My name is Samantha; I am a born + raised New York native, who lived for a short time in North Carolina, now living back in Rochester with my online date boo, turned husband. We have an almost 3 year old daughter + a 1 year old son.

When we bought our first home last year, I wanted to make an effort to create an atmosphere filled with joy, purposeful, and intentional living. Have a home where all are invited and where I make almost healthy meals. Where we create traditions and make memories. A place where we strive for simple in the midst of chaos and, of course, laugh constantly.  That’s how I wanted this blog to feel, hence the name House of Caruso.

House of Caruso is a place where I share bits and pieces about anything from my family moments to creative ideas to daily inspiration. I want it to be a place where I connect with other mamas, mamas to be, or soon to be mamas. I think having a tribe of mamas is so important, especially when motherhood can be difficult at times #ittakesavillage. I think we expect Motherhood to be like a solo trip to Target with all the things in our cart, but at times, feels like a trip to Wal-Mart where there’s only two lanes open and 200 people waiting to check out (trust me…you are not alone).

Thank you for stopping by. I’m so glad you’re here!
