This blog has been a thought of mine for a couple years now. My husband David and I ran a successful blog for a couple years and before that I had a design blog I contributed to.

I’m hoping this is a place where by sharing my journey and interests, I can extend a hand or hug to those other women or mothers.
Here’s to a new chapter…
