about me


 Hi I'm Carrie!
 I am divorced after nearly 25 years of marriage. So I am on a new journey of discovery about what I want out of this next chapter of my life. I still enjoy many homemaking activities like cooking, baking, decorating and doting on my kids and my sweet mini golden doodle Ruby. My son is in college but home currently because, well, covid. His big passion is music. My daughter is in early high school and loves many sports. We live in a cozy home on a beautiful bay in the northwoods, which I find breathtaking in every season. I love all things vintage and woodsy cottage. I love the outdoors & being active, nature, gardening, collecting antique pottery, golf, scrapbooking and other craftsy things. I love to travel as well. My initial career was in social work which I left long ago to be a stay at home Mom. Now that my kids are older I am looking into new passions. I love the Lord and consider myself a very spiritual person, and I enjoy putting my faith to practice by volunteering at a local hospice house. I am going to begin classes to become an end of life doula soon; it's something I have felt called to do and I'm excited about this new path of service.
Welcome and thank you for visiting this space where I love to share my home, recipes, crafts, flowers, nature and whatever may be on my mind any given day. I hope you enjoy getting to know my neck of the woods!
