Welcome to your fresh start.

Hey you! Welcome to The Peony Lifestyle, a blog that’s for women who want a sweet simple life and home full of joy & beauty!

This is where I’m sharing my life as a wife, mom, dog mama, and writer who loves creating beautiful spaces for my family and women like you who want to live a life that comes straight from your heart!

I quit my 23-year long career eight years ago, and I haven’t looked back since.

Between then and now it has been an adventure for sure.

I delved deep into an intensive Creative Journal Expressive Art and Visioning Coach Certification program for over four years and this is methodology is weaved into my day to day approach in life.

I started a business where I coached women and facilitated creative personal growth workshops all over the country.

I became an Amazon #1 Best Selling International Author by being a part of this book, Bold Is Beautiful.

I enjoyed discovering Reiki and I’m now a certified level II reiki practitioner.

I’m an ordained minister and have even had the honor to officiate a few marriages.

As time goes, I’ll share more about where I’ve been, what I’ve learned, and how I got here.

I did let my business go about a year ago, and now I’m home most days with my two daughters, ages 21 and 16, who are way beyond “needing” a full-time mom, yet I can’t pull myself away from this sweet simple life I’ve created and return to the “real working world”.

So, my handsome hubs (who I lovingly call Babycakes) and I have decided that home is where I’m the happiest, so let’s not ruin a good thing (for now).

I’m not really retired, some say I’m on a sabbatical, I say I’m right where I desire to be.

I’ve dubbed this way of living The Peony Lifestyle. You see, the peony flower represents, for me, what I want my life to look and feel like. Beautiful. Full. Sweet. Simple. Blooming.

This blog is where I’ll be hanging when everyone is out of the house. Writing is my creative outlet and taking pictures is my new-found hobby. I’ll be sharing my thoughts on creating a sweet simple life that represents my vision of what my heart desires most.

If you’ve been following my various blogs and endeavors over years – thank you for that, I’m thrilled you’re still hangin’ with me.

If you’re just popping in – cool – I look forward to having you join me on this refreshing new journey I embarking on.

And hey, no matter when you’ve joined me, welcome to your fresh start! It’s never too late to start something new and I’m so happy you’re here. I hope to inspire and be inspired by you!
