Work With Me | The OC Housewife Who Ran for the Hills

Thanks for your interest in working with me here on After Orange County.


After Orange County is a publication dedicated to living life in the slow lane but doing it in style. I escaped The OC for life at a higher elevation. Leaving suburbia behind, I now live in the beautiful mountain resort of Lake Arrowhead.  My followers join me at 5,000 feet above and beyond as I cook, garden, renovate, entertain, travel and live life After Orange County. In a trusted and authentic editorial voice I provide my readers with the ultimate inspiration for living the good life.

In the “Cook” category I feature unique and delicious recipes in a step-by-step tutorial fashion that empowers my followers to prepare delicious recipes with confidence.

In the “Travel” section readers follow me around the globe as I candidly blog about airline experiences, ocean and river cruises, hotels, restaurants, cities and sightseeing attractions.

In the “Entertain” section I bring readers into my home, showing them how to be a gracious hostess, giving them not only great inspiration but links to all the products and resources I feature.

In the “Renovate” portion of the blog I show readers how to turn old, rundown, fixer-upper cabins in the woods into the most charming vacation rental properties on the market. Here too, links are provided to all of the products and resources I use in my renovations.

The “Home & Garden” section of the blog is dedicated to all of my miscellaneous endeavors, from my popular “How To” posts, to features on home decor, holidays, DIY projects and much, much more.

In the “Lake” category I take readers with me as we entertain on the dock, cruise the calm waters and possibly catch a glimpse of one of the many Hollywood celebrities that call Lake Arrowhead home.
