Howdy! Welcome! My name is Nancy. I’m a cat loving, kid loving, family loving 50-something year old living in a small town in Southern New Jersey. My most happy place, when I’m not busy working, at the local elementary school, is on my porch with a book or a sketch pad. I do my best to live healthy (although I do have a weakness for most baked goods), exercise, and generally stay positive. Sometimes keeping that positive outlook requires a good sense of humor (and maybe a glass of wine 😉).
My husband (D-man) and I both make our living within the crazy wonderful world of public school education. Our goal for the past twenty-something years has been to live simply, focus on what is truly important and strive to live within our means..most of the time. We’ve been blessed with two great kids, a college junior (Miss Dee) and a recent college graduate (Mr D). This means that in the evenings I deal with young college type people and during the day I’m surrounded by elementary school students. I also volunteer weekly at a nearby senior center so this means that I tend to see life from many different perspectives. That can get pretty interesting!!
This blog is meant to be a creative outlet, a chance to share some of the little things that brighten my days as well as any great tips or ideas that cross my path. It is also a happy place for the most part because there is already way too much negativity in the world. Finally, and most importantly, it’s a place where I can connect, learn, and be inspired by all of you!
So thanks for stopping by. Hang out. Put your feet up and stay a while!
