HEAR TARYN’S STORY
Design, Dining and Diapers, the original blog, was founded in June 2011, shortly after her daughter was born. She retired her leather-bound notebook, pencil skirts and heels for a life as a stay-at-home mom. Design, Dining and Diapers reflects what she does in a given day: decorating her home, making gluten-free meals, while changing diapers and chasing smiles. Taryn’s blog has evolved over the years from a mom/craft blog to a lifestyle and design blog focusing on home decor, entertaining and everyday life.
Taryn lives in the greater Seattle area with her husband, three little kids and golden retriever. Prior to becoming a blogger, Taryn developed a career in public relations/marketing and has a diverse background in gaming, consumer-tech, clean technology, public affairs and non-profit.
