My name is Heather Astaneh, and this is my blog! I like to focus on a lifestyle full of fun, culinary exploration and learning how to just live vibrantly. I decided to document my findings here in the hopes that those who also want to live their best lives will be inspired by what they find here.
I was born in Chicago but grew up in beautiful Florida, eventually, I struck out with my husband to seek our fortune in the big city of Boston. I have always wanted to be an artist and a writer and I find that I’m able to do both by running Autumn Becomes Me. This blog has really pushed me to try new recipes, DIY’s and explore all the cool things Massachusetts has to offer.
Ever since I was little I’ve noticed the art of hospitality and wondered if there was a way I could bring that home. It’s probably why my bedroom was usually pretty clean. Now as an adult I notice it even more. I eat at a restaurant and I note why the food I’m eating made me feel special. I take note of the cutlery, and the plating. If I go to a hotel or a resort I take note of what they’re doing, from flower displays to what kind of bedding or towels that are used to make me feel luxurious. Then I think “How can I recreate this at home?”. After years of learning, this blog is where I hope to share my findings with others. If you’re looking to take homemaking up a notch then this is your blog. I cover luxurious dishes that will have your guests wondering if you’ve taken culinary classes. I will also show you the basics of home upkeep, and even holiday decor. This blog also covers fun things to do in the New England area because part of running an inspired home is experiencing inspiring things. My hope is that you realize that while it takes time if homemaking is your passion you can do some really amazing things.
So what do I do when I’m not blogging, or working on things to put on my blog? I enjoy time with my highschool sweetheart and husband Amin. I play with my two cats Tybalt and Moto. I am an acrylic painter who loves surrealism. I’ve been to London, Puerto Rico, Japan, Australia, and Malaysia. I love Boston when it’s not snowing. I’m an avid reader and watcher of Netflix and Hulu. I play Classical Guitar and I’m a seasonal World of Warcraft player. I don’t discriminate when it comes to fun!
