About Me

Welcome to my blog!


The last twelve years have been like a roller coaster. At the age of 41 I became a widow. Something I never thought I would experience at that age. Within a few years I would also see what an empty nest looked like. That empty nest opened the door for me to move to Tennessee.

I didn’t know but one person when I arrived and didn’t even have a job, but I was determined that this was what I was supposed to be doing and although it was scary at times, I made the most of it and came out on the other side.

Somewhere along the line I bought a house, got married, sold my house, started traveling in a RV, bought another house only to change my mind in less than a year to move back into the RV  full-time. The traveling gave me an opportunity to see things that I would never have been able to see and I am grateful to my husband who made that possible.

Once my husband and I started traveling, we acquired two short-haired chocolate colored dachshunds. One is a male, the other is a female, Oscar & Harley, respectively.

In December 2020 we decided to purchase a home again and take our life in another chapter. When I’m not working in my full-time job, I enjoy traveling, remodeling, bowling, reading, fishing, sewing, using my Cricut, crocheting, loom knitting, cross stitching, cooking and a good DIY project.

Here on the blog, I hope to share about our lives, as well as some of my favorite recipes, photography and sewing and crafting. I learned to cook when I was a child and some of my recipes date back to my childhood. My photography has grown over the years and my love of pictures dates back to when my children were born. My sewing and crafting abilities have grown in many directions and I enjoy sharing my makes with others.
