Hi! I’m Jolie O’Dell, the Single Housewife.
I love cooking and homemaking, but until recently*, I was still a single girl living in San Francisco. So I figured, why wait to be a homemaker for someone else? I might as well enjoy the fruit of my own labors in the present, too.
I’m blogging here about recipes, tips and tricks for cleaning (who doesn’t hate cleaning house?), decorating and sewing advice, and all the stuff I’ve learned about being a housewife, either from my housewife family members or along the way as I figure things out for myself.
In my real-world day-to-day, I am a journalist — pretty much the opposite of a housewifely type. I make my living in a high-tech world of billionaire mover-shakers, but in the evenings and on the weekends, I’m baking, crocheting, and sitting around in an apron and a smile.
*I got myself hitched in the late fall of 2012. The Husbo, as I call my fella, sometimes does the dishes. We have a dog and two full-time jobs, so we stay pretty busy.
