Basically it’s a way for other bloggers to get to know each other – like a meet and greet.
We all write a post introducing ourselves and link them altogether – so we can make new friends virtually.
So…from my little corner of the world…welcome!
I’ve been married for almost 20 years to an amazing man and we have 5 great kids.
I adore chocolate – so much so that I started a separate Chocolate Blog.
I despise the taste of coffee – but could smell it all day!
I used to be a classroom teacher – but now my classroom is at home and filled with my own five kids (ages 17 down to 9).
We live in the middle of the nowhere among the hills in southern Iowa. Our nearest neighbors are Amish.
This is the view from my window – but not today. Today it is an ugly brown with patches of dirty snow with frozen mud and dreary dark skies.
You don’t want to see it – trust me – enjoy this view from June when everything is green and lush and beautiful.
My husband and I moved from the city to our homestead 11 years ago. We lived in a dreary old farmhouse (the hovel) that was already here while we worked to renovate a big beautiful farmhouse (the mansion) that we moved on to the property. It took us 9 years.
We moved in a year ago. 🙂
In my spare time I want to learn how to restore the patches of native prairie we have on the property.
Oh – and I want to learn how to take great pictures – well, at least better pictures.
I love fiction books, old quilts, and Hallmark movies.
I don’t like rye bread, politics, and science fiction.
I’m a big gardener – which means I have a big garden and grow really big weeds! 🙂
I love cooking and baking.
I shop thrift stores.
I lost almost 40 pounds in the last year.
I’ve been blogging now for almost 3 years.
I blog because I love words. I love to play with words and move them around. But mostly I blog because I feel a need to create something that doesn’t immediate get eaten! 🙂
I blog about my life, my faith, and my family. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Sometimes I’m just silly.
Thanks for stopping by!
