I’m Brandy, a 30-something Michigander, nerd, gamer, and lover of strong coffee. This blog was created as a space for me to share pieces of myself, from my lifestyle to cooking, home styling to travel, and everything in between.

My husband, Alan, and I bought our house in the summer of 2016 and have slowly been working to make it our own. We have two cats, Mister and Murphy, and two dogs, Lea and Maeve. I’m a huge nerd (Harry Potter, Star Wars, Firefly), food lover, and a maker of things. I’m also a practicing secular/eclectic witch, a textbook Scorpio, tattooed, and a weight lifter. When I’m not working in technology incident management, you can find me binge watching Food Network shows or Bob’s Burgers, scrolling Pinterest, and playing World of Warcraft.
