I’m a Christian
Mom and Dad laid the foundation when I was a kid, then I made a renewed commitment to Jesus as a Junior in highschool through Young Life. As I plan my course in life, I rejoice that the Lord determines my steps (Proverbs 16:9).
We have been homeschooling for five years now. We currently use an eclectic/textbook approach and we’re loving it. My son is in fifth grade, and my daughter is in third grade.
I have a passion for feeding my family organic, healthy, whole foods. Gardening has been a fun extension of that desire. While it’s just a small raised bed garden, it still delights me to stroll out into my backyard and come back in with the makings for a salad or dinner in my hands.
I’m in the Kitchen A LOT
Whether I’m baking in it, cooking in it, or just cleaning it (remember those floor crumbs I mentioned?) I’m in the kitchen quite a bit. I like making things from scratch, menu planning, and I’m toying with the idea of getting into canning and preservation. Stay tuned on that one!
My Home is My Haven
As I mentioned, I homeschool, but not only that, my husband works from home, too. Since we’re all home a majority of the time, it’s important for me to make our home a cozy, welcoming place to be. This tends to bring out the crafter in me – I love decorating and scrapbooking. I’m also trying to reduce the chemicals and waste in our home by taking baby steps to greener living.
I have two darling kiddos, a daughter born in 2003 and a son born in 2001. I’ve been married to my supportive, loving husband for 17 years. We had a fish named Trixie, but she swam on to greater waters. Not long after, we welcomed Ricky the Cricket. He was not long for this world, either. We recently adopted Fluffy the cat, and his exploits are included throughout this blog occasionally.
