Welcome to Modern Musings!

Brand Inspiration, Logo, Palette & Design by Rose Gold Studio

Hello darling, and welcome! If you've been here before, (or since the beginning - ahem 2010!) thank you for continuing on this path with me. If you're new, I am so thrilled that you've come to this little corner of my world.

Saying goodbye to 'Smitten...in Cleveland' is happy/sad for me because it's what started this whole thing. While it will always be a huge part of who I am, the landscape has changed in the last decade and so have I. There are so many great outlets letting people know what's going on locally and I, personally, have a slightly different focus at 43 than I did at 33.

I'll still be attending and covering great local events and giving you an insider look at the best of what we have to offer but I have so much more that I can't wait to share!

Modern Musings is a blog for women that celebrates the aging process and teaches you how to create daily rituals that elevate your lifestyle - physically and mentally.

My motto is Celebrate the Everyday. The little luxuries. Those small moments of every day that you can look forward to. Life can get hectic, mundane or stressful at times and carving out these daily snippets can be sanity-saving and help to keep things balanced in an otherwise unbalanced world.

There will be plenty of beauty and skincare  - I don't believe in keeping secrets! And lots of great home decor and fashion finds.

There will be a weekly post - called Midweek Musings - that I'll use to share what I'm currently smitten (haha) with that week or things that have piqued my interest. I'm also going to get a bit more personal here than I have in the past. Mental health and physical health go hand-in-hand and all of it contributes to how we feel and how we manage our daily lives. No one is living that luxe life we all dream of if we're all just trying to get by, right?

As we are (still, I know) renovating our 160-year-old home, you're invited along as I try to complete this. Oh, and let's not forget that I now need to redecorate those rooms that I originally designed 15 years ago! (and on a budget, PLEASE!)

I'm all about elevating your lifestyle and luxe-living but also about making sure those retirement accounts get those deposits made. Again, it's all about balance.

Cheers, my loves! I can't wait to begin this new chapter with you. Let's have some fun.
