Thanks for stopping by!

Please allow me to tell you a little bit about myself.

I have been through a lot of changes over the last few months:   After having worked outside the home for 11 years, I am now privileged to be able to be a stay at home wife and mom.  We have also moved 500 miles away from all of our family and friends to a place where I don’t know a single soul.  A few weeks after we got settled into our new home, our daughter started college, over 10 hours away, UGH.  I haven’t quite known what to do with myself since she left.  Our son ‘flew the coop’ a few years ago, immediately after high school, to join the military.  Although that was difficult for me, this seems to be a little harder, given all the other changes in my life at this time.  Needless to say, I feel a little lost.  My husband and I are now finding ourselves fitting into the  “empty nester” category more so than any other.

It is because of this new phase of my life, that this blog was born.  I’d like to share some ideas that will hopefully be of interest to you:

  • money saving tips
  • simple, economical recipes
  • helpful household hints
I look forward to hearing from you!
