Hello and welcome, I’m Michelle!

I’m a New York girl who has been transplanted to the beautiful state of Virginia.

I am wife to my soldier Mike and Mommy to my two blessings Xander (8) & Elise (2). Together we have survived 2 deployments, lived in three states, and have moved so many times I consider us expert movers! Our life is an adventure and our children are our greatest adventure yet!


Running on Love and Caffeine© is about the journey of Motherhood with a little bit of everything in between.

I love a nice hot latte, the Christmas season, snapping pictures of my little loves & the beauty of nature, entertaining family & friends, DIY projects with my husband, county music, and deep belly laughs.

On this blog, I will share with you my not so ordinary yet beautiful journey through Motherhood thus far, my love for my family, DIY projects, yummy recipes, party planning tips and tricks, kids fashion, bargain shopping, and so much more!!

So sit down, relax, grab a cup of coffee or a glass of wine (judgment-free zone here!) and I hope you enjoy your time at Running on Love and Caffeine, I’m so glad you’re here!
