I am a 40 something wife, mother & hairdresser. I LOVE being all 3. I have been married to my husband Jeromy for almost 10 years now. I love him more & more each day, & so enjoy the aspect of growing old with him.
I have an older son, Andrew who will be 27 this year. He is in NY city with his adorable girlfriend Annie, pursing their dreams!
My daughter Morgan is 7 & the perfect clone of me. Full of spunk & spirit! I know my Mom is enjoying every moment from her front row perch in the clouds! My baby Wyatt is 4. He swings from being the sweetest boy ever, to a little stinker! I would not change a thing about my children!!
I have been a hairdresser for 18 years. My clients are the most loyal, fun group of women (& men) I could ever hope for. They make my job so exciting & fun! I would not trade my job with anyone in the world.
But I have noticed lately, while reading a lot of other blogs that there is something missing in my life. I find I am doing things for others, but not for myself. So I decided I needed to pursue a passion of mine. I have always loved making my house a home & have always been interested in decor & decorating. I also have always loved antiques & thrift shopping. I stopped doing this for awhile focusing on my growing family & have realized it is something I have always done for me, my enjoyment.
So I got the idea to dive back into it while reading other women's blogs.
For years I educated assistants in the salon. I love to share my knowledge as well as point out that I still don't know everything. I love to learn something new every day & pass it along, so that is what I am going to do.
This blog will be about everything from hand painted furniture, thrifting, DIY projects to whatever else I am feeling @ the moment.
I hope to post original content and photographs, as well as links to other blog ideas I feel I can't NOT share (with credit/consent of course).
I will be publishing almost daily with emphasis on the following:
Before & After (my favorite)
Hand Painted Furniture
Easy to do Crafts
The Occasional recipe/food I love
Helpful Hints as well as Worthless Tips
Cute/funny posts on my kids
I hope you will come along with me on my journey!
