ABOUT the Creator of Plum branch home

Hello, I’m Molly!

I’m a wife, lifestyle blogger, and recipe developer who cooks like she doesn’t have to clean the dishes. I live just outside Nashville, Tennessee with my husband and our Doberman Pinscher. When I’m not working on PBH you’ll find me sipping coffee, reading Southern Living magazines, watching sitcoms, attending community events, and exploring the outdoors.

I created this online space, back in 2022, for women to find a community of others focused on the ministry of making a house a home and living a slow, intentional life. It’s a place to step out of our frantically paced society, slow down, and make peace with the slow, simple life we desperately crave.

what I believe


You can make any space feel like home, you just have to add a pinch of love and a dash of intention


If everyone had a sourdough starter they’d understand why we’re always whipping up treats


If we don’t intentionally choose to slow down, our bodies will choose the time for us

These are a few of my favorite things

oat milk cappuccinos, croissants, sit-coms, date nights with my hubby, country music, snuggles with our Doberman, Southern Living Magazines, hiking, road trips, earthy colors, old cookbooks, gardening, and of course anything sourdough!

Fun Facts About Me

🌽 I grew up in north eastern Indiana on a hobby farm with horses, goats, chickens, ducks, rabbits, cats and dogs

💍I married my high school sweetheart, Tyler, at age 20 (best decision of my life)

👩🏻‍⚕️during college I became a certified holistic nutritionist with plans to attend med school but later switched my focus to communications after starting a blog in 2020

🐶We have a Doberman Pinscher named Moose

🚐 my hubby and I DIY converted a cargo van -> camper van and traveled the entire lower 48 USA states on a budget both full-time and part-time

🎥 we documented our travels on YouTube which turned into a travel content creation business where we worked with tourism boards

❌ After we stopped traveling full-time and stepped away from our biz, I deleted all social media and took a 12 month break

✈️ I’ve explored Cape Town, South Africa and London, United Kingdom

🥾 slipping into hiking books and exploring mountains brings me so much joy

☕️ I LOVE coffee especially oat milk honey cappuccinos

📖 Reading personal development books has been one of my favorite hobbies since college

🥘 I’ve been cooking ever since I could stand on a stool and help my mom. It’s my life long love

🥐 I’m obsessed with sourdough baking, my sourdough starter’s name is Winston (from New Girl)

📺 if watching sitcoms could be a hobby, it would be mine (the BEST = Friends, New Girl, and King of Queens)

🏢 The first time we visited Nashville I told Tyler, “we’re going to live here someday, I don’t know how, but I have a feeling”. 2 years later we found ourselves calling middle Tennessee home!
