Hello! I’m Mckenna, a twenty-something believer, boy momma, dirty chai addict and bookworm married to a wickedly handsome Naval Officer and blessed to call sunny San Diego home.

Darling & Sailor is where I share about my life in Southern California, the joys and challenges of motherhood and parenting a special needs kiddo, and the endless explorations and discoveries we have as a west-coast military family.

You can read about how I ended up living this chaotic, beautiful life here, or subscribe to follow along with our adventures by entering your email into the sidebar.


“He will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair.” Isaiah 61:3
