About Me

Who am I?

I'm Courtney. I live with my best friend and husband, Bill and our sweet pea, baby daughter, Elyse. We have one crazy, bossy cat named Wilson who thinks he's a dog and loves to tangle with our young lab/border collie/bullmastiff mix pup named Libby. I'm a working Mama who enjoys her day job, but soaks up every moment I can get with my family.

I lost my Mom to ALS/Lou Gehrig's Disease June of 2007 - she was only 51. Her diagnosis and eventual passing have forever changed me. I'm passionate about finding ways to support our local ALS chapter and helping those going through a difficult time due to a terminal illness or facing the loss of a loved one.

I've enjoyed learning to sew on my mother's sewing machine. I like long power-walks with my girlfriends. I adore watching my daughter grow, breathing in her sweet smell and melting when she smiles at me. I love photography and just about every night my nose is in a book or manual learning more about my camera and photography concepts. I love our home. I love to cook and entertain. I love to organize and de-clutter. I enjoy decorating, particularly when on a small budget or DIY.
One last thing. I've really enjoyed figuring out this blogging thing. It is fun.
