My empty nest in the midwest. Established 2 0 1 6.
Hello! I am a daughter, sister, wife and mom. My proud accomplishments include being married to a wonderful man and we have raised two kind boys. I have two older sisters and we are first generation born Americans since our parents immigrated to the U.S. from Latvia in the 1940's. I rely on my faith in the Lord to help me keep putting one foot in front of the other.

It’s the season of renewal – praise God. The time outdoors just flies by – cleaning up the flower beds, weeding, getting my hands dirty – truly in my happy place.
I am unsure if continuing a blog is something I still want to pursue. I enjoy writing and taking photos, but the blog set-up, plug-ins, new releases is a complete mystery.

What I seem to make time for is Facebook, Pinterest and laundry(washed, dried, but not folded and not put away). Continue reading “The Morning Star at my Door”
I am currently reading the Poldark series by Winston Graham. Have you heard of this series? I actually first found Poldark while surfing on TV. It is a BBC/PBS television series based on the Winston Graham historical book series set in the late 18th century in Cornwall England. By the way, Aidan Turner plays the title role and he is an eye-catcher! Continue reading “Today’s Book”
