Hello Today!

Welcome to my online world. I am excited you’ve stopped by, with my experience & ideas I know I can help you build some solutions that will keep you in control of your home and life.  Together, we can outsmart the frenetic and create simple change and efficiency in your home.  

Here’s a little more about me and my story:

Over the years, in addition to being a wife & mama, I’ve worked in all sorts of places (offices, retail shops, private homes, hospitals, real estate offices, the gym, from my own home, etc.) and in all sorts of roles (sales, secretary, office manager, personal assistant, unit clerk, funeral planner, branding specialist, gardener, organizer, florist, doula, graphic artist, shopper, shipper, holiday decorator and gosh, there is more). This span of experiences has taught me a-lot of a lot about a lot of details. So get ready for resources I am happy to share.

I’ve worked for an amazing array of people, tackled many unchartered assignments, figured out many things, and as a result, have become an invaluable resource. People ask me for recommendations or ideas or solutions for all sorts of problems; and it took years to get to this point- years of looking for ideas, trying products, refining solutions, and lots of mistakes. Lots. Of. Mistakes.

I’ve found clever solutions for the day to day to-do’s and unique ideas for your household and office dilemmas. I get it, even I struggle with those piles of must-do’s. After all, those blind spots are deeply personal.

So let’s figure it out! I’ll help you overcome the weaknesses and develop some practical answers for you to jump those time-taker hurdles. My job is to be the catalyst and provide solutions to get it done.

There are some freebies on the site to make your life easier. My journal has resources in each entry. Be sure you try my Hello Today list, and my Yummy Labels. Consider a pantry clean up/ cleanout class or if you are totally befuddled, I can lead you to peace with a one-to-one consult. We can dig deep to find your “mise en place”.  Together we will put order into your world.

So here is what makes me me:

I am a gardener and have worked in a full shade garden for 16 years.

I am a swimmer, have been since infancy- you know, the throw-the-baby-in-the-pool kind of start.

I love to read. Historical fiction is my favorite, young adult books too. I’m even fond of picking up the books my girlies read as little ones, only to enjoy the simplicity again as an adult. Thank you Kevin Henkes,

I lived in Louisiana for almost 5 years. It was the best experience, and it changed my own friendliness baseline for good.

I collect heart rocks, and search for them on all outdoor ventures.

I cook, I love to read recipes and immerse myself in lessons from America’s Test Kitchen.  

I love decorating and moving and re-hanging pictures and changing it all up once in a while.

Gathering ideas and resources on Pinterest is an avocation.

Of course, I am dog happy.

And like you, there have been heavy hits of loss, sadness, crises, and trauma along with the magical, the unexpected, the peace and good fortune, the joy and laughter.

The bottom line for me is this:

In the day-to-day of this world, and in the midst of all your own mayhem, BE sure to keep the “be’s”:

BE true.
BE kind.
BE thankful.
BE content.
