Hi, I'm Mary Grace. I am a new mom to a sweet baby boy and a wife of one of the most wonderful men I've known. I work part-time as a Registered Nurse. The decision to go part-time was a very hard one for me, but it was also one of the driving forces behind the creation of this blog. Because we would be living on less income (insert intimidated face here), I was inspired to find ways to cut our spending and live more simply. I've always liked to think of myself as a creative, frugal, DIY-er. But now I feel really driven to try out new ideas, recreate old things, and figure out the 'homemade' and healthy lifestyle and all the happiness and simplicity it has to offer. But I'm a newbie to this way of life and have barely begun to get my feet wet. Although living simply and homemade is an intimidating concept to me, I'm up for the challenge. I'd love if you'd join me and we can learn it together!
