I am a 30-something housewife and I’ve never been happier. After receiving a bachelors degree in Fine Arts and then trudging through many different jobs in many different fields (none of them utilizing my degree), my amazing husband has granted me my lifelong wish of staying home to be the domestic professional I’ve always wanted to be. I spend my day with my two dogs, Olive, 6, and Emmet, 2, caring for our home, and my nights and weekends with my husband when he’s not out making the world safe for computer users. Any extra time is spent cooking for my friends and family, crafting and then selling anything and everything, and gardening.
