I am a wife of 32 years, mom to one daughter and two sons. My husband and I are DIY'ers when it comes to home and garden projects. We built our house in 1988 on a vacant piece of property. Two of the cutest little boys ever call me Grandma. I am an RN part time and live on 4 acres near Yosemite. The statement "full of contradictions and old fashioned yet modern" describes me perfectly. I love vintage and antique things and have since I was a little girl rummaging through my grandparent's house. It is difficult for me to pass on an estate sale..... just ask my husband.
