Hey, you!  


Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

So you want to know more about me, huh?   Curious if we could be friends but you need a bit more information first?  Well lucky for you, I’m an open book!

I’m Chrystal, and it’s lovely to meet you!  I’m 36 years old, and have been married to my sweetheart, Mike, for a total of 18 years.  We have 5 of the funniest, most creative children I’ve ever met, and I’m not just saying that because I’m their mom.  Ok, I might be, but this is my blog, so that’s allowed.

Our home is filled with fun and laughter, colour, music, art,  and just a touch of teenage drama.  Our youngest is 5, and she spends every waking moment that she’s home trying to turn our house into an episode of Hoarders.  When you see pictures on my blog that look like our home is neat and tidy, just know that I had to clean up for 3 hours before I took the picture.

I trained as an interior decorator, but right now I work as a maid.  Which surprisingly, I really enjoy, probably because I love taking care of people and most of my clients are either elderly or disabled and they really rely on me.

I am a formerly shy person who blossomed into a boisterous, outgoing “people person” as I aged.  I love meeting new people.  I can’t stay angry with someone for more than 10 minutes, even if they deserve for me to be angry with them.  I compliment strangers.  I love animals and children. I love to nurture others.  Interior design and baking are my passions and I do something involved with both of them every single day.

So that’s me in a nutshell!  I hope you’ll come back to my blog often and leave me comments and links to your blog so that I can get to know you, too! I just know we’re going to be great friends!  See you soon!
