meet the Smallsens is a place for millennial parents looking for new favorite recipes, parenting life hacks, and seasonal inspiration. It’s for the food curators, who love to entertain company over meals. I’m here to share my west coast life and recipe ideas you will probably recognize, but with a twist of my own to make them different and special in hopes to make your loved ones smile.



Hello & Welcome! If you’re a new reader, thank you for stopping by. The Smallsens began in 2013 when I met my future husband at a Vancouver Whitecaps game. Fast forward one year later and we became husband and wife and had our daughter Sophia. Here we are 5 years later. I’m married to the most supportive, intelligent, handsome and appreciative partner while raising a curious 4 year old with the wildest of hair. My stories are created with love and authenticity as I explore beauty in the Pacific Northwest. Thank you so much for being here and sharing moments I capture from my every day life.
