What are your favorite brands and why?

Some of my favorite clothes are from local thrift stores, where I also buy books and wall art.

What is your favorite restaurant?

Over the years, we have enjoyed many good meals at restaurants in our area. Grateful for all. And I like being home now, and seeing the seasons in the yard when we share meals. Sometimes we bring good meals home from local places. I worked at a bakery in high school, and a restaurant in college. And I enjoyed shopping for my mother and preparing meals at her home during what I call “the caregiving years.”

And I will be watching for butterflies and bees in our gardens.
