Hello! Thanks for visiting my blog! My name is Joanne and I am a stay-at-home mom to two daughters 14 and 16. I am married to a whip-smart, funny, and mischievous husband, Scott, who keeps me on my toes and never lets life get boring. Before our kids were born, I was a family physician and Scott is an endodontist. That’s root canals. Yup.

Lately I’ve been feeling like I am about to embark upon something new and recently it’s come into focus. I designed a line of cozy loungewear for women who want to be comfortable at home in something soft, cute, flattering and supportive. Here is where I will share my know-nothing journey into apparel production as I go about making my ideas materialize into something I can wear.

I am passionate about my downtime. This wasn’t always the case. Scott and I have been married 19 years, and at first I had no idea how to relax. Saturday would come and I’d say, “What do you want to do today?” From the couch, he’d say “this!” My skin would crawl. I just didn’t know how to have a recovery or leisure day. Well, I’ve learned well! You’ll never catch me hanging around at home in my jeans and underwire bra. Huh-uuuuh! As soon as I get home at the end of the day, I head straight to my closet to get into my cozy clothes. I live in them when I’m home.  But they aren’t perfect. I’m setting out to change that! Every year or so I search the internet to spruce up my at home uniform and can’t find exactly what I’m looking for. I figure if I can’t find them, I’ll make them and maybe other ladies will like them too.

Because I have a life that goes in a million directions, my journey will be slow. To keep you awake, I’ll also post random things about decorating, woodworking, parenting, running a household, and anything else that strikes my fancy.

And because I LOVE to laugh, I have also started a podcast where my guests and I tell our funniest embarrassing stories so we all feel less alone in our imperfections. It’s SO MUCH FUN!!! If you need a laugh, head over to fancyfreepodcast.com!
