Hey there, I’m Terri, and let me tell you, has become my latest cyber crush! Crafted with oodles of love, it’s like my virtual baby, reflecting all the passion and dedication I pour into it. I’ve been weaving tales in the blogosphere since way back in 2001 – yep, I’m practically a blogging dinosaur!

My taste buds dance to the tunes of tea parties, real butter (none of that fake stuff!), and meals made from scratch – talk about culinary bliss! Oh, and let’s not forget about homemade pies, chocolate-covered strawberries, and coffee. Lots and lots of coffee.

I’m all about those culinary marathons – give me a meal that takes hours to prepare, and I’m in my element! Yep, I’m that person who spends just as long cooking as they do eating. And as for vegetarianism? Well, let’s just say life without steak is like a day without sunshine – not happening in my kitchen!

I swear I was born in the wrong decade! Picture this: me, a flower child of the ’60s, dreaming of owning a cozy Victorian bed & breakfast. Sounds dreamy, right? Well, reality had other plans, thanks to a pesky failed back surgery that left me with a lifetime membership to the Chronic Back Pain Club. But hey, at least I can still rock those vintage vibes!

So, picture this wild ride: I came into the world smack dab in the groovy ’60s, born to a mom and dad who couldn’t be more different if they tried. They split when I was knee-high to a grasshopper, but guess what? After four decades of separate journeys, they suddenly realized they needed to become friends for our sake! Cue the cosmic sitcom laughter! Nope, they didn’t end up back together – instead, they both found their true soulmates elsewhere. Ah, the twists and turns of life – gotta love ’em!

When I’m not busy dishing out reviews and spilling the beans on lifestyle tips, you’ll find me nose-deep in a book. Yep, I’m a certified bookworm – give me anything to read, except for what I affectionately call “housewife porn,” a.k.a. Harlequin Romance. Oh, and instructions? They might as well be written in hieroglyphics!

I’m all about that mix and match life – eclectic, retro, boho, gypsy, hippie, vintage, cottage, Victorian, and Shabby Chic are my jam! With style in my DNA, I’m a true-blue girlie girl, and fashion isn’t just a hobby, it’s a way of life. And when I’m not dolling up, you can bet I’m playing HGTV with my home and garden decor, because who doesn’t love a good furniture shuffle?

My top hobby is photography. Photography is the only hobby where I can shoot people and cut their heads off legally.

I’ve got a bit of a green obsession – I’m all about growing fruits, veggies, herbs, and flowers, and let’s not forget my ever-growing collection of houseplants! You see, my mom passed down her legendary green thumb to me, and I’ve been nurturing plants like a pro ever since.

When it comes to music, I’ll be the first to admit I’m no expert – but boy, do I love it! My playlist is always on, setting the vibe for whatever I’m up to. And hey, in another universe, I’m pretty sure Luke Bryan would’ve walked down the aisle with me – I mean, who could resist this charm? You can try to convince me otherwise, but good luck with that!

I may have hung up my nursing scrubs early due to a rocky road of failed back surgery, but hey, every cloud has a silver lining, right? Now, I channel my inner clean freak and share my adventures with all of you fine folks. So, while my back may be out of commission, my spirit remains unbreakable – and trust me, there’s never a dull moment in my world!

Pinterest is my ultimate obsession – I’m convinced it holds the key to transforming my humble abode into a haven of dreams! After dedicating a solid eight months to renovating my fixer-upper cottage, I’m in desperate need of some serious Pinterest inspiration. From DIY hacks to interior design tips, you name it – I’m ready to dive headfirst into the world of pinspiration!

I proudly wear my Christian badge, but let’s get one thing straight – I’m far from perfect. Being a Christian simply means I’m a sinner saved by Grace. My faith is my anchor, my guiding light, and my source of strength. He’s not just my God; He’s my Savior, my King, and the rock on which I stand.

When it comes to sports, let’s just say I’m the ultimate benchwarmer. I’ve never been one to shine on the field or court – in fact, I’ve always been about as useful as a screen door on a submarine! But hey, we can’t all be MVPs, right?

You know the saying, “Live fast, die young”? Well, I’ve always been more of a “Live forever, so far so good” kind of person! Call me optimistic, but hey, I’m not doing too shabby on the longevity front – here’s to many more adventures ahead!

Nuff said.
