Hello and welcome to A Pretty Life Blog!
My name is Jo-Anna and I’m the gal behind this little happy space on the web!
I am a work-at-home mom to my daughter and two sons, and wife to Tobin who is my amazing and supportive husband. We live in the suburbs in Calgary, Canada, but my dream is to one day move out to a tiny little place in the country…that’s where my heart really is.
And in my spare time (ha!) I am also the editor, director, chief, main cook and home decorator here at ‘A Pretty Life’! Five years ago, in October 2011, I created this site as a way to share my love of a simple home life through uncomplicated home tips and fresh & easy recipes. Since that time it has grown into something I am quite proud of and am so happy to be able to share with you.
It is my hope that by spending some time with me you are inspired to add some simplicity and deliciousness into your home and life! To get you started, here is a sample of my most popular and favourite posts! This is a good mixture of some of my recipes and home projects.
- Simple Spaghetti Sauce
- Garlic & Rosemary Roasted Pork
- Peanut Butter Bread
- Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Coconut Dream Cake
- Pumpkin Spice Granola Bars
- How to make an inexpensive and simple fall wreath

Home Life Made Simple
That’s my motto.
I hope you have a chance to browse around and find some inspiration. I hope you love it here!
