about

Welcome to mere-et-filles!

I started the blog in 2007 with my daughters (the “filles”), who were then students (the older a sophomore in college and the younger a freshman in high school). It was a fun way to connect with them and share updates with our family. Eleven years later, those daughters have grown up (the older is now married with two delightful little boys and the younger is living and working in New York City) and long since stopped being contributors.

But mere-et-filles is still my on-line home.

I migrated the blog (from Blogger) to WordPress in June 2018. I’m excited about the opportunities this new platform provides for making this on-line home a better place … not only for me to share, but also to promote a sense of community with you, my readers.

My husband Marc and I are retired. He plays a lot of golf, which gives me time to do a lot of other things. I enjoy knitting, reading, volunteering and getting together with friends for a walk, a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. I also enjoy sharing bits and pieces of all those things here with y’all and the friendships we build.

Thank you, readers!
