Introducing myself and my new blog for 2013! I am the mom of 4 great kids and my loving husband of 23 years! They are my fab 5 and pretty special. Our children are ages 23 to 14. So , we are four years, count them 1 2 3 4, away from being empty nesters. Whoo Hoo! Sorry kids! Stop back often I’m sure you will find a note or picture or two about them from time to time!
My name is Mary and I live in a little, ok not so little, town in Iowa. We as a family love skipping around Iowa on a Sunday road trip taking pictures and strolling through towns. It’s our year round vacation of little trips here and there instead of a great big one!
I work part time out of the house so I get to be home before and after school and my weekends are off, another whoo hoo! However, since the kids are older and less demanding of my time I am kind of finding myself a little bored. Well, not really. I love to go scouting around at Flea Markets, Junk Shops, and Thrift Stores. I also enjoy decorating on nearly a dime, re-purposing items, crafting, reading books, (lots and lots of books), baking and well just a whole lot more! Anything that gets my creative mind going is pretty exciting for me.
Creating this blog and Twice The Story (had to do a plug for myself) is something I have always wanted to do. My dream job, I always thought, would be to drink coffee and visit with people!
At Twice The Story you can enjoy a good story for less with one of my previously read (that’s a fancy word for used) books, find something creatively handmade or upcycled, and more!I really look forward to sharing great things with you! Please pop in once in awhile for new updates and posts. Until your next visit, enjoy a cup of coffee, do something creative, and pick up a book, soon!
