My husband and I are from Alaska, love being in Oregon tho, especially because of the numerous gardening opportunities. I'm new to gardening and loving it! Our home has a small yard and I've devoted most of it to gardening, half edibles half just for beauty! I have a passion and natural talent for connecting with and teaching children. I also love algebra, odd as that may be. I'm an amateur seamstress, small projects, some with some with out patterns. We have a dog who's very sweet and a couple cats who are totally spoiled.
