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).
Our family homeschooled for 14 years. We used an eclectic/textbook approach along with participation in a private school diploma program and we loved it. My son now attends Virginia Tech studying Computer Engineering, and my daughter attends the University of Delaware majoring in Fine Arts.
I have a passion for preparing 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
My husband and I are now empty-nesters, and 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 26 years. In 2012, we welcomed a rescue named Fluffy the cat, and his exploits are included throughout this blog. Our family also 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…

Dear Becky, Your blog is one of my favorites, and I’ve nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award. Congratulations! http://bringingeuropehome.com/2012/04/09/playing-favoritesbeing-versatile/
Thank you so much, Robin! I really appreciate you thinking of me! 🙂
Hi Becky, I have nominated you for a Sunshine Award. Your blog certainly brings sunshine into my life. Not much to it. Just go to my post, copy the image, say five things about yourself and nominate others. As you have done this for the versatile blogger award I would say you are pretty much off the hook regarding those requirements. Sincerely, Sue
Thanks so much, Susan! I really appreciate it!

Love your blog title!
Becky, this site looks amazing! I’m not much of a garden-lover, but my wife has been changing me over the years. And, since my wife just got a full time job, I’m doing more of the cooking. I’ll be visiting your site for the easier recipes to see if this cooking healthy thing can catch on with me. Thanks.
