The Author

"Nature confesses that she has given to the human race the tenderest of hearts, by giving us the power to weep. This is the best part of us." (Roman saying) C.S. Lewis "Abolition of Man"

I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and follower of Christ.  I like shaking things up a bit to keep it fresh. I love dahlias and think life should be a musical.  I love the smell of bread baking in the oven, coffee in the early morning and the way used bookstores smell.  I could read, write, craft and cook all day.  This little blog started as a way for me to make comments on other people's blogs and I really had no plan with what I wanted to do with these pages.  But since then I've found a home where my family can share life long-distance with Hubs, the Love Bugs and I and where my words can tumble out, swirl around and make sense of themselves to all ya'll.

The common theme of all these posts is one thing: cultivating.  I named my blog that for a reason; to be a reminder that life is a process.  The greatest failure would be to forget that I'm on a journey and stop walking. 

I hope you'll enjoy the journey with me.
