The Beginning

This is the beginning of a new chapter in my life.  I am a former small-town girl who moved to NYC to chase an advertising career.  I did really well at fulfilling that dream.  I got a job at the New York Post for a few years, then a job at an advertising agency.  But the most important thing that happened is that I found a new home.  I fit in so much better in New York City than I ever fit in my small town.  All of a sudden, I didn't feel judged or trapped, I felt happy and free.  Along the way, I also met my future husband.  Since he was New Jersey born and raised, we ended up making our way back to New Jersey and as of September 2013, I am a stay-at-home mom to a very rambunctious two-year-old son.  This blog is going to document this time in my life, and also serve as ongoing motivation to create and sustain a frugal lifestyle.  I want to do more with less, and enjoy a simple lifestyle.  This blog will cover the aspects of my life that help fulfill that aspiration: frugal living, gardening and life as a SAHM.
