Introducing Elements of Chic New Website ...

I have been so excited to unveil my new's a little like giving birth.  What?  No, it's nothing like giving birth.  Yes, there was conception and maybe some growing pains as I decided what I wanted it to be, how I wanted it to look (you really don't get those options with a baby). Thank God there was no morning sickness or stretch marks, although I did have some sleepless nights thinking, planning, thinking some more.  So, it is in its infancy and I hope you like it as much as I do.

I couldn't have done it without the brilliant talents of Lucretia (Lu) Ranere of LR Designs  .  She is amazing at what she does...web design, social media guru, photographer and so much more.  I was able to tell her what was in my head and she brought it to life.  It is a work in progress, like any baby, and we will see how it grows and changes as time passes.


The main focus will still be my passion for Interior Design but my blog name has changed to Design, Wine and Other Musings because well, I like a lot of things and life is crazy and an adventure and this is my place to document this awesome, funny, frustrating ride that I am grateful every day to be on.  If you know me and you've seen my FB posts, you know that John and I have been tasting our way through wineries for almost thirty years.  Wow, did I just say that out loud?  That's a lot of fun in a barrel.  We've shared many a bottle with family and friends and for the past year now, I have been moonlighting at a local grocery store pouring wine and making friends.  This is not snobby's mostly social with an ever changing cast of characters.  It's a great way to learn more about wine without feeling like you're an idiot because you don't know a Chardonnay from a Viognier (how do you even pronounce that?) or a Cabernet from a Zinfandel. So if you are not into countertops, window treatments, DIY projects and paint colors but you're a wine drinker, then we have something to talk about.

We all have many facets to our lives from kids, to grandkids, fitness journeys and trips we've taken across town or across the world.  You may get a little of that here...oh and we just got an Australian Shepherd puppy named Sydney so you will definitely get to know her and our adventures!

So look around and I hope you will take away some great tips and observations, plus have a little fun along the way.  I would love to hear your design, wine and other musings as well!
