Sometimes, life is sweet. Sometimes, it’s just a bunch of BS. That’s where peaches & poppycock comes from. And this is where I tell the stories about those two extremes in my life . . . and a lot of things in between.
Hey, y’all. I’m Kristin. I live in Atlanta, where I have a full-time job in advertising and a part-time obsession with figuring out what I really want to do when I grow up. I’m always adding to my extensive collection of unfinished writings, to-do lists and crossword puzzles. I’m a book club failure and can’t follow a recipe to save my life. I hate running, but I try to do it anyway because, well, fat. I spent 47 years as a brunette (see below) and am currently enjoying being a blonde (there’s probably a post in there somewhere!). If there were more hours in the day, I would sleep more, write more and explore more. Truth: my life is epically chaotic, but I’d be bored to death if it wasn’t. (And there’s always a bottle of Chardonnay in the fridge if things get to be just too much!)
And this is my crew: A husband who may or may not be an international secret agent, a maniac tomboy daughter whom I couldn’t possibly adore more, a snuggly Whippador who daily debunks the myth that dogs don’t like hugs and an insane 60-pound Ridgeback pup who thinks he’s a lapdog. I really dig spending time with all of them, so you’ll probably read about them a lot around here.
Long story short . . . The last thing in the world I want do is write more about #agencylife when I’m not at work. So here’s where I leave all that at the door and write about anything else I damn well please — things that interest me, fun/stupid things I find, DIY experiments/disasters, the nonsense that goes on in this crazy house on a daily basis . . . you know, the things that make even a modern madman a normal human. There will be f-bombs, so saddle up. But the plan is to have a little fun, share some stories, post a few pictures, find a little inspiration and just maybe give a little, too.
I’m glad you came. Seriously. It’s no fun in here alone. So get comfy and let’s get to know each other.
It’s gonna be awesome.
