My husband and I live on a lake with our Bichon Maggie and Truly, a Maine Coon cat. I love to cook for my family and friends,and our faith is the most important part of our lives. I'm a crafter, painter,...love animals, children. A retired speech pathologist for the public school system, my husband and I love to travel, and we are avid campers and hikers. Old recipes (ones from the 19th and early 20th centuries) are facinating to me, and my husband and I are very interested in anything and everything British. My mom is my best friend and the world's greatest!
