Who am I?
I am a mom of three children… Ms. A, Mr. D, and Dragon. With Dragon joining our family via a seven year international adoption with China. I am a devoted (but an awful cook) wife to my Hubby, who I have known since high school. I am a very responsible pet owner to a crazy dog who is always up to something. I am a skiing fanatic, who volunteers her time to the local ski resort as a Patroller.
I did go to school and work for ten years doing a job that many often questioned. I started off my professional life as a special education teacher. But just not any old classroom would do…I loved working with an amazing group of kids who seemed to be “lost” in the system. My specialty was teaching emotionally and behaviorally disturbed children. These labels seemed to change constantly and in my final years of teaching, I was working in a locked down psychiatric facility. When finally becoming pregnant, it was no longer safe to be working in that atmosphere and I was blessed in the ability to “retire” and stay home. I then became what I currently still am… full time Mom.
Now, ten years later, I am starting over with both a new baby and attempting a small business from home. I was given the advice to find something you love to do and make it work. I am a plant lover of both indoor and outdoor. With the climate we have here in Ohio, I have developed a love for succulents. These great little plants thrive on neglect and do great in our home. This is were I found inspiration for my small business. I love to design and plant these beautiful little gardens, why not try to sell them.
Hubby built me a great little greenhouse and I have all the supplies and plant stock I need. I may just end up having my own personal gift store to use or might actual sell something. We will just have to wait and see.
