I’m Carin. I hope you enjoy reading this blog of mine. I am a working mother of 2 kids: 5 and 10.
Family life is messy and chaotic. On the contrary, my personality is such that I like to have things organized and pretty. The main reason for this need to be organized and surrounded by pretty things is that I was a retail visual stylist by profession for the past 20 years. I have many loves besides my family; fashion, home interiors, cooking, photography, online shopping and outdoor shopping (malls piss me off– probably because I worked in them for a 1/4 of a century). I also love the beach; correction, ANY and ALL beaches, boats, pugs, entertaining, and trying to make the most fun out of all situations. Some situations are more of a work in progress…
I’m like a Mary Tyler-Moore/ Rhoda mix if you will…. Dating myself? who cares. There was nothing better in the 80’s than those awesome 70’s sitcom re-runs…..
Recently, I left the retail world for an absolute life change. I now work from home full time, partnering with my husband and our family carpet cleaning business. I no longer commute or work overnights and weekends, but life is just as crazy; But better…For us. It’s all an experiment. No one knows the perfect way to make the modern family work. It’s all a work in progress.
This is just a small time out for me to focus on some stuff that creates less stress and more fun.
Embracing the Gorgeous Chaos.
