Hi! I’m Linnell and welcome to my blog!
“What about this?” is a phrase I frequently catch myself saying, because I’m always coming up with ideas. Like the photo header above, which I took at a Chihuly glass exhibition, I wish this blog to be a bright and colorful record of my thoughts, ideas, and endeavors. Although I intend to post about some of my favorite topics – food and creative projects – I will also include posts on ways to help others, ways to reuse and recycle things, inspirational and humorous commentary, my photography, occasional gardening or fashion tips, and basically anything else that pops into my head! Pretty random stuff, but sorry that’s how my brain works.
What about me? Let me introduce myself. I’m a fifty-something-year-old woman, who is a wife, mother, community volunteer, former dental hygienist, former “style expert”, and aspiring entrepreneur.
I put my husband through graduate school more than three decades ago and today he is a successful professional. Hooray for him! Making the decision to be a full-time stay-at-home mom was easy, but raising three children was the hardest job I’ve ever had. I love my kids, but hooray, they are all out of the house now! I’m ready to embark on the next fifty years of my life. It’s my turn to discover all that I can be. Want to come along for the ride?
