A born and bred New Yorker living in London. Mother of two, doing and making for my growing family and attempting to live a more simple life in a world that is anything but. I am currently retired from the world of finance, trying to navigate a different but no less interesting path. One that I feel we are no longer taught to how to do: cook for families; making room for baby; gardening; canning this year’s tomatoes, etc. Less buying, more making. These posts will show you a little of what I get up to and if you are interested to learn more or "how to" I can help you with that too.
