Welcome! This blog is dedicated to my family and friends who are family. Since turning forty I’ve turned over a new leaf. I try do the things I have wanted to do but didn’t have the time or money when my children were small, learn from my mistakes- there have been many, and strive to make the most of life with the rest of the time I have left. Some of the changes I have made have been slow and painful (I divorced after 20 years of marriage). I have learned many new skills including teaching myself to chalk paint and making healthier lifestyle choices. And I am hard at work preparing for my husband and I’s future (I am the luckiest girl in the world to have married my high school sweetheart) while enjoying these last few years with my three youngest kids before we become empty nesters. I am excited to share my passions with you! I will be discussing books I’ve read, crafts, recipes, finances, and anything else I feel is important to pass along. I want to thank my husband for encouraging me to start this blog-You are such an inspiration!!
