Hi. I’m Francie.


I’m Francie and I like to write.

I like to read funny, witty things and I like to attempt to write my own funny, witty stuff for others to read. I also like fashion, tennis, good food, sauv blancs, pinots and red velvet cupcakes. I have a crazy-busy supportive husband with lots of high-tech, creative talent and a bent for cycling. I’m the mother of two teen boys, with yin and yang personalities so my life is never dull and neither is theirs. In my previous life I worked in sales and marketing, then fell into the volunteer pool at motherhood.

This blog is my first self-imposed “volunteer” project where I can reach out to others and satisfy my creative outlet simultaneously, hopefully with the same effect—to think twice or just laugh.
