Hey there...I'm a Mom, wife, daughter, sister, Aunt, animal lover/rescuer, friend, writer..part-time comedian (just kidding).  I am spontaneous, completely random...I laugh..a lot, even at myself.  I am forever the optimist..there is always a bright side...even when you think there's not!  I try my best to inspire, lift and encourage others. My Dad calls me Elizabeth, my Mom calls me by my sisters name 80% of the time..I'll answer to just about anything. My favorite name is Mom. I'm Mom to the funniest, brightest, most handsome teenager - who now drives...(whaaat!!)  He gives me more sleepless nights than I care to mention, but he also gives me a lot of laugh lines.  I am a future Ag teacher, a runner, gardener, I recycle just about everything..I love watching movies..the scarier the better.  I"m a stationery collector, baker, wanna-be farmer.  I enjoy getting lost in a good book.  Shopping is my guilty pleasure..I'm always in search of the best deal and I love vintage finds!  I aspire to be a homesteader, but until we find the perfect little gem we will just have to get as close as we can to homesteading in the suburbs.  I love to travel, and get the itch to wander and explore every few months or so..I love being adventurous and learning new things.  It's so fun to play the tourist, but also exciting to go somewhere you've never been and act like a local.  We have seven of the most precious pets that definitely hold my heart!!  We have two Westie's, Brodie and Winston, and a Great Dane named Scuba..We rescued him from doggie "death row"..he's the most obedient dog I've ever had..shhh don't tell my Westie's!   All of our dogs are seniors...not sure what I would do without any of them.  We have four laying hens; Hazel, Agnes, Stella and Cora. I am so very thankful to the Good Lord everyday for blessing me with such a wonderful, happy, healthy life. I have been blogging since February 2012.  Thank you so much for stopping by to read about life The Way I See it.
