Hi, my name is Kristy and I am the writer and photographer for this site.  All photos are taken with a Sony Nex 3N.  I am a 28 year old living in the Metro Detroit area.

This site is based around my new experience as a homemaker and about to be new mom with mental illness.  I have a college degree in civil engineering from Michigan State University, but I quickly realized during my first engineering job that I hated the work.  After a brief stint in sales and marketing, I just burned out.  I have been lucky enough to have the support of my fiance, Z, who has supported my decision to stay at home and discover who I am as a person and who I might be one day as a professional.

Please follow along on my blog as my story develops. I’ll be posting recipes, homemaking ideas, pregnancy info, fun events and about other topics I enjoy. I’d love to hear your ideas. You can interact with me here or find me on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter. I’d especially like to hear from any other engineers by training that are now doing something else, or any of the other awesome offbeat homemakers in the Detroit area.
