January 2019!

By Jennifer Elders | January 13, 2019

Ok, wow. Just wow. Everything has flown by since I last chatted with you! Christmas was a whirlwind for sure. I started the vacation being sick for 4 days.

The not so fun Kitchen day

By Jennifer Elders | October 29, 2018

Ahh, where to begin.  I guess for starters I will tell you my dishwasher died about 3 weeks ago.  Part of the time I really don’t mind doing dishes by hand. But the other part, like today when I’m baking and cooking up a storm and making a mess, I really miss the dishwasher! I…

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 ♥
