Who is mom in the garden? I’ve been thinking about this post for a while, because all of what I’m doing now comes from many years (ok, not THAT many) of amazing experiences and influences. I wanted to give you an idea of who I am and what makes me tick. I have a strong focus on faith, eating well, exercising, and having fun. I’m sure it won’t include everything, but here’s a peek at some of the things I’ve been involved in which have brought me to this place in time, in my garden, in Ireland. Let me introduce myself…
