About me

Occupation Homeschooling mom
Location Westmoreland, Tennessee, United States
Introduction Born in 1963,married in 1987,baptized in 1996, had my first baby in 1999, and moved to a mere two acres in rural TN in 2002 after a life spent in cities. I love my Catholic faith, being home with my crazy, amazing kids, and living in the country. If you want to know how I came up with "Patch O' Dirt" for the farm, it actually comes from The Secret Garden. Mary Lennox asks her uncle for "a bit of earth" in which to plant a garden. If Mary had been in Tennessee, she'd have asked for "a patch o' dirt."
