I am in that phase of life when there are no more dress rehearsals. Like many of my friends who are in their 60’s, I am not in retirement at all. I’ve started this new venture with a focus on capturing joyous moments.
My life is largely spent on the Connecticut shore, where my husband John and I love to walk our golden on the beautiful, rocky, shoreline..
We have been restoring a historic home, vintage 1878, since 2008. We moved in in 2012 after moving from Yale, where we were resident fellows. It is a labor of love and sometimes madness!
We are also are avid sailors. Sailing is a pursuit that my husband introduced me to when we met several years ago. We sail our boat from Stonington, CT, and sleep on it most summer weekends. I often joke that sailing is like fancy camping. It is a poetic, rigorous, peaceful, and life-altering endeavor.
Gardening is my other passion, and I view a flower bed as blank palette to “paint” with plants. I love to have my hands in the ground and make something beautiful from nothing but dirt.
I love my family; cooking and dining together is a joy. My daughter, Alex helped me conceive of this idea during the planning of her wedding and continues to use her marketing expertise to contribute. My daughter in law, Lauren, is a publicist, and is also a wonderful advisor.
