Hello! I’m Christina, the author behind Carolina Charm. I’m the wife to Matt and a coffee fueled mama to two wild minis, Caroline (5) and Thomas (4). I love french fries and overusing exclamation points. I have a passion for gathering friends together, a knack for shopping sale racks, an amazon prime junkie and am a self-proclaimed expert in crockpotting. Despite the many trials our family has weathered, I believe that life is beautiful and it’s worth writing about day after day. This is a space for me to share the moments that make my mama heart spill over, a mix of recipes and more. A lot more. Grab a cup of coffee and stay awhile!

A deeper dive into my story…

I met my husband, Matt, in a bar shortly after moving to Charlotte in 2009. More on that story (here). A year later he proposed on top of a mountain and the following year we said “I do!” That story (here).

That same year Matt decided to hang a shingle and opened his own law firm, The Law Office of Matthew T. Marcellino which is now Marcellino & Tyson. Oddly enough, I also work for a law firm doing non-lawyerly things.

We spent our early newlywed years in our first (cozy little home) before moving to our current home that we love! Full story (here).

Our lives were forever changed for the best when we welcomed Caroline Grace into our family on May 7, 2014. Story (here).

Fourteen months later our hearts further expanded when we welcomed Thomas Dean to our family on July 11, 2015. Story (here). Two months later Thomas was unexpectedly diagnosed with bilateral congenital cataracts and underwent two surgeries in hopes to restore his eye sight. You can read about our wild journey with surgeries, doctor appointments and infant contacts (here).

To keep the crazy going, shortly after my 29th birthday I underwent a prophylactic bilateral mastectomy. You can read about that decision and journey (here).

And that’s our story (so far)!
