I’m Alison, a newlywed, a fibro-fighter, a lover of coffee and wine, Jesus, affordable style and simple DIYs.  I love reading anything I can relate to or find inspiration in, and I hope this can be that for you! I’m here to share both the struggles and the happiness of living a life with someone I love, the battle with a chronic illness, simple DIY’s, and affordable style!

I now have the last name Richards and this is where it all begins; A Richards Life. Which for me, translates into a richer life because taking this step has made my life all sorts of richer; richer in laughs, and richer in love and boy does it taste so sweet.
