Welcome to Kretch’s Korner!
We, Kretch & Ms. K, started this blog in the hopes of challenging ourselves in our many interests and hobbies as well as, obviously, creating a platform to launch the modeling career of our very photogenic rescue dog, Bronn (just kidding! no, but seriously).
Creating a site to prepare for weddings is now widespread, but we wanted the scope of this project to go beyond that one day (or, in our case, two!) and cover more topics in the daily life of coupledom. Though we only recently married, we have worked at our relationship for many years and hope our experience of what works and what doesn’t is – at the very least — entertaining:)
We wanted a space to thread together our many interests and hobbies. We plan to cover everything from cooking to counseling, wine to sewing, jewelry-making to forge-building, communication to traveling, relationships to reading…! Current events, TV, the best diners and flea markets, random poetry, How-To crafting – this is what happens when a writer/list control-freak marries a dreamer with textbook ADHD. Welcome to our Korner of the world!
The name Kretch’s Korner stems from the common nickname of our very consonant-rich German surname; the wooden plaque (below) has been passed around in the family, generally meant to be hung at a good fishing spot on some Missouri lake. Right now, however, it is displayed above one of our many bookshelves in the corner of the living room (right above Bronn’s “room”) – here in the Appalachian mountains.
