Just Off Square - An Introduction

Welcome to Just Off Square! My name is Lindsey, and it’s nice to meet you. A couple of you may remember me from back in the day when I blogged as the Amateur Wife, an unfortunately named blog that resulted in some equally unfortunate Google alerts.

Just Off Square is named for a phrase my husband tells me is used in construction when something is almost there, but not quite.

We think that phrase sums up our daily life quite nicely – like when you make chili and your 20-pound Beagle manages to scurry onto the counter (don't ask) and eat it out of the pot, or how you don't realize it's really gross that you ate the remaining chili anyway until someone at work points it out.

By the way, this is the culprit:

Meet Hamilton Culpepper, food waste specialist

I can't talk about Ham without mentioning Sawyer, his partner in crime.

Sawyer enjoys wearing clothes, whining and pretending he's a human. He pretty much always looks this anxious.

I started this blog because I love to write and I love reading blogs! My husband and I are not-so-newlyweds (coming up on three years in August). We just bought our first home and are learning to balance healthy living, school (for me), work (for both of us) and our dogs. We love good food, decorating our condo, traveling as much as possible and all that good stuff that comes with 20-something life.

This is us:

At my sister-in-law's wedding last summer. Apparently, this is the last semi-decent photo I have of the two of us.

So, thank you for joining! I hope you'll stay awhile. (Well, when there are actual posts to read - coming soon.)


I just did a quick Google search of the phrase “just off square” and nothing came up, so maybe my husband made that definition up. But, at least a bunch of amateur wife porn links don't pop up, so I'm calling it a win.
