Mom in the Garden is …

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…

I am a triathlete. (If you can’t smile and have fun while your competing, it’s not worth doing.)
