Hello there! My name is Maura and I am new to the blogging world! Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my small corner of the blogosphere. I am so glad you’re here! I wanted to create a space where I could share my journey, ideas, tips and tricks I have as I shift into living a happier, healthier, homier life.
Why I started this blog
After years of dealing with depression I decided I need a creative outlet to share my ideas, trials, and anything else I was doing to lead a happier healthier lifestyle. I love writing and sharing what works for me, in the hopes that you enjoy reading the posts, will try some ideas yourself, and come back for a visit.
Things about me
I am a New Englander, born and raised. New Hampshire girl at heart (always in a Granite State of Mind), Connecticut/NH college educated, Massachusetts transplant, and Maine vacationer. I complain about the snow in the winter and the heat in the summer. But I cannot imagine living anywhere else.
I’ve been a high school ELA teacher for the past 7 years. I currently teach ELA 12 and Film as Literature. The job is both challenging and rewarding everyday.
I am a lover of books, classic movies, pinterest, quotes, organization and my crockpots.
I am a wanna be yogi, runner, DIYer, homemaker and wine/beer aficionado.
Thank you so much for stopping by, and I hope you come back soon. I’d love to hear from you if you have any ideas for me to try, comments, and/or suggestions.
