I am really excited and honored to share this with you all!  Jonathan at We Live Simply interviewed me for his Five Questions With series the other day.  It was so nice of him to share my blog with his readers and followers.  I am extremely grateful for his interest in what I’m doing, and the exposure he gave me. 

Make sure you check out his blog– it is a daily read for me now.  His posts are always original, thought-provoking and inspiring.

Thank you, Jonathan! 


Interviewed by Green Baby Green Mama

I had the pleasure of chatting recently with Heather, the main mama behind Green Baby Green Mama, about homeschooling.  I was homeschooled grades K-8 by my amazing parents, and it was a great experience for me.

I love talking about the good old homeschool days, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask!  I’m honored that Heather interviewed me for her blog.  Check it out here!
