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 thirteen years now. We use an eclectic/textbook approach along with participation in a private school diploma program and we love it. My son has graduated and now attends Virginia Tech studying Computer Science and Music, and my daughter is a rising senior in high school.
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 two small raised bed gardens, 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, I’m in the kitchen quite a bit. I like making things from scratch, menu planning, and fermentation/probiotics.
My Home is My Haven
As I mentioned, I homeschool, but not only that, my husband works from home, too. Since we’re home a majority of the time, it’s important for me to make our home a cozy, welcoming place to be. 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 25 years. In 2012, we welcomed a rescue named Fluffy the cat, and his exploits are included throughout this blog. When not knee deep in homeschool obligations, our family enjoys exploring national parks. So far, we’ve visited Grand Teton, Yellowstone, Acadia, Zion, Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Rocky Mountain, and Yosemite. We eagerly await our next adventure.
Thanks for visiting! I hope you enjoy your stay! When you’re done having a look see, join me elsewhere on the web…
