Hello! I'm glad you stopped by. This is where I'm supposed to wow you with all my credentials and what makes me special. Sorry to disappoint you but I'm just an average lady who decided to start writing about stuff she's learned along the road of life. And what a road it has been!
I was born at Keesler AFB, Biloxi Mississippi three years before it was wiped off the map by a hurricane. My father was an enlisted man with a dislike for CO's and a belief that the grass is always green at another base. So, we moved...a lot! He retired from the AF when I was 14 but found civilian life even more unpleasant so fairly quickly began a career as a civil servant for any branch of the military that would take him. I found it hard to escape the wonderlust as an adult and continued the habit of frequent relocations.
My wonderlust also extended to careers and education. I think I would have made a great career student if I'd have been able to figure out how that is done. I managed to graduate from Trinity College in Washington DC in 1995 with a BA in Human Relations and from the University of Bridgeport in CT in 2009 with a MA in nutrition.
I am mother to four: Tanner, a rescued cocker spaniel; Trixie and Chloe, rescued chi/pom/doxies; and BJ, a rescued nineteen-going-on-fifteen kid who somehow managed to survive an atrocious childhood. I guess I'm a rescuer of all those needing care and love whether two or four legged.
My interests range from spinning wool on a drop spindle to homesteading a small patch of land to backpacking in the Smokies. I love to read and study and collect recipes--and by extension to cook for my motley crew of rescued souls.
