Ellie's blog is called Have Some Decorum. She has written two books. Ellie is the author of Surviving Thanksgiving which not only delves into the culinary secrets of the O'Connell Family, but also relays funny family stories. She recently wrote A Very Chic Christmas which she said could be subtitled How Not To Have A Tacky Christmas.
Now do you understand why I love this woman?
Ellie is married to a handsome French man and is the mother of a beautiful daughter. She has a myriad of friends - some rich and famous - some not so much.
Ellie writes with self depreciating humor. Her stories are fascinating and her take on life is exquisitely refreshing. The most charming ingredient in her writing is her gift of brutal honesty.
One more thing... Ellie has ALS and yet she refuses to let it define her. She is an inspiration to all.
Stop by Have Some Decorum when you have more than a minute. Once you read one post, you'll want to read them all.
Tell Ellie her new (imaginary) BFF sent you.
Have a wonderful day!
