Hi there! My name is Clarissa Earl. I'm a Pacific Northwest native and Midwest girl at heart. Now I call the Southwest home with my husband Dale, our yellow lab Zoey, and my cat Harper. We were married last November in the Albuquerque LDS Temple and are thoroughly enjoying newlywed life! I'm also a proud stepmom to our four-year-old twin boys.

My regular gig is providing communication and administrative support at a local nonprofit five days a week. I also blog and do freelance writing on the side. I currently write for Remodelaholic and just finished an editorial internship with Glitter Guide.

Since moving to the Land of Enchantment, I've developed a mild obsession for all things green chile. I have a strange affinity for ducks, drink at least a Dr. Pepper a day, and absolutely love country music (despite what I told my classmates back in middle school). When I'm not working or writing, I enjoy baking delicious treats and watching too many TV shows on Netflix and Hulu with Dale.

Life Enchanted is where I document my journey as a new wife, stepmom, fur mama, and writer. Want to get in touch? Email me at earl.clarissa[at]gmail.com.
