Thanks for stopping by. Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Denise and I am a daughter, sister, wife, and mom. I’m a former Catholic school teacher turned stay-at-home mom. The name “Happy Little Wife” is fitting because without becoming a wife, I would have never become mom and that right there – that has made me so incredibly happy.

I am a bit of a mess. Although, most people think I have it all together because of all that I do. I menu plan and cook, coupon, bake, garden, clean, run my own handmade business, and somehow always end up doing direct sales as a hobby. In addition, my husband and I have chosen to homeschool our children. But back to the part about me being a mess. I am. Things get crazy around here and clutter happens. I go on a little mini rampage and get things back in order.

I’m a perfectionist and I tend to overthink things waaaay too much. I’m extremely sensitive. I can get a little snippy and say things I don’t mean. And then I’ll most likely cry about it later. I care too much and I love unconditionally.

So why this blog? I’ve always loved to write and I have made it one of my goals this year to spend a little time doing something for me. I’ve created about three blogs over the past ten years, all of which had one post and then I never wrote again. I’m making a promise to myself to keep up with this. I’m looking forward to sharing what I do and how I do it. Whether it be a recipe, organization tip, a homeschool activity, or some other random rambling because I just need to get it out. This is where you’ll find it.

I hope you’ll join me on my journey.

xoxo ? Denise
