Welcome to Under THIS Roof!

Under THIS Roof is where it all happens.  It’s our safe place to fall, the one spot we can just be, whatever it is that we are wanting to be.

Some days we are nothing more than a hot mess just looking to escape the world, some days this place is filled with laughter, tears, anger, chaos, or even the opposite, silence.  But, it is the one place that we call home.  It’s the space that we, as moms and wives, created for our families, no matter if we are dysfunctional and organized or running through each day like a well-oiled machine.

I’m a wife of 23 years, mother of 3 kids; 15, 18 and 22, pet owner of 2 dogs, a cat, and a fish (if it’s still alive), living an imperfect life in a colonial home in suburbia trying to make everything around me perfect! My family, my home, my friends, my job, my life!

I invite you to come in and sit, daydream on the front porch with me, work through the emotions of motherhood on the other side, where the children are grown entering their independent worlds into adulthood. Live the daily struggles of finances and learning how to undo all the habits that I have carried over the years and trying to learn to create a life for that very soon approaching, Empty Nest.
