Time to update!!!!

A bit about me: I have several jobs, as the market where I live is very slow, like many are!! I first and foremost am a favorite job!! I have 3 grown kids..but they will always be my kids no matter how old they are!

I own a small custom bakery, which is across the street from my home. I specialize in wedding and celebration cakes and you can often see a picture of one posted on my blog!

Then comes the horse show announcing..I do this mostly for fun..I grew up with horses, my daughter showed for years and we had quarter horses, and I have one of those voices, so there you have it!!!

I had a knee replacement with major complications, and its been a long haul coming back. It will never be fully ok, but we do with what we are dealt, right?

I am 3+ years into keto. Down 150 pounds. At a healthy weight but would still like to try for 20 more just to see what it feels like to be normal according to the charts.

I have a keto line at the bakery, teach keto classes at the local BOCES adult ed center, and live it daily.

My girl Lucyfur continues to defy the odds and is still with me. Shes the light in my life these days (besides my kids!) and the reason i get up in the morning!! So happy that i've had almost 7 years more with her than the vets said i would. Hope she doubles that, or more!!!

I'm on the winter 5% team...GO FIRECRACKERS!!
