About Me

gardens - Version 2

20-something living in Louisville. Passionate about Christ, hospitality, and classic style.

I love helping people make their lives more beautiful- through planning a lovely event, chatting with them about life over coffee, or pointing them to Jesus.

I married my husband Scott on July 11, 2014. He’s a full-time seminary student and is studying at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary before entering the Navy Chaplain Corps. We welcomed our first child, Allie Rebecca Cope, in September 2015!

I believe in blogging authentically- read more about that here.

Why This Side of Paradise?

Two reasons. One,  I love how it evokes Fitzgerald and the beautiful prose of the jazz age.

Two, I truly believe we are living on this side of paradise. Or rather, in between two paradises: the garden of eden (genesis 2:8)  and the new heaven and new earth (revelation 21:1). This world isn’t perfect, but by God’s grace I’m living to enjoy each sweet moment, looking forward to the day faith is turned to sight.
