About Me. It’s all about me. Let’s talk about me.

Although this page may be about me, my blog is about YOU.  I hope to inspire you to truly design the life you want to live.   That’s how we roll around here.

 

ABOUT ME 

ON CRYING:   I don’t know how to cry pretty. Erhmergerd.  No worries.  I mostly smile and usually it’s with spinach between my teeth.  Or liquorice.  Or a cupcake.

YOUR HOME:  I’m a designer, lifestyle blogger and WordPress sumo wrestler.   I like to curate gorgeousness to inspire you to have the same in your home.  I feel like it’s my job to rid the ugly in the world. LOL. I like to keep it real.  I like to keep it affordable.  I definitely like to keep it feeling good.   Your home should always make you feel good.

 

MY LIFE:  I’m always dreaming of good hair days, because they never happen.

PHOTO GORGEOUSNESS:   I’m a planner of a good party, and taker of a decent photo.  I use apps for 90% of my photo editing.  For reals.  Apps.   These apps are my secret sauce.  Shhhhh

 

LIQUID FERMENTED GRAPES:    I like coffee and beer gardens, in no particular order.  I’m a lightweight.  After two drinks, I start licking faces.   I’m the first person to go to sleep at parties.  Always.  I’m exciting like that.   I like good things and I dislike bad things, unless that bad thing is a glass of red wine or a cupcake.

DECORATING:    I should come with a warning label:   I will re-decorate your house if you leave me alone in it.   There.  You’ve been warned fair and square. xo

 

I’M CANADIAN ‘EH:  I’m a Canuck.  That’s Canadian, y’all.    

Yes, we have computers in Canada.  

No, I’ve never seen a bear.

Yes, we sometimes say ‘eh.    

No, we never admit it.  

Yes, we have the best maple syrup on earth.  

No, it is not made by Aunt Jemima.  It’s from a maple tree, duffass.  

Yes, I like to laugh.  

No, I am not bored living in the middle of nowhere countryside.

Yes, I have thought about punching a squirrel

HOME:   We are a family of 6, living in the Canadian countryside.   Our home is 2 hours North West of Toronto, Ontario.  I adore my family.  Big time.  Especially when they make me dinner.  

 

MEALS:   I’m a crappy cook.  I have a thing for food.  But not when I cook it.  I do, in fact, have a thing for eating meals together though.  We have dinner together as a family every.single.day.  We have candles at every meal.  The candles are great for peacefulness and even better for less wrinkle sightings.   

 

MARRIED LIFE:   I’m married to the most down to earth beautiful soul of a man with {{cancer.}} His name is Michael and he is the love of my life.  We’ve been married for 20 years.  I’m still head over heels in love with him.  We live an extremely peaceful life.  We spend every day together and yet never raise our voices at each other.  Like ever.  In the history of ever.  It is a rare true love.  My heart still flips out when he walks into the room.  I adore him with every part of my being.   I can’t imagine my life without him.  I wrote about cancer and my love for him here.

This next wee video is the story of my blogging journey mixed with a bit of cancer….

PS.  

Making a video is equivalent to standing naked in front of your mother-in-law.  Just sayin’.   It is tricky stuff.  Deer.In.The.Headlights.

 

 

MEN:  Men are still men.  MEN.  Michael’s still a guy… let’s be real hahaha, and I like to poke fun at his funnies… 40 things your Mom didn’t tell you about men.  

 

COUNTRY LIVING:  I live with Michael, our four kids Shelby, Tristan, Mackenzie and Brett and a ginormous dog named Oliver (update : Sadly, Oliver passed away.  You can read about him here )  Btw’s, that post may make you cry.  Sorry ’bout that.  I hope you don’t ugly cry like I do.   We also reside with the occasional mouse.  Hey, I live in the country, the mice just invite themselves in.  

 

These are my four munchkins…

    Happy Birthday Lynne!
    Despite your remarks you don’t look anywhere near what your birth certificate may indicate. Hope you had a cupcake fuelled day.
    Cheers
    Marc

    Happy Birthday Lynne! and welcome to the best years yet. Old enough to know better, young enough not to care! Enjoy your 50’s, at this age we have wisdom, knowledge, and still enough youth to enjoy it all.
    I absolutely love your blog and your Instagram feed.! Been stalking you for a couple years now. You are an inspiration, and funny as heck! And Michael, well can you clone him? I’ll take two please!
    Enjoy that Birthday cake and a glass of wine!
