I’m Kathy, the domestic engineer, who keeps the boat afloat. Actually, it’s the Captain who keeps it all from sinking. I am a wife, empty nester mom, and blog & Pinterest enthusiast. I am enjoying retirement, and now have time to take all of those blogland ideas and use my experience to put my spin on updating my little 1980s Lakeside Cottage. Our lakeside house (“cottage” is so much more romantic, isn’t it?) is located in central California, where the weather is fairly mild,
if you can ignore 2 blazing hot months during summer, so I work on projects, both indoor and out, all year round. My past work life included graphic arts, typography, and photography which shows in almost every project; or, at least the attention-to-detail, as long as it is simple. I have a passion for home decor, photography and traveling to new places. MML shares my journey of updating myself & my surroundings and exploring new places, all in a Simple & Affordable way.
My motto is that something does not have to be expensive or complicated to be amazing. So, grab your cuppa joe and Meet Me Lakeside, “where only SIMPLE floats.”
