About Me

Hi, I'm Jennifer. So glad you stopped by the website!!  I love cooking, gardening, and photography and this is a place where I can bring it all together to share with you.
I live in a beautiful area called Lake Quinault in the Olympic Rain forest. I'm married and have four children who were all raised here.
I'm always on the lookout for a good photo whether it be flowers, food, family, or the scenic area in which I live.  So many things, so little time!
I'm looking forward to you stopping by, and me finding more and more to share with you ♥
