We have two kitties, a little shelter rescue dog named Millie. We live in northern New England, and are a blended family/step, like many families of today. We have been married for over 5 years and this lifestyle has been a work in progress.
Before we chose this lifestyle, we both lived through infidelity and divorce. We agree that it was THE best thing to ever happen to us.
Mr. Landry was looking for a loyal, nuturing, loving wife and I was looking for a husband who prided himself in being a loyal, loving, provider. We both were looking for someone who believed in old fashioned values. WE were a PERFECT match.
It has been my hope to be a stay at home mom with stability in my life and for my children. Of course the fashion I wear and decorating with antiques/vintage is a plus. We are Christian, but honestly one does not have to be to adopt this lifestyle. We don't drink or smoke. No, I'm not oppressed or a kept woman. I simply choose to be happy and create a home of refuge, grace and productivity.
There are a lot of us "housewives/homemakers" out there today and we get a bad rap for being oppressed. I believe the "feminists" have it all wrong, and that's my opinion. We all have one, don't we?
I lay my husbands clothing out on the bed, every morning before work. I get his coffee before he gets out of bed, and see him off to work with a kiss and hug. Things like this are called ACTS of love. Men want to be nurtured and my husband agrees.
I heard someone say this once. "Sometimes you have to go outside, to get back in." I believe there is something amazing to the "1950's Housewife" lifestyle. It works.
