Welcome to Ginger-bred!
My name is Candy Costas, my mother’s name was Ginger. Throughout my life to her passing in 2004 she shared her very strong opinions and beliefs on everything from fashion to cooking to home decorating to marriage and child rearing. The list goes on and on…..Like most mother-daughter relationships, we did not always see eye to eye, and as a grown woman there were many times when I wished she would keep her opinions to herself. Many times.
Well, well, well.
Here I am, now in my mid-fifties, in what I consider to be the best years of my life so far – often recognizing the influence of this firecracker of a mother. She was a traditional stay at home mom with a style and personality that did not go unnoticed. Her “lessons” did not go unnoticed either.
In my current day to day life I often feel that I am exploding with excitement about the many nuances of fashion and living a full life. My intention for this blog is to share this excitement through my own ideas, experiences, and good finds. (Some of these would be highly approved by Ginger, others not so much!)
I hope you will find it enjoyable, helpful, and life enriching.
