SimPLy SQUeeeZe!

For years people have been saying to me, “you should write a blog!” It’s finally time to sit down and make that dream into a reality.

I’m a wife, mom of three, teacher, outdoor enthusiast, gardener, car-singer, dance fanatic, somewhat “hippy-chic-health-nut”, wanna-be mermaid. Oh, and…              I love Jesus and America too!

(insert: Free Fallin’ by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers)

I have walked through many highs and lows throughout my 4 decades of life. I hope that my journey can help to encourage, inspire and bring hope to those facing difficult times. Maybe even a smile and some laughter too! Here is the sweet, sour, and everything in between. Now, go grab a glass of lemonade.

Sit back and enjoy!
