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 vacuüm 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 which 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…
