I got married about six months ago to my wonderful husband JonMarke, so now I'm learning (trial-by-fire style) how different married-life-with-two-cats is from single-living-in-a-college-dorm. Hint, it's very different, but I'm really enjoying it!
I am finding that I enjoy a lot of domestic things much more than I used to. I like to cook and I've recently rediscovered my love of crafting. I love to organize everything: our home, our finances, our day-to-day lives. I love anything and everything DIY. I'm clearly no expert at any of this, but I'm organized, practical, slightly domestic, and super optimistic, so I've got a good feeling about it. :-)
I started this blog in February of 2012 to share some of my experiences with all of my eclectic interests, and also to help me de-stress from my full-time IT job. I love crafting etc. and then blogging about it; it's fun and it relieves stress, and hopefully inspire others in the process!
If you want to get a feel for the local color at Practically Functional, here are a few of my favorite posts to get you started.
My job is a bit stressful sometimes, so every once in a while I love to de-stress, relax, and just chill out with this simple detox bath. I guess everyone else likes to relax as well, because this has been my most popular post so far!
I also just started an indoor herb garden in our kitchen, and it's doing pretty well. I'm sharing tips and tricks in a series starting with my post about Starting An Indoor Herb Garden. If your thumb is a little more black than green, check it out!
I hope you enjoyed this intro, and thanks again to Kara for having me as a guest! I'm going to keep crafting, cooking, organizing (the list goes on and on) over at Practically Functional and I'd love for you to join me!
Thank you Jessi for being my guest today!! Your blog is fabulous!
