How did you get started blogging?
This Custom Life grew out of a desire to help people assemble their own “patchwork” of life experiences. Whether it’s dealing with blended family issues, putting together a weekend trip, or working to advance a career, I hope there will be something here for everyone.
I was a creative writing major in college, but put that aside after law school as I worked to advance my career. I have spent the last 20 years in politics, first on Capitol Hill and then as a lobbyist. I recently had the opportunity to take a few months sabbatical, so I decided what better time to scratch that creative itch and help people at the same time!
I grew up in the south and I love to connect people. I introduce new friends to my other friends because I want the people in my life to all know each other. And whether a friend or coworker is looking for a repairman or a realtor or a hair salon, I’m always quick with the names of businesses and services I’ve had great experiences with. Books, recipes, great deals, travel tips – whatever the topic is, I love to share experiences and recommendations to the people I know.
Please feel free to write to me. I love getting emails from readers!
