Hello, and welcome! This is my space to talk about creating a warm home and happy family life, as well as share my favorite healthy recipes and best family travel locations. I’m Penelope Guzman, a work-at-home mom living on Long Island, NY who is a pharmacist by profession, but much more passionate about writing and photography. As the cool James Faust once said, “A woman can have it all…sequentially.” I plan to have it all- one thing at a time.
* writing and photography
* family travel
* cooking healthy homemade food (I love keto and IF)
* learning at home
Family fun is important thing to me, so I always look for ways to have lots of outdoor fun every day, prioritize family travel, and I incorporate of mix of homeschooling with standard schooling for our sons at home (I find unschooling fascinating but it’s not permitted in New York). Our goals over the next few years are to take lots of road trips around the United States, and to try out lots of new activities and sports!
My older son currently loves chess, gaming on the Nintendo Switch, ice skating, and piano (NYSSMA Level 3), and he is also a bit of an entrepreneurial kid. My younger son loves ice skating too, as well as tennis, chess, and reading funny books for children. Both love to read a lot! Hubby is a gamer, (loves nostalgic gaming on the Play Station) and started a YouTube channel to share play-throughs of his favorite old games.
