Charlie’s favorite spot.

When I decided to start blogging, I struggled with a theme. My writing in college was prolific (if not cringe worthy at times) and I ached to have a creative outlet again. I thought about strands connecting past writing and about what I treasure most theses days. It didn’t take long before it struck me quite simply – home.

I grew up in a loving family where great value was placed on home. We cooked and ate together every night, snuggled on the big bed listening to my Mom read “Little House on the Prairie” and “Nancy Drew” books for the hundredth time, and went on pioneering adventures in the backyard.

Now, I love to make home for my little family. After a long day, slicing onions for a sauce is as therapeutic to me as a good soak in the tub. My favorite evenings are spent snuggled on the couch with my husband, JD, and our two 65 pound lap dogs wading through our Netflix queue and sipping cocktails. It’s not glamorous, but it’s challenging, rewarding, and full of so much life.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing a moment of your day with me as I embark on the very humbling pioneering adventure of creating home and life, martini in hand.
