Welcome to my Life as a LEO Wife

I’m Niki, wife of a detective, and mother of two beautiful children, and stepmom to a bonus kiddo. I love creating cute things, being a mother, and being a daughter of God. Here I’ll teach you to create affordable DIY home decor pieces inspired by high-end items and ways to change your home seasonally on a tight budget. You’ll also find articles on marriage, family life, and Christian topics. I may occasionally write a post on law enforcement family life that can apply to LEO and military families. However, most of my posts are lifestyle articles for every family. I post several times a week, so check back often for new content and leave your email address so you’ll know as soon as new content is posted. Follow us on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter. I can’t wait to teach you to DIY a life you love!
