starting somewhere

Updated: Mar 9, 2018

"Please start a blog for me." Said nearly everyone I knew. Perhaps for the longest time it meant going out of my comfort zone. Or maybe I wasn't ready to do it for me. But sometimes the greatest risk we can take is the first one.


For as long as I can remember I've been a writer. A crafter. A photographer. A lover of the kitchen. An event planner. An organizer. Attention to the details is in my blood. I come from a family where we all have some creative juices running through us. A painter, graphic designer, wood worker, website builder, chef, writer, the list goes on.

When your imagination is running wild, you might as well grab your sneakers.

Perhaps part of what's held me back from starting this is the entire concept that - how many more blogs and websites do you want to subscribe to? I probably have a dozen that live simultaneously in my inbox, which may or may not get opened depending on my mood. That said, I've always felt that the majority of recipes, home projects, style guides, [whatever, lets be honest] contain too many weird ingredients that you can barely pronounce, let alone find; products that though beautiful, are wildly expensive for the every woman; and who honestly has time to create a 7 course dinner while working full-time, planning a wedding, traveling for work, getting the gym, walking the dog, and are constantly renovating your house? Not sure about you - but I don't.


That said, I hate sacrificing. I want to have the healthiest and most delicious meal, in 30 minutes. I want to have a beautiful brand new kitchen, for half the cost. I want to take something old and make it new again instead of buying something. And more than that, I want to be able to share it, so you can know that you can do it too.


I look forward to sharing what works, [and sometimes what doesn't] and my life pretty little life with my pup and my man, in the city by the sea.
