Hi, I’m Krystal, and I write Healthy Happy Thrifty Family blog from beautiful Colorado Springs, Colorado! I started blogging back in 2010, shortly after having my first child. This blog name with a new, fresh design came in 2015. You can still find a selection of my favorite older posts in my archives. Prior to raising my family, I spent several years working as math teacher in K-8 schools. I now home school my children and work part time as a college math instructor (along with blogging, social media pursuits and raising backyard chickens).

My sister Kelsy has recently started to contribute to the blog. She’s a math teacher turned stay at home mom to my seriously handsome nephews! You can check out her posts here.

Thank you for reading!
