Getting started

My name is Kelly and I have a wide and varied life.  I am a Mom to two children, both adopted, who have survived traumatic early starts to their lives.  Parenting will be a frequent topic.  My oldest is 18 and just starting his Freshman year at college. It will be a rocky road as he has several mental health issues.

Baking is my true passion. I love to bake, but hate to cook.  It it involves flour, sugar and eggs, I'm probably willing to try the recipe.  I am learning to decorate cakes and cookies as well as the baking.

I am also a Christian and not ashamed to admit it.  I belong to the United Church of Christ and in a few weeks I will be starting my last year of the Lay Academy classes.  I work with our youth group at church and help teach Confirmation to 7th and 8th graders.

I am an avid reader, I love knitting and other crafts, and am working on being more fiscally responsible with couponing and sales.

All in all, my life is "normal" with a few twists thrown in.  I am a work in progress.  I am 43 years old and still don't know what I want to be when I grow up (except being a super baker that is._  Join me on the wild journey that is my life.


  1. Love the picture! Ah the sands of time...

    Can't wait to keep up with all your excitement!

  2. But hun, I'm about 70 pounds thinner than the last time you saw me, which was far too many years ago!! No more plus size clothes for this girl!
