About Me

Map of Virginia

A little about me – I live in a house that has needed a desperate amount of attention due to prior neglect. Actually I have areas that still need so much work that I am too embarrassed to reveal in person to even my best friends, but as we tackle these projects I will share the before pictures with them and you!  Many thought we were crazy to buy a house in the condition this one was in but my husband and two teenagers shared the vision. We are having a wonderful time working on it together.


Another thing, I love to read!

I read a fairly eclectic range of books, but will only post about books that I would recommend to a friend.

You will find recipes on this blog, but the majority of the cooking section will be written by Melanie as she is far more capable in that area, however, I will occasionally post a recipe that I thought was easy and good.

Thank you for reading!
