About Me

I'm a Jersey Girl, through and through, living in the Garden State. That comes at a premium price, but it's worth it! We have every season, a whole coast of beaches, forests, rivers, and lakes. We can easily get to New York, Philadelphia, Boston and Washington. We have museums, aquariums, zoos, nature centers, and theaters and we don't pump gas. I can't think of much of anything I can't get to in under an hour or an ingredient for cooking I couldn't buy. That all adds up to good living to me!

I've been married to Dennis my whole life ;) We've weathered all sorts of things life has thrown at us and enjoyed lot of blessings. I am truly a 'glass half full' kind of girl.

We have 4 boys that we share our house, meals and bathrooms with and some days are better than others. We are a motley crew that restaraunt staff rarely forget - I tell the boys it's because they don't often see boys as well behaved as they are :)

I love homeschooling and boy scouts. I believe in God and believe I am loved by him. I like people who challenge how I think. I like cleaning, and hate food shopping. I am book lover and a recent 'tea' convert trying my hand at crocheting. I enjoy baking, and like watching cooking shows. If I wasn't me, I'd want to be Dolly Parton. This is a blog about the good, the bad and the mundane.
