On Homemaking

Home is where my heart is. These four walls and, much more importantly, the souls inside are my raison d’être. Homemaking is hardly the drudgery that modern culture wants us to believe. The art of homemaking is needed. It’s important and offers those who partake a chance to develop a wide range of skills.

The homemaker knows there is never a dull moment, and like any job, there is a risk of burnout. So join me as I cultivate my home and keep the drudgery at bay by breathing new life into my surroundings and its residents whenever I can.

For words beyond what is said here, be sure to listen to my podcast, “Homemaker Chic.”
