When I’m not painting signs…
I love hanging out with my dogs & my husband!
Hi! My name is Taylor and I currently live in Chandler, Arizona, however I am originally from Seattle, Washington. Growing up I spent my time riding horses, playing basketball, and swimming! I went to the University of Washington for undergrad where I met my now husband playing a game of pick-up basketball! We started dating about two years later, and the rest is history.
After undergrad, we relocated to Phoenix. A few days after getting to Phoenix, we adopted our first dog. We rescued a cattle dog mix and named her Bailey after the book, “A Dog’s Purpose.” It’s our favorite book! Bailey is such a sweet, loving, and independent girl. She had the most energy of any puppy, so we would constantly take her hiking. On one of our hikes, my now husband proposed! The story is so sweet! My husband asked me to take a picture of all of us, so I picked up Bailey and as I turned around my husband was down on one knee.
As we started planning our wedding, I started learning how to handletter. I ended up handlettering all the signs for my wedding and I absolutely fell in love with it. Throughout the planning of the wedding, we adopted our second puppy. We rescued a (mostly likely) black lab/greyhound mix, and she already had the name Ellie. It was perfect because that was the other girl name from “A Dog’s Purpose” and what we had planned on naming her anyway. It was definitely fate! Ellie is the sweetest, most protective, snuggle bug! We loved taking the girls hiking, to the park, and swimming!
About a year later, my husband and I adopted our third dog, Maximus. A coworker of my husband had a family member who had German Shepard puppies. She begged and begged him to go see one, so when we finally decided to look at them Maximus was left. It definitely worked out perfectly. We still take him to go see his mom and some of his siblings every once in a while. Maximus is definitely the baby of the family, who always wants a snuggle or a pet. He is a gentle giant who loves playing fetch with his frisbee. Our dogs are definitely our children, and I don’t know what we would do without them.
For fun, my husband and I love going to the gym and working out! We also really enjoy watching and playing sports. Our favorite is definitely basketball. We usually play together every weekend. We also like going hiking, watching movies, and taking our dogs to the park.
Since I mostly work from home, our dogs are my little assistants! They actually were the inspiration behind MEBCalligraphy. The initials M.E.B. stands for each of their names, as well as “Make Everything Better.” My husband came up with this and I absolutely love it! “Make Everything Better” can have so many different meanings, such as a reminder to you to make everything better if you don’t like the way something is. However, it also be a reminder to you of things that make everything better in your life, such as your dogs, kids, job, husband, wife, and more!
Thank you for taking the time to get to a little bit about know me, my family, and MEBCalligraphy. I hope to get to know you as well!
I hope that you enjoy a picture of my pups. They also thank you for stopping by!
