This blog covers lots of my life from 2007 until now. Go straight to blog or read more. Comments may be left by clicking on individual posts.
I have always tried to share love and joy and the truest beautiful dreams that were in my heart. My life has taken some rocky turns; basically, there’s a lot of life on this blog. It is all mine — the happiness and the pain.
My life took an amazing, beautiful turn when I picked up a guitar at age 50. Music is a very healing art form. Just try it.
I have four delightful children: a 27-year-old son, a 24-year-old son, a 21-year-old son, and a 17-year-old daughter. I homeschooled for 13 years. I love gardens, all things romantic, birds, and the color black. Always with a smile, I refer to my own personal style “gently gothic.”
I love painting and creating. I own a tiny shop called Sidetracked, full of my art, unusual finds, and lots of vintage and romantic clothing
A Mother’s Journal was created over seven years ago to share homeschool, housekeeping, gardening and crafting ideas. Over time, it has evolved into a place to share my love of music and self-healing.
I am an affiliate for several companies. You may occasionally see a link to one of them on my blog, likely with my affiliate link included so that I make a small percentage from any sale generated by way of review, etc. I may be asked to do a paid review by a website. If I accept that offer, I will always say so in my post . I’ll always be honest.
