My name is Susan and I love to make new friends. I like to give (and receive) encouragement.

My husband's name is Matt and we have been married for eight years. He is a wonderful, wonderful man. We have three dogs (pug, German shepherd, min pin), a kitten named Darcy (I love Pride and Prejudice), and nine chickens. I love the idea of raising my own food, and I would like to add a cow and pig and maybe a few goats to my zoo some year.

I am trying an organic, heirloom garden this year. I am super excited about my tiny little plants that are sprouting up.

I teach English and work in a library. I love to read, write, ride my motorcycle, bake, take pictures, hike, bike, camp, and now kayak!

Personal Information:
I am a 28-year-old Christian from Ohio. I am married and we have an adorable pug named Diefenbaker. We also have a German shepherd named Draco, an adopted kitten named Darcy, and a minpin named Sissy. Last month, I added nine chickens to my zoo. Can't wait for those free-range eggs! :)

I love to read, write, and bake. I adore Masterpiece Theatre movies (the classic ones, like Jane Eyre, etc.), and my favorite band is Gaelic Storm, but I like a lot of different kinds of music.

    Well hello there and thank you! The picture is actually from a water system museum. It talked about how much water is used to make a bun, cheese, the burger, and everything else. Of course once I saw the gaint cheese burger I HAD to get inside haha. I then knew how all those burgers feel when headed into my mouth. Thanks again. emoticon

    Glad you like my "innie-outie" oranges! When I saw that poor-deformed specimen, I had to get creative:)
    (PS - it tasted great!)

    Ok, the first one on the list would be R. West, The return of the soldier. Followed by the Harry Potter series. I know! I never really sat down to read that and so this summer may be an opportunity. Officially, the summer does not start for me before July 30 though...

    Hope you are making progress! Have a blessed Sunday.
