Who am I?

Hi, my name is Marilyn. People call me Merf. Why, you ask? Because growing up, my last name was Murphy, so people called me Murph. Then at some point in college a friend started writing it Merf and it stuck. So that’s me. Merf. You can call me Merf or Marilyn. Or you can call me something else if you prefer. I’m not too picky.

I am a 36-year-old living in the D.C. area. I’m married to a super cool guy and raising two super cool boys (J-Man who is 4 and K-Dub who is an infant). I am surrounded by men, and I’m okay with that. :-)

So, Merf, what’s this blog all about?

I have always been obsessed with into self-improvement. I’m constantly setting goals for myself, big (be someone my children will look up to) and small (try to go a whole week without eating an Oreo). Wait; maybe the Oreo one should be the big one. I digress – at the beginning of every day; I remind myself of the kind of person I want to be. At the end of every day I ask myself if there was anything I wish I’d done different. I’m always focused on being the best me that I can be.

If you’re here because of the food, you may want to read about all of the different food memories or my favorite food cures.

Whatever led you to the Divine Details Shop, I hope you enjoy it and I hope you stick around.
