I am a rancher's daughter, and I grew up in the Nebraska Sandhills. I have also lived in Missouri, Bolivia, and Germany, and most recently, Kentucky.
I have a husband of 30+ years, a daughter, a son, and a son-in-law, whom I love dearly. I am a Christian, a conservative, and a former school teacher. I have a deep respect for people who earn a living from the land. I enjoy history, family tree research, travel, books, sewing, crafts, flea markets, photography, writing , and life in general.
My blog Prairie Bluestem reflects my heritage, interests and viewpoints. I write in it when free time and inspiration coincide. I occasionally add to Easy Recipes. I haven't written in Tree Notes for a while, but I hope to continue it when I am not so busy.
