About Me

Hello everyone, I’m Jeannie and welcome to my blog. 

I am a wife, happily married to my best friend since 1984.  I’m also a mother of two wonderful, grown children, a grateful daughter of Korean parents, and most important, a work-in-progress Christian. 

For the past 25 years, my life revolved around my family, especially my kids.  I was a mom, first & foremost.  Although not perfect, I loved every minute of being a mommy to my great kids…but they grew up. Darn you Father Time!

I started this blog on August 25th of 2011, in search of a fun hobby while begrudgingly accepting my future as an empty nester.  What a great way to focus my attention away from the sadness and changes occurring within and around me?!

As it seems, my love for fashion has emerged as the main theme for this meager blog. Could it be due to the fact that I have no real talent to speak of?  More than likely, yes.  This is my feeble attempt, while kicking & screaming, NOT to fade into a mere existence, as I’m constantly reminded of my “over the hill” status. You know you’ve arrived when  AARP & Long Term Care Insurance brochures frequent your mail box.

Seriously tho, our wardrobe doesn’t and shouldn’t define who or what we are, but I think of it as a small but an integral part of one’s self expression…good or bad…like it or not.  You’ve heard the old adage, “you never get a second chance to make a first impression”…so true.  I’m striving to grow old gracefully and with style! I’m shooting for the “most chic granny award” (not that I’m ready to be a granny yet). I’m not a fashionista ~ FAR from it. I just enjoy & appreciate lovely things…small & large, cheap & luxe…I’m a woman after all…can’t help it…it’s in my DNA.

As for my fashion spreads(haha), if you haven’t noticed, I’m awkward & uncomfortable…but I’m really trying! I thank my poor hubby for being a good sport and being my supportive photog. You have no idea how hilarious we look behind the photo sessions blunders. It’s a hoot & I’m having a ball!

I hope you’ll forgive my shortcomings, have a few laughs, and along the way should you find a few helpful ideas?….all the better!

I thank you so much for taking the time to read and visiting my humble little corner of the internet.

Philippians 4:6-7 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
