Happiness is wanting what you already have...or so they say. I'm a book editor and navy wife in San Diego who loves cooking, crafting, gardening, home improvement, healthy living, and hitting up estate sales for vintage treasures, but I'm on a budget, have a hectic schedule, and, frankly, sometimes get a little lazy. Emotional Magpie is where I write about my life, both the good and the bad, and my attempts to find contentment in it. Thanks for stopping by.
