I am a Mom and grandmother, living in downeast Maine–have been a New Englander for longer than I care to admit. I became a soapmaker twelve years ago and have many interests. I’m an avid reader who loves to kayak. I can’t recall a time when I didn’t garden. For the past twenty three years I had an herb farm, where we raised culinary and medicinal herbs. This, plus a barnyard full of critters kept me pretty busy. I now garden simply for pleasure, as I can’t resist playing in the dirt. I adore cooking! Something I find very appealing–the ability to laugh at ones own self. The outdoors appeals to me, as do my moments of solitude. Life is Good! You can email me at ThymeGoesBy at gmail dot com.
