About Me:

I am a native of Ames, Iowa and enjoy cooking, photography and crafts.   To keep healthy, I like to try something new, whether it’s new foods or old foods prepared in new ways.  I also try to find different ways to move during the week.  In Fall 2015, I tried something brand new for me– TaeKwonDo!!

*  OCTOBER 2015:12977173_1136465516404117_5880332609645244733_o

After contemplating TaeKwonDo for years, I finally took the plunge.  I’m so glad I did.  It took courage and planning in my schedule to try something new.  I’m proud of my accomplishments and thankful for the new friends I’ve met.
