*About Young Wifey*

Growing up in the suburbs of Philadelphia, my friends often teased about my Cleaveresque family. From the outside, there was a perfect nuclear family, my dad was the bread-winner and my mother enjoyed making food from scratch. From the inside I saw not only the traditional roles everyone suspected as well as the role reversal, my dad was doing the dishes and mopping and my mother was cutting a hole in the wall to create a new doorway. My dad didn’t say “swell” or “the bees knees” and my mother didn’t vacuรผm with pearls and an up-do. But I do… sometimes.

Now that Hubster lured me to a small central Pennsylvania town, I enjoy carrying on the same family values and traditions whichย were instilled upon me early in life.

Young Wifey’s Blog is about gardening & landscaping, cooking & baking, home decor, home-improvement, DIY, sewing, creating (crafting), marriage, friendship, kids and taking care of my family. Everything that deals with being a Young Wifey. My blog started as a way to share my projects and life with my family & friends near and far and has turned into a resource for other wives, moms, friends, bakers, cooks, crafters, gardeners, DIYers, jewelry makers, etc…

Please comment on my posts if you have any questions (I’ll answer them), need a further explanation, thoughts, particularly like something, or would like to see something in particular. Don’t by shy!

    Hello! Thank you for your lovely comment! Nice to find new friends with lovely blogs! When I read about your family I thought it’s the same here…my husband cooks and I prefer to dig in the garden and together we put the tiles on the roof etc.
    Best wishes to you! Teje
