I’m Judy, the owner of this blog.
I’m a wife, mom of 11, grandma to many, of Finnish descent. I live up on a ridge in the Ocooch Mountains and this blog is about my life…through my lens.
I started blogging 5 years ago on April 28, 2007 and so much has changed in those 5 years, not only with my blog, but with my life.
My husband and I moved to Southwest Wisconsin in August of 2010 from Northeast Illinois, dragging our youngest child with us (I’m happy to say she wasn’t kicking and screaming). Since then we have become empty nesters and are enjoying it.With our children spread out to 4 different areas of the country we get to travel more which is HUGE!
I turned 50 in 2011 and I'm counting on my 50's to be amazing!
Not much different in this department. I still blog about my life, but with lots more photos and a lot less words. I love to take pictures; my camera goes with me whenever I walk out the door, well almost always.
I blog about my sewing, quilting (which I had just taken up since moving to Wisconsin), knitting, cooking, baking, family and our life here on Gentle Hearth Farm, as we call our little piece of the world. We make maple syrup from the maple trees on our land, it's fun and delicious, we also garden and grow strawberries.
I do a few fun memes and I get to see other wonderful blogs.I thank you for stopping by, and please leave a comment so that I know you did.
