Hey, I'm Cathy. 

I'm a 27-year old NYC gal that just moved to the suburbs. I live with my fiance, our 3 cats Monty, Annie and Roger, and a turtle named Doki.

I met my fiance at the front door of my parents' house when he came to check out an apartment at their 3-family house. Last October, in the beautiful city of Chicago, he asked me to marry him after 4 years together.  We bought our new house right after, and are living happily ever after.

Both of my parents are artistic in their own way, so I've loved arts and crafts for as long as I can remember. My mom is super handy with a glue gun and loves to decorate for the holidays. My dad like to draw, write, and can create almost anything out of the most obscure materials. My sister is a graphic designer who's tech savvy and takes great photos. We are all very close, especially my sister and me!  

I'm currently working as an office manager in FiDi, NYC. My job lets me do some of my favorite things, like event planning and organizing. I spend my downtime writing, reading other blogs, and creating one of a kind dolls. Pinterest is one of my favorite hobbies, and allows me to learn so much about home decor, DIY projects, parties and organization. 

Here on my blog, I hope to inspire people to live a fuller life.  I hope I can encourage them to keep their house a little neater, their parties a little bigger, and their days a bit more productive.
