Marcia Formica

I am an evolving experiment in self-actualization. After a 31+ year corporate career, I ditched my suits and pumps and finally tumbled into my “why” in the fall of 2018.

I'm working on my first book, a humorous and sometimes harrowing account of surviving, and even thriving through, an 8 (ok - maybe more like 10)-year home renovation project being jointly delivered by my husband and me, with an occasional few contractors and (sometimes more than) a little help from our friends. I continue to share the ongoing saga on my Hump-Day House Stuff posts.

My passion for the links between food and public and environmental health can be found in my "Food Friday" posts. For fun (and profit), I am a practitioner of value investing and disciplined trading strategies.

I've been on the adventure of marriage to my husband Tim since 1993. We have 2 (arguably) grown sons, James and Owen, and the best family (including my mom & dad, whose care I'm helping with, which I also blog about in Mom & Dad Monday) and friends I could ever have imagined for myself.
