Hello, my name is Lynn.
I’m a free-spirited woman.
Welcome to my blog as I take you on the journey of a woman in her third trimester of life as she walks to the beat of her own rhythm. You would think by now I would’ve conformed to mainstream living but for some reason, I resist it.
I was raised in a rural community in the midwest where dad worked and mom stayed home and emulated June Clever’s life. I dreamed of growing up, getting married, having children and a wonderful middle class life; like my parents had given me. I’d have warm cookies baked when the kids got home from school and a lovely dinner ready for my husband. Seriously, this WAS my dream!!! It wasn’t until after divorce when I learned that dreams aren’t necessarily reality. You see, I’ve been out of high school 40 years and of those years I’ve only been married 8 1/2 of them.
When I reached middle age, I learned I was an independent, free spirit and it was time to let my spirit soar!
“Instead of living the life I’d imagined, I’m living the life that presents itself. Everyday is a new opportunity and I wake up and hit the ground running, eager for adventure.” Self quote.
In addition to sharing my life experiences, I’ll also take you on culinary adventure. I have an obsession with food and I LOVE to cook! I cook, eat and share my recipes. Bon appetit ~
I hope you find humor, inspiration and a few good recipes for life and cooking as you read my blog. Enjoy!
