About Harvard Homemaker

I'm a mom to four daughters, a homemaker, and a Harvard graduate. As an eternal optimist, I blog about anything that makes life easier and happier. I think that enthusiasm for life can be found in my writing. With that said, I'm also a realist - life is a messy business. Let's try to find the beauty among that mess together! I hope you'll stick around and join the fun! xo, Christy
