characters, setting and plot . . . the rest is still being written.

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 . . . as well as a bunch of utter randomness.

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. 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 cold box of wine 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 who i couldn’t possibly adore more and (not pictured) a snuggly pooch who daily debunks the myth that dogs don’t like hugs. get to know this whole cast of characters. i really dig spending time with them, so you’ll probably read about them a lot around here.long story short  . . . the last thing in the world i wanna do is write more about #agencylife (ha) when i’m not at work. so here’s where i leave pretension 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.

♥ Kristin

  6. Hi Kristin! Thank you for following my blog. I’m now a follower of you, as well. We seem to have a few things in common; adorable families, not knowing exactly what we want to be when we grow up, artsy-fartsiness, and a passion for unfinished projects. I look forward to exploring your blog. Enjoy your weekend! 🙂

    Hi Kristin! Thanks for dropping by my site! I have never read an About page as fun, crazy, engaging, adorable and as interesting as yours! I feel a little ashamed for my own About page. Hahaha seems it’s time to rewrite and play with it a little more 🙂 I look forward your reading more of your blogs! 🙂
