Hardly Housewives

We first met ten years ago at college but bonded a few years later over our love of wine, our dissatisfaction with life in Boston, our shared commute, and our longtime boyfriends. Now, six plus years down the road, we're living 1,000 miles apart with totally different lifestyles.

Caitlin lives on six acres in rural New England in a house full of pets, art supplies, and vegetarian cookbooks. Jaisa lives in downtown Chicago where she spends her weeknights cooking carnivorous dishes in her condo kitchen and her weekends in search of the best restaurants and bars Chicago has to offer.

Both ladies, now married, never lost their taste for good wine and good times.  Join Hardly Housewives on their adventure to keep it hip, homey, and hungry.
