Hi there.

According to science, I’ve got 9 seconds to fascinate you before you click away.   Here’s me in the remaining  6 “Mississippis”: Miniature gardens make my heart melt, sharing stories keeps me sane, and I’m fanatical about finances.

Whew.  If you’re still reading, I’ve passed the goldfish attention span test and I have your laser focus to thank.  My name is Chloe Sayers and I’m a bookkeeper by day, writer by evening, and baker on the weekends.
