Hi there! My name is Clarissa Earl. I'm a Pacific Northwest native and Midwest girl at heart. I now call the Southwest home with my husband Dale and our yellow lab Zoey. We met on match.com in 2015 (read more about that here) and were married on November 11, 2016 in the Albuquerque LDS Temple. When I married Dale, I also became a stepmom to our now five-year-old twin boys.

My regular gig is working full-time as an HR & Communications Specialist at a local nonprofit. I also blog and do freelance writing on the side. I currently write for Remodelaholic and last year served as an editorial intern with Glitter Guide.

Since moving to the Land of Enchantment, I've developed a mild obsession for all things green chile. I have a fond affinity for ducks, drink at least a Dr. Pepper a day, enjoy watching baseball (Go Dodgers!),  and 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 wife, stepmom, fur mama, and writer. Want to get in touch? Email me at earl.clarissa[at]gmail.com.
