“The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common things.”
-Henry Ward Beecher

Hi! Tara here. Momma to 3 huge eye balled little humans who’s a big fan of how handsome her husband Matthew looks with facial hair, reading approximately 8 million reviews on an item before I buy it, and staying up way too late every single night.

Our family lives in Southern California where I never have to be cold again after getting my Graphic Design degree from BYU - Idaho (best school ever) and a donut shop that’s open 24 hours. I love my babies and their dad. I am honored to be their momma and wife. And I love our little life here.

Rad & Happy has been evolving since 2010 as my creative outlet that has turned into an extension of who I am and what I love. From something as simple as a beautifully written joke, to spreading joy and gratitude and connecting with so many incredible people, this venture of mine has turned into something I love with my whole heart.

Ultimately I am just so humbled and grateful you’re here! Thanks for helping make all my 5th grade, gel pen loving, doodling up and down the sides of assignments self’s dreams come true.
