Welcome to hotc
if you love seasonal living, all things coastal & cozy, and you’re a homebody, you’re in the right place!
Hey y’all, I’m Hope! I’m a wife, a dog mama, a homebody, a book hoarder, a planner lover, and a social media manager for a local small business!
My little family and I live on the beautiful coast of North Carolina! I enjoy nothing more than being at home, reading a book, watching a ball game, or enjoying a slow Sunday morning.
I also love beach days, a good cup of coffee, watching a seasonal movie, and planning! If you know me you know I love anything in a floral pattern and I listen to Taylor Swift, a podcast, or a good lofi playlist while I work.
