Getting To Know Lorelai

Life is fascinating! Living life on the sidelines is not an option for me. I want to embrace it.

Hi, I’m Lorelai, and I’m thrilled you stopped by Life With Lorelai for a visit. Sharing recipes, DIY projects (home and crafts), fun and heartwarming stories, and more is not only cheap therapy; it’s also me helping you to embrace life, love, interests…

What is my blogging style? A friend once said that I was a, “creative storyteller serving up life with a side of humor.”

I love to throw parties for my family and friends, which always receive rave reviews – from the delectable and gratifying food to the fun, fabulous, and frugal decor. So, when they need a little help, whom do they call? Me. I am happy to oblige. Being a “hostess with the mostess,” doesn’t have to be hard, it just takes planning.

Over the years, I have learned lots of tips and tricks to help you in the kitchen, around your home, in the garden, and planning for holidays and other celebrations. You will even find some ideas for your pets, with the help of my two adorable kitties, Jinx and Josie. Hang around, and let’s embrace life together. I will help you take my ideas and make them your own by adding personal flare.
