Living On Cloud Nine.

My name is Andrea Nine

I turned 50 in April 2021

This blog is a dream of mine, founded in 2015 and meant to encourage, inspire and inform. I'm a forty (k, now 50) something, happily married, Jesus Loving Hoosier who believes you're never too old for fun, style and smiles, right? It might be a yummy recipe, a cute outfit, parenting tidbits, empty nest feelings, decorating our home, fitness fun, favorites or just a random, uplifting post. Like most of us, I'm still a work in progress but I hope to bring a little sunshine to your day.  

Being on Cloud Nine is being blissfully happy. 
Truthfully, I've never felt talented or extraordinary at anything, but each day I come away with something that makes me happy!
While we all have good times and bad, I believe there are ways to find that bliss in each and every day!

A Few Things About Me
I'm a Girly Girl surrounded by Boys! My husband and 3 sons, all in their 20’s, graduated college and are in the working world. They are my World and they ROCK! 
   The 2 oldest Are engaged! We’re getting DAUGHTERS!!
We are empty nesters now.

 In our favorite beach town and Home away from Home.           

I have degree in Education, but landed a management job in healthcare for 18 years; resigning in 2018. 
YES to no more work stress!
I have extreme claustrophobia.
I LOVE to cook and bake and dream of composing a cookbook called "Dine with Nine."
I love to travel where no one knows us and immerse ourselves in the city and culture.
I have always loved FASHION, inheriting my sense of style from my mama. 
I remind my boys all the time I was
Best Dressed, Class of 89!! Their reply: "We know Mom, we know!!!!"

I LOVE Sooooooo many things...............
Sunsets, Summer "date days" with my husband, Starbucks, laying in the sun, Pool floating, family traditions, country music, Chick-fil-A, M22, Guilt Free Quac from Trader Joe's, Barry Manilow (don't judge), hoop and statement earrings, Leopard, especially shoes, berries, scrapbooking, shopping til I drop, Notre Dame Football, FALL, being cozy, wind turbines, Chicago (the city), singing to the radio, laughing with our boys til my side hurts, fonts, snowshoeing, working out including long walks with my sweet mom, Dana Carvey, black beans, Fannie Mae butter creams, Prosecco, Lake Michigan, decorating our newly built home, and binge watching popular T.V. shows with my husband.
Thanks for hopping on Cloud Nine with me.
Hope it makes you SMILE!!
