About Us


HI!  My name is  Eileen and I am a blogger for The Cozy Home!  I am a recent widow, step mother to 2 boys and one of 7 children born to 2 Irish immigrants.

Born and raised on the northwest side of Chicago, where i still live,I enjoy experiencing everything that is Chicago. I love to go out to dinner and try new restaurants and to check out all the festivals and different shopping experiences.  I love decorating my home to make it cozy and inviting and i also love cooking and trying new recipes. Entertaining can be so much fun especially in the summer when i can show off my backyard and all the beautiful flowers i have planted - did i mention one of my favorite things to do is gardening! Another great passion of mine is travel. I love travelling across the United States and also all over the world.

I am excited to share my journey with all of you and hope my passion can translate into something you all can relate to and enjoy.



I am Noreen and I am a cozy home blogger.

I am also a wife (my husband is Randy and we have been together since I was 18 years old. Yikes!), mother of 2 boys (Quinn and Cody), and a sister to 6 siblings (two who are bloggers for cozy home, Eileen and Siobhan).  The 3 most important roles in life.

I am a Chicagoan born and raised on the Northwest Side.  My city is amazing!! And every chance I get to try discover new things here, I am game!

I love making my home the place where my family and I feel most comfortable. Entertaining at home is one of my great pleasures. Great food, great drinks, great company!

I have many fun obsessions, decorating and design books, skin care products and great food to name a few.  This is what has drawn me to blogging, it is my way of sharing all the things that bring joy to my life and the life of people closest to me.

I hope you join me on this journey!!
