Who we are

Hi there! We’re Aaron and Emi, the creators of the The Floral Wreath Blog. Welcome! Our vision with this website is to be a place to get delicious, all-natural (but still pretty!) recipes, along with sprinkles of real life encouragement and inspiration in the areas of family, travel & home design/repair.

Aaron and I have been married since 2011 and we have 3 littles; a 6 year old son, 5 year old daughter, and 2 year old daughter. They’re awesome and crazy and always an adventure. We love each other deeply, and family time is super important to us. Emi stays home and homeschools the kids, and Aaron gets up crazy early every morning to get to work (he's a laser engraver) so he can be home around 4 every day to have family time.

About Naked Bakes

Emi has had a love of baking for a very long time, and around the time their second child, Kaiya, was turning 1, Emi had the strong desire to start her own home bakery. She called in Frosted Bakery, and had several orders, including an ongoing bi-weekly order for Aaron’s work. As the kids got older, and another baby was added to the mix, Frosted Bakery took a bit of a backseat. Her love of baking has always remained, however, and she’s always trying to improve her craft. A couple of years ago they made the switch to an all-natural, artificial dye/flavor/preservative-free lifestyle for their kids (check out the reason why here). Baking became even more complicated for Emi; it felt wrong to be making baked goods for other people that contained artificial dyes, flavors, and preservatives, when she wouldn’t even feed her own family that stuff! It was through this that Naked Bakes was born. Naked Bakes is an up-and-coming (hopefully) Home Bakery located out of their home in Colorado. It is Emi & Aaron’s desire to help other families make the switch to all-natural food, and their hope is that sharing delicious, all-natural recipes will help make that switch easier for families. They fully believe that life is about balance; a healthy lifestyle can include occasional, delicious, and indulgent treats, but you don't have to compromise on quality and safety of ingredients to have them.
