Well hello, you! (said in my best Moira Rose voice) 

My name is Clarissa Earl. I'm a Pacific Northwest native and Midwest girl at heart who now calls the sunny Southwest home. I live in Albuquerque, NM with my husband Dale, our toddler son Henry, and our crazy yellow lab, Zoey. 

Dale and I met on Match.com in 2015 and were married in the fall of 2016 in the Albuquerque LDS Temple. When I married Dale, I also became a stepmom to our nine-year-old twin boys, Aiden and Brennan. The boys live a few hours away from us with their mom and grandparents but we're able to visit them at least twice a month. 

I work full-time in marketing and communications at a local community foundation. Between the pandemic and becoming a new mom, I haven't written very much over the past few years. In the past, my work has appeared on RemodelaholicGlitter Guide, and The Everygirl. I'm trying to figure out how to prioritize time to work on my personal creative work. It's tough! 

Since moving to the Land of Enchantment, I've developed a mild obsession for all things green chile. I drink at least a Diet Coke or Diet Dr. Pepper a day, am obsessed with the color grey, love watching baseball (Go Dodgers!), and thoroughly enjoy listening to folk and country music despite what I told my classmates back in middle school. In my free time, I enjoy baking, watching too many TV shows with Dale, and casually exploring the outdoors with my family.

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