I’m a wife, mother of 2 beautiful girls and I work full-time outside the home. Aside from my full-time employment, my husband and I own a greenhouse operation where we grow bedding plants and vegetables, and we live in beautiful Atlantic Canada.
I also happen to be a recovering alcoholic and have been sober since December 05, 2015. Yes I HAD a drinking problem but I addressed it – don’t worry, it’s not contagious!!! LOL
I love inspirational quotes which is why I wanted to start this blog – It helps me stay sober and makes me appreciate life.
I also have another blog called Painted Plum – it’s a lifestyle blog where I post about my life after alcohol (in case you’re interested).
