I grew up thinking I was going to be a career woman. I was adamant there was nothing more tedious than cleaning and anything that involved nature (especially spiders and bees!) But the older I became, more obsessed I was ensuring my kitchen was tidy and hearty meals were placed on the table. Years after graduating from University of British Columbia and working as an instructor, I had an epiphany and a sudden change of mind. It had dawned on me that if I could, I would rather cook, clean and garden all day long. At that moment I realized I was an aspiring full-time housewife.
…but the soaring house prices in Vancouver had made “single-income family with full-time housewife” a thing of the past. So I am a twenty-something year old Vancouverite, simply aspiring to be a housewife one day meanwhile hustling as an instructor and a writer on the side. I am also an infamous hostess of the tea-less tea parties (because who needs tea anyway when we got wine?) and an avid world-traveler.
