I live in rural west TN with my husband of over 8 years and our many, many pets. I love to garden and cook, and lately have also been experimenting with soapmaking and photography (my pets make great subjects). I enjoy old-fashioned and simple things, like sitting cross-legged in the grass with my dogs and cats all around me, walking in the poultry pens with a bucket of corn, or digging in the vegetable garden. We live right across a dead end road from my parents... which for many might be considered an unpleasant hindrance. Luckily, we all love the situation! I love my home, family, and life... the only thing we lack is a child, which we have been trying for now for well over five years, with the loss of three babies early in pregnancy. Sigh.
