“Let yourself be silently drawn by the strong pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.”

Welcome to The Verdant Home, a lifestyle website and blog dedicated to my adult kids, and you, the reader! The Verdant Home is the direct result of squeezing this middle-aged woman with relentless professional pressures until ……I about blew a gasket. One day I finally realized that in my heart-of-hearts, all I’ve really wanted was a happy home.

For years, I was ashamed of wanting something so humble …until I discovered I was not alone and that other people wanted the same thing- a life of Simplicity and Joy. A life of organization and peace and healthy relationships and healthy meals. A life with meaning and comfort and color and laughter.

This blog is dedicated to the simple questions- How do I know when a chicken is done?- to the complex- How do I create a life with authenticity? I don’t have all the answers, but I am willing to ask the questions, tell the truth about my life, and hopefully, help others create a life verdant with what they really love. Your feedback, questions, observations and experiences are always welcome!

With warm regards~
