Love being a wife to my dear husband of 10 years. We live in central Illinois in a little old house with a little old kitchen and a little old oven. I love to read cookbooks, but I don't use them much now that I have the Zaar. My "job" job is teaching piano lessons, but my true passion is homemaking. I enjoy doing things the old-fashioned way, like washing my laundry by hand and hanging it on the clothesline to dry and making pizzas from scratch (sometimes with homemade cheese). We like to live a slow and simple life.
