The Big 50 today....and my Mary Jane Farm Magazine Article came out!!

A half a century old!
A pic of Tory and I taken a few weeks ago...
I was sitting in Barnes and Noble this morning....
went and picked out a stack of magazines.....
and low and behold as I was reading the new issue of
Mary Jane Farm....
there was  the two page spread on
lil 'ole me!!
I wasn't expecting it to come out until Oct/Nov...
thus the surprise.

Thank you Deb from
for including me!
It's been fun to see it all come together.

I'm unveiling a 'New Journey'
for my 50th year!
I'll start posting about it tomorrow!

I'm determined to have a 'Happy and Productive' year,
and to get some things done that I've put on the back burner 
for awhile now.
I want to include you all!
It will be an "Interacting Journey"
and hopefully
we can all
be a positive influence on each other!!

Just from a lil 'ole 50 year old lady....
