Mike and CD


Welcome to CD’s Country Living.

I’m CD and that handsome guy next to me in the photo is my hubby, Michael.

We said our vows almost eight years ago on the sandy beaches of Mexico surrounded by our children and family.

One year later we became empty nesters.

Since then, we have spent most of our free time fixing up this two-story, 100 + year old home.

I won’t lie.  This isn’t our dream home. But it’s home for now, and we are doing our best to make it a lovely ‘forever’ home for someone who will cherish the character and history that made us fall in love with it in.

Unfortunately, this house needs a LOT of work, and most of the projects require a budget we simply do not have.

Which is why we are doing all the work ourselves,  one project at a time.

(I hope to have a complete home tour on the blog soon.)

When I’m not painting or ‘assisting’, Michael with one project or another you can find me in the kitchen!

Because I LOVE to cook and bake and recipe make! I share many recipes here on the blog, but you’ll find I lean more to the sweets side of things.

That’s because I have a husband with a definite chocolate addiction, but really any sweet treat will do!

We both love to garden, although we are not pro’s by any means. I love planting and harvesting and Michael loves to weed! Yes, you read that right! He LOVES to weed! He says it’s relaxing. Go figure!

So, if you’re into perfectly ‘imperfect’ and you enjoy a laugh or two, then come along on this crazy journey with us!

If you have any questions or would like to work with us, feel free to email me at cdscountryliving@gmail.com

Blessings and hugs,
























Andy (Mel’s hubby), Mel, Katt, and Shane
