About me

Occupation wife, mother, Junkflirt owner
Location North Dakota, United States
Introduction North- I have lived most of my life in ND. Clean air, wide open spaces,golden fields, small towns and low crime. A great place to live. People are nice and it is comfortable but the winters get long... real long. South- Much of my family is in the South, I miss them. I love the culture, the hospitality, strangers that hug your neck and give ya some sugar. I love the great food and sittin' on the porch swing sippin' sweet tea. I have a husband and two wonderful kids, lots of great friends here in ND, my roots grow deep here, they anchor me. If you look at a sunflower it grows strong and tall because of those roots, yet, you will see it turn it's head searching for the warm sun. Plants will often twist and turn and stretch to get where they want to go. My soul wanders for or from contentment at times, like that flower looking for the warm sun of the South. Bloom where your planted, that is the saying. Sometimes I rest here, sometimes I stretch, yearning and twisting, searching for what I miss, I guess that is why I am a Southern Belle with Northern roots.
Interests I love to study the Bible I also enjoy the garden, growing vegetables, herbs and flowers, canning and baking and a little scrapbooking. I have 2 almost grown children and have home schooled them the past 10 years, my youngest will graduate in 2011.
