About me

Occupation Gardener, Canner, Homesteader
Location Utah, United States
Introduction ~~~Welcome~~~ *I'm a girl who's married to her one true love ,best friend, and eternal companion. We have three grown children, and one daughter in law. I love baking and cooking. Trying new recipes, and whipping up family favorites. It smells like a cozy memory in our home. Pots filled with herbs sit on the sunny windowsills, candles flicker filling the house with smells of cinnamon and sugar. *Good books fill the library shelves. Old movies fill the armoire. How I love old movies. *Project lists sit on the desk. Whether it's working on the great old house, our youngest bought, or planning and planting garden, or decorating, canning or crafting... there's always a project list. *Laughter : "The only way to get through life is to laugh your way through it. You either have to laugh or cry. I prefer to laugh. Crying gives me a headache". ~Marjorie Pay Hinckley *Conviction : I'm determined each day to do a little better, and be a little bit better person. *Gratitude: I chose to be grateful, no matter what. " A thankful heart is the parent of all virtues." ~ Dieter F. Uchtdorf
