Welcome to Life Over Here, where we embrace the joys of rural living, family, and the simple pleasures of gardening, cooking, and homeschooling!

I’m thrilled to share my journey with you! For over three decades, I’ve dedicated myself to education, serving as a reading specialist, technology lab director, and distance learning supervisor. Through my experience in teaching, I’ve honed my skills in guiding young minds and fostering a love for learning.

But my expertise extends beyond the classroom. I was raised in a home filled with the aroma of freshly cooked meals and the beauty of flourishing gardens. My daddy, a dedicated gardener and farmer, instilled in me a deep appreciation for the land and the art of cultivation. Meanwhile, my momma, an OG lunchroom lady, imparted her culinary wisdom, teaching me the secrets of creating delicious and nourishing meals.

In addition to my passion for education and culinary arts, I have a keen eye for capturing the beauty of rural life through fine art photography. Specializing in rural photography, I strive to showcase the natural splendor and tranquility of the countryside.

As a mother, I’ve had the privilege of raising two wonderful children who have grown into happy and successful adults. Now, as a hands-on grandparent, I am actively involved in homeschooling and nurturing the next generation. Together, my family and I reside on a multi-generational homestead spanning 40 acres, each of us with our own cozy house.

At Life Over Here, I invite you to join me on a journey of growth, discovery, and connection. Let’s cultivate our gardens, whip up delicious meals, and teach valuable life skills to our children and grandchildren. Together, we can create a thriving community rooted in love, learning, and togetherness.

Welcome to our homestead!
