Hi. I’m Mariel (Pronounced mahr-eeee-elle). I started this blog back in 2009, with the intent of giving women, like myself, great ideas for all of the things they care about. As my family grew, the posts I tended to write were not just ideas for women, but more specifically, FAMILY IDEAS. I’m a real believer in families and am a huge fan of my own, so that’s what ‘Or so she says…’ is all about… family.
