My family and I live in coastal Maine. We live in a relatively large college town with lots to offer and GREAT people! We live on less than an acre of land, but are trying to maximize the use of our space more and more each year. We dream of living on a farm with "acreage", but...would also miss our terrific neighborhood if we were to move. We have a small vegetable garden in the front yard (the only spot with enough sun), perennial beds surrounding our home (want to come and weed for me?), a colorfully painted (purple and bright yellow) two-story chicken coop out back housing six fiesty chickens who have yet to lay, our beloved chocolate lab, and three active kiddos aged 9, 7, and 5.
I have a masters of science in occupational therapy. Although I do not practice professionally as an OT these days, I do use the knowledge I gleaned from my education and training every single day with my own children.
We live life to the fullest. We ski, skate, and play in the snow in the winter. We swim, boat, and explore in the summer. We try to take advantage of all that the four seasons here in Maine have to offer us as we live and learn together as a close knit family.
I have been blogging since 2007. In the spring of 2013 I had a "moment". Well, maybe more of a few weeks..of pondering this blogging thing. I started asking myself questions and trying to figure out why on earth I was sharing so much online. I decided to take a break. Well, after a summer off from blogging (I will admit, I posted a lot on Facebook during that summer!), I decided to give it a shot again... I get a lot of pleasure out of connecting with friends around the world online and look forward to continuing this blogging journey.
