Hi I’m Teressa Morris. 14 years ago I was a homeschooling mom of two boys who really thought I knew where life was taking me.
Then in 2004 my husband, Art, was recalled from his position as an Air Force reservist to the active Air Force for the second time since 9/11. He used this second year away from his “regular job” to rethink his life.
Before I knew it, we were opening a retail golf shop. I became the co-owner/bookkeeper/homeschooling mom. It was quite an adventure and we all learned a lot about business AND relationships!!
In 2009 we were forced to close our business due to the downturn in the economy. Art had a hard time finding a job that would support us. I started selling stuff on eBay and opened my own bookkeeping business. I have been the sole provider for our family for the past 8 1/2 years.
As a young teenager, our younger son was diagnosed with depression and anxiety, which led to many doctor’s visits, psychiatrist’s offices and medication changes.
As an older teenager, our oldest son came out as transgendered and became the person she had always been, our beautiful daughter.
I have been married to my very patient husband Art for the past 30 years. We have two beautiful adult children and two silly dogs. In 2016, we moved from our hometown in Napa Valley, California, to the Umpqua Valley of Oregon.
In my free time (what free time?) I enjoy creating new recipes, reading, knitting and sewing, walking, yoga, and hanging out with my family.
I started blogging in late 2010, just as a way to wrap my head around all the changes we were going through as a family. In 2012 I realized that people were actually interested in reading about my life, and took the blog professional.
I typically blog twice a week (sometimes more) about topics as varied as recipes and DIYs, book and product reviews, and giveaways, as well as continuing to talk about my crazy family and to discuss subjects that are dear to my heart, such as bullying, transgender issues and charitable causes.
