Let me start by stating loud and clear that I am by no means a writer. I spell things wrong on a regular basis. I punctuate rarely, and incorrectly most of the time that I try. I am just a regular Mom with more important things to worry about than how to use a coma or a semi-colon properly. You can email and try to correct me, but I will just congratulate you on your abilities and embrace my flaws :)
So about me, this is tough, I don't like to talk about myself, I have never needed, nor wanted to be the center of attention, but I will start at the start and work my way up from there. I am an only child, lucky and then again not so much. I was raised in Southwest Minnesota in an itty bitty town named Holland. I spent my winters freezing my rear off and my summers with my Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents, and lots of Cousins. Where I was taught many things by many people, the most important of those things being common sense. A skill or trait that is so rare these days. I have fond memories of being in Gramma's kitchen. I only wish I had really been paying closer attention. When I was 13 my folks dragged me to Oregon, new job for Dad...New school for an angry teenage girl, but eventually Oregon became home to me. The friendships I made are still cherished today, and that's what home is really, isn't it? I have since made my home here in Idaho with my fantastic husband, and my two youngest children, a hamster, 4 cats, 2 dogs, and Bob the goat. I am sure to post tons more about all of the characters in my life.
I think I will leave with that, and hope to see you soon.
