About Me

Just a Girl from a Small South African Town making it Work in the USA!I am a regular mom, wife, organizer, shopper and general fixer of my family’s problems! I love to research DIY projects, watch HGTV, organize our “stuff”, read and more recently, trying my hand at gardening and blogging.I’m from a very small town in South Africa called Garies. Even though I moved away after graduating from High School, I still see myself as the “Girl from Garies”. Growing up in a small town had a huge impact on my life and shaped me into the person I am today.English is not my first language, as you might be able to tell from reading my blog. I actually grew up in an Afrikaans speaking household and community, where very few people spoke English. It was a mandatory part of our Education, but I’ve come to accept that mine will never be A+ material. At least you don’t have to deal with the accent here as well!I moved to Atlanta, GA in 2011 with my husband Pieter, and kids Simon and Sidney. The “Big Move” provided me with some new challenges and adventures. Through this blog, I would like to share my past struggles, current adventures, future plans, and everything in between!Please feel free to subscribe to my blog to get all my updates as I post them.
