About us…

wendy mays

Hey Ya’all!

If you’re curious what we are up to…

I have been a lot of things in this lifetime…but mostly, I am now a wife, mom (of both the human, furry and feathered kind) and fellow human trying to live a life that is joy-filled, peaceful and full of love and laughter.  I am (mostly) retired, although do keep myself busy running our vacation rental business, taking care of our animal menagerie, perpetual DIY and crafty projects. Blogging and doing videos has taken a significant back-seat as I take care of my own mental health and the needs of our family and businesses.

I have learned that life has many seasons. I have valued and treasured all of the season’s I have had the privilege of experiencing so far, but I also recognize the importance and value of knowing when it’s time for a season to end. As Curtis and I both have entered our 50’s – the most important role we have is to raising our family.

Our family currently resides in Alpine, CA a country suburb of San Diego.  We run a vacation rental and small hobby farm, The Mariposa Farmhouse, from here and would love for you to come visit us sometime.  Our vacation rental is a two-bedroom, two-bathroom farmhouse that borders the Cleveland National Forest. It is both peaceful and close enough to everything San Diego has to offer. And the most fun thing is we have goats and chicken who will love you crazy while you are with us. The are pure joy!

Also on our property, we have a small art studio where we hold art classes and art and sip events. Check out our business, Cutchie and Cocktails, to learn more.  Our classes are the perfect place for a girl’s night out, bachelorette, date night, team building, family event or private party.  You can message me via the Cutchie and Cocktails website or my contact form page here. 

Where else can you find me?
