About Me and This Blog

I am a mother of 5 biological children and also a foster parent.  My husband and I have been married since 1998.  Both my husband and I grew up in Southern California.  We loved growing up there.  That is where we where married, in the beautiful San Diego Temple, and our 3 oldest where born.  We now live in Southeastern Idaho and love it here.  Our twin youngest where born here.  We love visiting California and our friends and family there every few years.

We have been through a lot together.  We have had our struggles and our joys.  Lately it seems like it is just the struggles.  I am trying to find the joy more often.

I’m bipolar and also have anxiety and depression.  The struggles I have been through have led me to fight for others going through the same things.  I have had the fortune of being placed in situations that have allowed me to learn skills that many don’t get the chance to learn.  One of my main missions in life is to help others not go through what I have.

Mental wellness is important and even possible for everyone.  Join me as I learn more about it and a few other of my passions in life.  My edible gardening helps with my mental wellness.  Give it a try, it might help you too!
