Hello! Welcome to my oasis, the place I talk about a medley of topics, like marriage and parenting and homemaking, my favorite beauty tutorials, and my growing love of photography. My goal is to become the ultimate domestic goddess here on Long Island, New York, so pull up a chair, have some coffee, and relax while you read…I love being the hostess!
I’m Penelope Guzman, a freelance writer, hobbyist photographer, and the work-at-home NY mom of two incredible boys, as well as the wife of a brave man who is truly my hero. In my old life, I was a pharmacist and traveled the world with friends, but as the cool James Faust once said, “A woman can have it all…sequentially.” I plan to have it all, and I’m at the mommy and wife stage in my travels through life (and enjoying every minute of it).

I recently realized I’ve been blogging over six years. What started as a hobby after I was married evolved into something that presented me with the option of pausing my career to embrace life as a work-at-home mom. I discovered an online community of women who are friendly and supportive, helping me navigate the early years of motherhood with a sense of humor, appreciation, and even patience, and I am unceasingly amazed and grateful for it.
We recently bought our first home, and renovated a fixer upper into our dream house. One of my favorite new hobbies is finding ways to beautify our family home, and this is a big focus for me in 2014. Thank you for visiting. I hope you enjoy and find something useful here, and always feel free to contact me with any questions.
