Pardon the mess around here. As a part of our recent name change from FHB and Me to The Well-Tended Life, this page is currently being converted into a simple hosting site for my Archived Blogs and All Things Frances. Check out our new site at .

But while you are here, here is the scoop: She’s my Great-Great Grandmother, Frances Hodgson Burnett,  famous writer of memorable books like The Secret Garden, Little Lord Fauntleroy and A Little Princess. And I’m a Motivational Speaker, Biographical Lecturer, Writer, Vlogger, and Gardener of Life who plants seeds of hope by blowing the book dust off her inspiring words and legendary life, and mixing them with my personal stories for a multi-generational twist on growing through your everyday.

Together, we strive to leave you inspired and motivated

to dig deeper into life and bloom true.
