Welcome to Luxe…With Kids!
Here you will find tons of advice and first hand experience on how to live well with your children, from family friendly style & home to travel & activities for the modern parent.
I am Candace. I am a Houston based stay-at-home-mom to the most wonderful little boys. My husband, besides being ridiculously handsome, is the most kind and loving husband and father in the world. Seriously, I am one lucky girl, and I know it. I am grateful for this beautiful life and I strive to enjoy every day. E-mail me anytime at candace at luxewithkids dot com.
Our family philosophy is that you can live the good life with your kids in tow, you just have to find the right places, brands, and products to help you do so. And that is why I’m here! We love trying new things, going to new places, eating out, meeting new friends, and, above all, we love to spread the joy by sharing our positive experiences with others.
We are originally from the midwest: I grew up in a small town outside Chicago, and my husband is a Hoosier from Indiana. We met and lived in Chicago until his work took us on an unexpected (yet amazing) family adventure to St. Louis, then the San Francisco Bay area, and now to the Lone Star state! These large family moves have been quite a challenge at times, but the benefit is that we’ve been able to experience several different cities and all they have to offer.
Before I had the opportunity to stay home full time with my boys, I had a dynamic career in marketing and consulting, and I still offer my creative services on selected part-time contract positions. Between my time with my children, my health & wellness routine and and being able to use my mind on strategic projects, I feel like the most life-balanced I’ve ever been.
Please know that at times I may receive compensation for posts through affiliates (and our site does include affiliate links), direct compensation, or through free product, but my opinions are all mine – all the time. I am committed to being a sincere, genuine, and trusted mama friend for you. If I don’t LOVE it, I don’t share it, plain and simple. I’m a proud member of rewardStyle, PopSugar Select, Massive Sway, and Social Fabric.

Hope you enjoy reading!
(This family photo was taken by Christi Minter in Houston on a beautiful fall day. I met Christi one day at a DEFINE class and fell in love with her photography. I’m so thrilled with the way she captured our family. Be sure to reach out to her if you are in the Houston area. Thank you, Christi!)
