About

Emily Charron of Isn't That Charming

My name is Emily Charron and I’m a Michigan-native who lives, works, and plays in the skyscrapers of Chicago with my husband Doug and daughters Gracie and Josephine.

By day I’m a digital marketing manager at one of the world’s top brands, and by night I pen this blog as a creative outlet. Here, I share snapshots of my life, style, travels and creative pursuits.

Isn’t That Charming is aimed to empower women, brighten your day & leave inspired to live a charmed life.  If you’re a reader, I consider you a friend; please feel free to email me at isntthatcharming@gmail.com, or you can find me on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Thank you so much for following along!
