Hello, and welcome to my oasis! This is the place I talk about creating a warm home and happy family, easy beauty tips and homemaking ideas for busy moms, and my love for photography and travel. My goal is to create a home that is truly an oasis for my family, a place they feel safe, happy, and loved. Pull up a chair, have some coffee, and relax while you read … I love being the hostess.
I’m Penelope Guzman, the work-at-home mom of two sweet and funny boys, as well as the wife of a brave man who is truly my hero. I’m a pharmacist by profession who is much more passionate about writing and photography, and as the cool James Faust once said, “A woman can have it all…sequentially.” I plan to have it all, even if it’s one thing at a time. I want to fully enjoy my young family here on Long Island, New York, before our boys grow up and venture out on their own, so took a sabbatical from my career to focus on my boys and blog.

Our family life is the most important thing to me, so I always look for ways to have lots of outdoor fun every day, prioritize family travel and activities, and I love teaching our sons school subjects at home (even considered homeschooling them because I love to teach so much). Our goals over the next few years are to take lots of road trips around our beautiful country, and to try out lots of new activities and sports- they really want to try out fencing next!
My older son currently loves chess, Boy Scouts, gaming on the Nintendo Switch, ice skating, and piano, 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 his own YouTube channel to share his play-throughs of his favorite old games.
Our 2020 Bucket List:
♥︎ Family vacation to Cape Cod and Cape May
