The Making of a Magazine…

When I planted those first seeds many years ago, little did I know that they would outgrow my garden. For many years I dug, planted, and grew, bloom after bloom. Then I decided to try my hand at produce. That was a whole other beast! There were many triumphs and just as many fails, but…

HomePlace, a Home & Garden Inspired Magazine

I’ve always loved magazines. The photos, the short snippets of info., the stories, recipes, quotes, recommendations, the ability to travel without ever leaving the page! Ah, yes, I believe magazines are quite magical. And so… I started one of my own! I know, I can hardly believe it myself but Here it is, the very…

It’s 2021…Time to start planning!

We’ve been on this road called military life for the past 27 years. Twenty seven YEARS! 2022 will make 28, and yes, I’m including the two years prior to our wedding when Chicken graduated from The United States Naval Academy as we had already been dating for three years at that point! Do you know…

It’s About Time!

I finally did it. I finally figured out how to update my blog….sort of. It took a lot of patience… And cursing… And crying… And temper tantrum throwing… And wondering why in the heck I can’t understand techno talk! I mean, If I can raise four kids, move back and forth across the country for…

FRIDAY FRENZY – Hug Me

  So I started work on that mini flower garden that hopes to grow into a mini flower farm one day and now I’m hot, dirty, sweaty, bleeding, cursing, and just a fleck of a straw away from all out bawling…. . . Putting in a new garden will put a smile on your face…
