About the new blog

Good morning~

Thanks for staying the course with me during this transition. Created in 2010, this web site was first introduced as Cindy La Ferle’s Home Office. I used it regularly until I started posting my photos with inspirational quotes on Google Blogger. Due to recent changes at Blogger, however, I’ve returned to this web site. We’ve migrated the material from Things that make me happy — and revamped this site’s design.

A few housekeeping notes: If you’re reading Life Lines on a cell phone, you’ll miss a few special features. For a full tour of this site and additional content, please take a look on your laptop or desktop monitor.

Lastly, you’ll notice social media sharing options in the lower right corner of each post, on the home page. Thanks for visiting, and I hope that each post will inspire you or enhance your day.


Throughout my career, I've worked as a book production editor, travel magazine editor, features writer, and weekly newspaper columnist. My award-winning lifestyles features and essays have appeared in many national magazines and anthologies, including Newsweek, Reader's Digest, The Christian Science Monitor, Writer's Digest, Victoria, Better Homes & Gardens, Bella Grace, and more. My weekly Sunday "Life Lines" column ran for 14 years in The Daily Tribune (Royal Oak, MI) and won a First Place (Local Columns) award from the Michigan Press Association. My essay collection, Writing Home, includes 93 previously published columns and essays focusing on parenthood and family life.
