We love building new relationships with customers, and part of that is letting you all get to know us! Here's a little snip of us...
Kyle and myself (Macey), are lovers of simple. We are high school sweethearts from Carterville High School, and we think it's pretty cool to own a small business in our hometown. We both graduated from Southern Illinois University Carbondale in 2013 and got married on August 10, 2013. We knew we wanted to own a business and work to make an impact in our community, but we didn't know quite how quick that dream would fall into place. On November 1st 2014 we purchased Paw Prints, and later on May 6th 2016 we revamped our store to the current Live Simple Shop. The picture above truly sums up our life, a whirlwind of crazy laughs. We are truly thankful to God every single day for the task that He has given us, and we pray it makes an impact.
A few more notes about us... Kyle loves hunting, St. Louis Cardinals baseball, and grilling up just about anything! I love junking, designing, and decorating. We both look forward to a future in a home of our own with a couple kiddos, a mini pig named Bacon, and a chocolate lab named Rummer. We'll gladly take whatever God has planned though!
We are thankful to have two employees that work for us too...
If you are local and visit our store you may have got slightly confused, we do have two Macey's. Pictured above is Macey "2" our online sales specialist.
Macey attends college at John A. Logan College and Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, and is studying to be a nurse! We are so proud of all her hard work in school and in our store. She loves anything that sparkles, four wheeler riding, movie nights, and babysitting.
Hillary is our newest employee, and fun loving model. She goes to Carterville High School and loves being a part of the dance team. Hillary loves shopping, family time, and Christmas Cookies! We are so thankful for Hillary, and we can't wait to see what is ahead for her!
While our staff is small at the moment we have plenty of support from family and friends! We are truly blessed with the people below, plus more!
