Hello my friends! My name is Mrs. Z! Homemaking, cooking, make-up, and vintage fashion have always been a passion of mine, but one I didn't have time to completely embrace.. After retiring from a fast-paced 31-year career in public relations, I traded my business suits for a housedress and began living life in the past.  I finally hold the most rewarding title of my life - housewife! Yes, I said it, Housewife! Retro Traveling with Mrs. Z is my blog and more site, which shares my journey as I live and experience a lifestyle that embraces the 1940s & 1950s eras. I am looking forward to sharing cooking, cleaning, baking, and homemaking tips and tidbits with all of you to help make your life a little more fun in these challenging times.!  I enjoy living a simple vintage life  in our beautiful home in southwestern Pennsylvania. I share my life with my husband of 25 years, Mr. Z, and two kitties. I hope you will take some time out of your life and come on this retro journey with me!
