As a child I ate Swedish and Italian cuisine: Swedish Christmas cookies and pastries and Homemade Raviolis and Garlic Bread. My mother's idea of love? Scrambled eggs cooked in butter with a pool of butter on top! (My kids think I made this up, but I really didn't) Yet now I am older and wiser, I hope, and I want to eat foods good for my body and mind. This is a great site for being encouraged!

I have prayed for this opportunity for a long time.

It's a great place to store your mothering instincts!

I currently have a 3 year old Australian Shepherd female, Contessa, we adopted January 1st. Great breed! We have had a Standard Schauzer; an Irish Setter, and a big Airedale (90+ lbs) .

We live by beautiful, ever changing Lake Superior.

    Hi Carly,
    Just checking in and saying hi! Hope you are having an excellent week. My daughter went back to school today (1st grade), so things will finally get back to a normal routine. My 4-year-old starts his Pre-K class next week and he is very excited as well, so both the kids will be back on a schedule which makes them both very happy!
    Take Care!

    You're no longer a Minnesotan either, huh? It will always be home to me, that's for sure. Luckily we're only 15 minutes away for "home" and so I go there often: to church, to the clinic, to the dentist and of course to visit my friends.
    Where do you live now?
    I'm struggling to lose weight for the millionth time ... Spark People sure are a BIG help!!
    I've become a member of the Dr. Phil team started by Reva (3twins) and find it VERY helpful. I've set my goals for September, the big one being not eating after suppertime!!
    Thanks for the hug you sent me ... sorry it's taken me so long to say it.
    So now you're a grandma ... great ain't it?? I just posted a blog on my page about 2 of my 8 grand kids ... funny how I could brag on and on forever.
    I LOVE being grandma ... you will too.
