"The real things haven't changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have, to be happy with simple pleasures, and have courage when things go wrong." Laura Ingalls Wilder
Welcome to my life and blog. I retired early four years ago from my personal chef business. Now my life revolves around my husband and our 1929 Charmer home. We love and share our cozy cottage living and gardening.Our cottage home is decorated on a thrift store budget and a whole lot of creative juices. Happiness can be achieved on a budget with no less charming style offered by an unlimited budget.
