Writing and creating this blog is an absolute joy for me. I get a little giddy every time I publish, so thanks for being along for the ride. I’m a mother, wife, and freelance copywriter/marketer, who loves fashion, traveling, cooking, reading, gardening (but mostly the part where I buy the plants) and looking at other people’s DIY projects. Right now, I have an unnatural addiction to House Hunters International, Houzz.com and the ever-alluring posts by Design Sponge.

I’m also 40+ and happy to see that there are many beautiful, vibrant and stylish over 40 women who are blogging right now. For me, being over 40 is no big deal (turning 39 was somehow more traumatic). Sure there are changes, but the good parts far outweigh the not-so-good. I’m very happy to be exactly where I am right now.
