I'm a 40-year-old full-time homemaker and a food allergy parent. I love to cook. I'm teaching my 12-year old daughter some culinary skills. She plans to open up peanut/tree nut allergy-friendly bakery someday. I'm an avid reader and I'm always researching. I have a never-ending quest for knowledge. I'm a mythology buff. I believe that each person must follow his or her own path in this life. I believe every path has value and lessons we can all benefit from learning.

As of November, we are also a homeschool family. I'm enjoying the adventure!

My health philosophy: This journey is 3 fold -- Mental, physical, and spiritual. To truly change your life -- to be an all-around healthier you -- you must address all three. You have to find your personal balance. Then almost everything can be enjoyed in moderation.

But you have to find your balance first.

Favorite Quotes:
"What progress, you ask, have I made? I have begun to be a friend to myself." Hecato, Greek philosopher

"Humor is emotional chaos remembered in tranquility." --James Thurber

Personal Information:
I grew up in northeast MS and migrated to west Tn about 16 years ago. I'm married and have 1 daughter. I'm an "allergy parent." My kiddo has a peanut allergy. My husband is diabetic, so I spend a lot of time managing special diets. About 23 years ago I was diagnosed with PTSD and generalized anxiety disorder. These days, with Yoga and meditation, I manage without medication. That's a huge win for me. I'm an avid reader. I'm excited that my kiddo and I can finally share books! Yep I read a lot of YA and "tween" book series.

Other Information:
Philosophy of Life: If you can't help someone just do your best not to hurt them. That's your job as part of the human race.

    When I gave you your team challenge goodie from the GGs, I hit Send instead of Paste. emoticon So here's the message that was *supposed* to come with your pinwheel: "In acknowledgement of your taking part in our Air challenge this week. Whether you completed the project or it is still a work in progress, hopefully you are enjoying increased space, freedom and flow, and will continue to do so. Thanks for participating!"

    That's AWESOME, Eva, I hadn't thought of a detective comic book. COOL!

    Thanks for stopping by & leaving a comment on my blog, Eva. When I was writing, I was thinking more along the lines of a novel as opposed to a comic book; however, my second blog came out sounding more like a travel-log.
    I am glad you enjoyed it!
    Thanks ever so much for the compliment on my photography play.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, Eva. I hadn't thought to check until you said something, but I didn't find anything. Anyway, it's quite possible that nothing happened seeing that I WASN'T there.
