About Me


Hi and thanks for visiting! I’ve been married to my husband, Howie, since 1973 and we’ve been blessed with a large family. Our oldest child and only son was born two days before our tenth anniversary. After him came five daughters. The three youngest are still in college.

We live in Gainesville, Florida and I work for a large rural hospice as their dietitian. I’m also employed as a Tai Chi instructor and diabetes educator.

I’ve always loved growing things and am constantly expanding my garden. I enjoy sharing my adventures with cultivating vegetables, fruit, herbs and many varieties of roses, mostly old fashioned.

We’re very passionate about good food and are constantly trying out new recipes – I’ll include some of our favorites here. We’re currently very excited about learning to sew all kinds of bags, from zippy pouches to leather purses. I love sharing the things my youngest daughter and I make and we’ll include tutorials from time to time.

I hope you’ll subscribe to our blog and share your thoughts.
