Hello! My name is Caitlin, but my friends and family call me Cait! I live in Ohio with my loving husband and our amazing fur babies Binx (cat), Mowgle (cat), Reagan (German Shepherd) and Zara (German Shepherd). In late 2015 I was in a rut. I had just moved to a new city, started a new job and was just trying to figure out life. One of my best friends Roxanne brought up the idea of a starting a blog! I had always toyed with the idea of starting a blog, but the timing never seemed right. So thank you Roxanne for giving me the push I needed to start Vintage and Vine! Why Vintage and Vine? I am fascinated by all things vintage and all things vine (wine)! I have always been enchanted with the 1920s era! Not surprisingly my favorite book is The Great Gatsby and my favorite show is Downton Abbey! This infatuation has inspired me in all aspects of my life from style, beauty, hair and home decor! I am so excited to share my creative drive and ideas with all of you! I hope that you become inspired and implement some of my ideas to brighten your daily life!
In addition to my love of all things vintage, I am also extremely passionate about health and fitness! I plan to share work out ideas and tips, as well as nutrition ideas and recipes with you! I believe that health and fitness does not solely pertain to the body, but the mind as well! So in addition to workouts and recipes, I will be providing tips and ideas for relaxation and mediation! I have been a practicing yogi for 5 years now, and I implement aspects of yoga in my everyday life even when I am not on my mat! If you are looking at the menu, you will see that I have a section titled “the book nook.” Part of having a healthy mind and brain means putting it to work and learning new things! In this section, I will give recommendations and reviews of books I have recently read. I will keep you updated on the current book I am reading in hopes that you will pick up a copy! My goal is to make this into a book club of sorts!
Lastly, you are probably wondering about the “vine” portion in vintage and vine! That one is super easy to explain! This girl LOVES wine! As Benjamin Franklin said, “Wine is sure proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.”
Thank you for joining me on this exciting adventure and enjoy!!!
