Hi, I’m Marjorie. I live in Brookline, Vermont. I blog about life, nature, and family memories, with humor throughout.

My full-time gigs are building websites at Codewryter and managing HSP Nature Toys, a company started by my husband’s dad in 1992.  My husband, Richard Ray, is a full-time artist and sells his work on Artfinder.

We have three kids, who bring us a ton of joy, and one dog, Luna, who keeps us in line.



I have four brothers, who live in the Boston area, and one sister, who lives in Australia. None of them are normal.
