Hey Y’all, I am beginning a journey and want to bring you along. This is my story. I began travel nursing in 1993. I took my kids with me and while in Florida I met the man I have been married to for 25years the Love of My Life, Ed. We always knew we wanted to continue to travel and struck out. 2 adults, 2 kids, 1 bird and 1 dog. To involve the kids, we took a map of the United States and asked our kids to point to where they wanted to live. We traveled all of the corners of the US and in-between. Now we have children in Washington, Kentucky, Norway and Italy. We enjoy our travels to spend time with them. I also miss the time I spent in the kitchen with my Mammaw. I noticed that many skills my grandmother, Shelva Benson Pearson (and other influential women in my life) taught me have not been handed down to the next generations. So after pondering why, I realized it is really because living so many miles from each other is the norm for many families now-a-days this making it hard to pass down your heritage, home remedies, recipes, cooking techniques, etc. I was born and raised in Louisiana. Passing this down to my family is so important. Many of my friends and acquaintances ask for recipes, spice information, gardening, canning, etc. My friends and family love the stories from being raised in Sarepta and Springhill, Louisiana. So I put together a place where I can share stories from my raising, share my recipes, share laughs and smiles. I hope you enjoy all to come! Stay tuned.
