Peacock Parables

I’m a middle-aged wife, mother, editor, and now blogger.  My family lives a simple and peaceful life in the beautiful Colorado Piedmont.  Despite my age, I’ve only been married a short time, and this is my first marriage. 

I have an 11-year-old daughter who is “mine” and a 15-year-old son who is “his,” but they are both very much ours.  Since getting married in 2009, my husband and I have settled into unexpectedly traditional roles (he’s the breadwinner and I’m the fire tender).  This has been very successful for us, both for our marriage and for the simple practicality.  

My blog is about the experiences I am having and lessons I am learning.
