Hi, I’m Jo!

I’m a wife, sister, daughter, friend and so grateful for all those amazing relationships! I love my wonderful husband with all my heart! He’s the best!

Family and friends are a huge part of our lives and we are very blessed to know the special people that we do.

Through God’s grace and love; I am a Christian.

I like baking. Unfortunately, I also like eating what I bake. I’m a size 10 (used to be 14) and fight major battles with myself to stay that way!

Once a skeptic, I now defend natural home remedies and love the ones I use.

I’m arty, creative, particular to the tiniest detail, hard-working, sociable, stubborn, and sometimes a perfectionist. I often take on too much and hold myself to an almost unattainable standard.

Work Is My Thing

I love work and I’m one of those people who hate, with a passion, being inactive! I multitask, even when it isn’t necessary. My husband and I have owned and run three successful businesses.

Recently, due to major economic decline, we decided to close down those businesses and move to a new country.

My husband, although a carpenter by trade, has farmed for most of his working life, and is currently doing just that. He loves it! I, among other things, am writing this blog.

 I don’t have a particular reason as to why I am writing it, other than having wanted to for some time and because… Why not?

I firmly believe that with hard work and finding the right balance we can achieve our dreams!
