Hello and welcome to Red Oak!
I’m Kelly and I am a wife to my Texan-born husband and answer the name of mama to my almost-kindergartner, Greyson. We’ve called California home for the past six years and in the fall of 2020 we made a big move back to my husband’s hometown of San Antonio, Texas to be closer to family as we welcome our little girl, Olivia! We’re so blessed to have this opportunity; to purchase our first home, do life alongside our family and friends, and embrace the day-to-day moments life has to offer.
Life on Red Oak is a cultivation of what feeds my soul: honest motherhood, casual coffee talks, my love for interiors, and sharing the recipes that nourish my little family. My hope is that you find yourself inspired to cultivate what stirs and shakes you to live out your best life.
Red Oak Lettering
When I’m not writing here on the blog, you can find me over at my lettering shop Red Oak Lettering.
Modern Calligraphy & Design
The inspiration behind my shop began in 2017, a year after my son was born. After spending some time as a stay-at-home-mom, I began noticing that I felt as though I was beginning to lose a part of myself to the demands of newfound motherhood. So, one day I took it upon myself to find one thing that I enjoy – to rediscover a little passion of mine: lettering.
After some time putting pen to paper, I eventually I took a leap of faith and made the decision to launch my very own lettering shop on Etsy. I had no idea what I was doing, but I found that within that first year I learned so much about myself, the ins-and-outs of running a small business, and finding a work-life balance that made me feel whole.
Today, I am so proud of what Red Oak Lettering has become. I now provide modern calligraphy and design services for all occasions and events. The purpose behind my shop is to make gifting personalized, fun, and convenient.
