About me

Location Ankeny, Iowa
Introduction I am a happy housewife, living in Iowa, and I am married to a retired Marine, now a paramedic/firefighter. I have owned my own business, worked for the government and have worked and volunteered for some jobs just for fun, so I believe I have earned my right to stay home and play! I love to quilt, knit, stitch, DIY, read and obsess over my garden, which although small is very cherished. I am a proud member of the Iowa Food Coop and a Maryjane Farm Girl sister. I am no shrinking violet and tend to be straightforward. Also, I rarely use measurments when I cook and no one has died yet :)
