“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.”
“I don’t much care where –”
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.”

About Chanele

I am Chanele. Wife, mom and rescuer of animals. I love couponing and finding deal match-ups.  It gives me a gambler’s high to see how much I can save.   I am always organizing, rearranging or changing something. Most of my day is spent running a household,  finding domestic bliss, and chasing around my daughter, Libby.

About Good Life of a Housewife

I started Good Life of a Housewife after having my daughter. Having a child inspired me to be the best mom and wife I could be. After giving birth to our daughter, I knew I wanted to stay at home with her. Going from working fulltime to staying at home was a lifestyle adjustment, to say the least. Contributing to the family income and having an identity—responsibility, outside of the home, was a huge part of my life. Making the decision to stay at home meant reestablishing my identity. One book that really helped me transition through this was, Simple Abundance, by Sarah Ban Breathnach. It is a day book of “comfort and joy.”  A timeless classic that speaks to finding your authentic self.

On my journey as a new mom and housewife, I wanted to create and inspire a new outlook on life. More importantly, I want to create a loving and comfortable, family first home.  Running a household, cultivating meaningful relationships, raising healthy, altruistic, confident children, all of this, it’s an art. It takes teaching, learning, and practice.  To me, a “good housewife” is a matriarch. It’s not about washing dishes, but keeping a clean home. It’s not about having children, but raising them to be kind, confident, independent and family oriented. It’s not about creating the “perfect” home, but creating a home that is perfect for your family; a safe zone.

Good Life of a Housewife was created for wives, moms, women, who want to create that safe zone. It’s a place to find inspiration, encourage and create.
