I am enjoying “retirement.” I am busy, but my days are filled with things that give me so much joy. I start my day when I want to, creating new projects in my home office, taking Hazel for walks, swimming in the pool, and making dinner. I have to pinch myself when I realize I am home. I missed my family and my friends. I do have alot to share about my time in Maine as an “Accidental Innkeeper,” but that will come for later.

Hospitality Coaching

I have blogged for over ten years, but writing and working full-time was a challenge. Happily, I can now give Home with a Twist my full attention. I have many exciting and fun ideas to grow this community, where I share everything my mother taught me.  In addition to writing digital courses, which you will learn more about this Thursday, I will coach women’s groups to share the art of hosting gatherings with confidence rather than chasing perfection. To start the conversation, click here to inquire about booking me for a memorable and inspiring program experience that will resonate with your group.

Creative Inspiration

I am so excited to have the opportunity to meet Wendy Conklin in a few weeks. You may know her as Chair Whimsy here on Instagram. She is a boutique chair designer and teaches upholstery classes. Check out her Instagram page – it is stunning. She is hosting a small dinner in her home, and I snagged a ticket!  I can’t wait to meet her and have her sign my copy of her book Life Whimsya book I read and savor daily. The messaging and photos are like no other book I have read. It is truly a jewel and the perfect coffee table book.

Give me all the Pumpkin Spice

I found a new recipe Pumpkin Layered Magic Cake, from Betty Crocker that I plan to test drive – I am sure Mr. Twist and Phoebe will not mind being in charge of quality assurance. The magic is after pouring the cake batter on the bottom, followed by the pumpkin layer, the two batters switch during baking!  I’ll share the results on my Instagram community soon!

Thank you so much for following me and supporting my adventure!  I appreciate each and every one of you. Have a lovely week ahead. And be sure to watch for the launch of my digital course on October 12!
