About Lemon Stripes

Welcome to Lemon Stripes where my adventures in style, healthy cooking, home decor projects, and life as a married young woman in Connecticut come to play.

In August 2010 I launched my blog to keep my friends and family updated on my latest concoctions in the kitchen and how they can dress for success. Today, the site has been reimagined and revamped into a creative space for my self expression. It’s a place where you can find plenty of color, style, healthy recipes, smiles.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy the ride!
