Clovally – Lovely & Lively

Written by Carly Gardner O’Brien

Let’s see the world together!

Hey there, fellow adventurers! Carly here, your guide to navigating the wild ride of life with equal parts hustle and harmony. I’m a mom, a wanderlust-stricken explorer, and yes, an ovary-acting fertility warrior currently navigating the thrilling (and sometimes tear-inducing) balance of work, motherhood and health. But wait, there’s more! I’m also a product-wielding product manager, crafting magic in the world of tech, and a dedicated wellness warrior fueling my fire with clean products and a deep curiousity. 

This blog is my open door, where I spill the raw, unfiltered truth about balancing spreadsheets with sunset hikes, building empires with building blocks, and nurturing my well-being while nurturing my dreams. My mission? To inspire you to find your own vibrant blend, to embrace the messy bits (those ovary-acting days!), and to chase your dreams with the same passion you chase that next travel destination.

So, grab your passport and your protein powder, because we’re about to embark on a journey that’s equal parts spreadsheets and soul-searching, product launches and mountain peaks. I’ll be your cheerleader, your confidante, and sometimes your partner-in-laughter (and maybe a few fertility-induced tears).

Ready to paint your own masterpiece? Head over to and let’s explore the world, one honest brushstroke at a time.

Our main mission in life is to see the world. Lucky for me God knew what he was doing when he gave me Shawn. He may be more excited to see the world than I am, which means we are on the same page and the same plane! I am so excited to share our travels together.
