Hi there! I’m Karen Tucci behind Tips for the 40ish blog.  My blog began back in 2006 as a way for me to keep our friends and family in the loop while my husband, Jeff, and I began our life as newlyweds.  In the Fall of 2006, we began our search for a new home and our journey in trying to start a family. I couldn't imagine a better way for me to document this fun and exciting time in our lives than by starting a blog.

I have lived in Cleveland, Ohio my entire life and grew up cheering for the Cleveland Browns, Indians, Cavs and Ohio State. I love reading, cooking, organizing, decorating, exercising, and shopping.  Life has changed a lot since those carefree days of newlywed life and I wouldn't change any of it! My blog is about everything I love from Beauty, Style, and Lifestyle tips and our own family life.

Don't be fooled though into thinking I am some sort of domestic goddess, most days are crazy and I am lucky if we change out of our pajamas before noon. Our house is a mess more often than not and I think it’s so funny how life can change so dramatically in just a few years. I don’t have all the answers and I’m trying to remember to laugh more when things get out of control. God has blessed me in more ways than I can count and I will always be thankful for his blessings.

I love to answer your questions and am happy to do so any time!!! Please feel free to contact me at karenathomeblog@yahoo.com.
