A little bit about me. I was born in Ventura California, a beach town with plenty of natural beauty, surfers, and Westfalias. I have lots of family and they all live in my town. I have a husband and three children, a beagle named Clover, and some extra kids that haven’t been picked up yet. I love beachcombing, vintage Ford trucks, ocean fishing, watching water polo and basketball games, mid century stuff, backyard bbq’s, the Eagles, turquoise, and drinking wine. I also love macramé and gardening. It is true that a garden is simply a plot of land, but it is also defined as “a public hall”, as in Madison Square Garden. This site is my effort to explore both of these; a personal space for me, and a way to share with you.
