My name is Becky and I am a wife, mother, teacher, and an insatiable information seeker. I love my husband and children fiercely, though I think that raising a family takes more courage than skydiving and really does require a rather sizable village. I love our home and finding interesting and beautiful things to put in it. I love gardening and pretty flowers. I love my girlfriends, all strong and smart women, who have listened with infinite patience and given me the best advice. I love coffee and its rich and sordid history. I love food- I love to eat it, grow it, make it, serve it, research it, and talk about it all day long. Most serious discussions I have had in my life, whether happy or sad, have happened over a plate of delicious food. When someone in my family is broken-hearted, the first thing I think to do is cook for them.
I love the Internet. I can keep in touch with friends and family who live far away. I love that I can find recipes from folks who painstakingly post step-by-step directions and beautiful pictures to go along with them simply because they adore food. I love how savvy of a shopper I can be with product information and reviews just a few clicks away, whether it is for a chandelier or a maple tree. I love that if I have to write a sympathy note and I just type, “how to write a sympathy note,” there are 17,300,000 results 0.51 seconds. I love that I can research foot pain and go to my doctor’s appointment with 3 possible diagnoses, although I’m not sure he feels the same.
I am excited about this blog because it combines all that I love-relationships, family, wellness, home, the quest for a fulfilling career, and always a bit of pretty as the cherry on top. I look forward to meeting you and sharing all that we know and hold dear!
