I can be a little overly nostalgic about my childhood, or so says my husband. Gotta make sure everything at home is in the right place.

piano

Mom somehow manages to keep the piano dusted. All.the.time. She’s amazing.

aloe

The aloe plant in case of a burn. Safety first, ladies and gentlemen.

books

These World Books circa 1986 answered many a dinnertime question before Google.

Bright flowers on the porch.

Farm

I even found the farm we had when we were kids. Early influence for my current career.

CRP

We took Chad on a tour of the DK County countryside. Old family land / now CRP.
