Hi there! I'm Emily Ley. I got my first name from my great grandmama and my last from that super cute frat boy in college. We share it with our little boy, Mr. Brady Ley. The truth about me is that I have a background that has nothing to do with any of this. I ran the city ballet for a bit and dabbled in non-profit fundraising. After earning a few expensive degrees, I married that frat boy and started really following my love for design. I began designing many years ago - with a box of colored envelopes and the fanciest fonts on the block. And here we are! The Emily Ley brand has grown into something that sets my heart on fire.
I don't design all of this just because I love gorgeous monograms or fresh, preppy patterns and colors. Don't get me wrong, I'll take a crisp circle monogram on just about anything (just ask my husband!) but really this shop is about making life just a little sweeter.
We're all busy. Mamas, business women, creatives, friends, wives, sisters, daughters, pig-tail brushers, tailgate hostesses, PB+J makers, tightrope walkers and... I'll be darned if I don't make the best blueberry poundcake this side of the Mason Dixon (thanks, Mama!). But that's beside the point. At the end of the day, it's about simplicity. Let's simplify life so that we can take care of our need-tos and focus on our want-tos. Let's ditch that standard of perfection and embrace a simpler, more family-focused lifestyle. Let's focus on what really matters. And let's have a little more fun!
"Wherever your treasure is, there your heart will be also" - Luke 12:34. For me, my treasure is my faith, my family and giving back. My goal with the Emily Ley brand is to help you simplify and enjoy your treasure just a little bit more. If you ever need a thing, please feel free to drop us a note!
