Who is Eggs & Herbs?

When I left my home in Vermont at the age of 18 to attend college in Arkansas I never imagined I would never really live there again. I never imagined I would marry a Southern Boy. I never imagined I would be an Art Teacher. I never imagined I would own tractors. (Yes, more than one!)  I never imagined anything that is my life now but it is the best thing I never knew I wanted!

In less than 7 months I met my husband Richie, fell in love, changed my major, DIDN’T graduate, got married and moved permanently to Arkansas.  Richie who loves the Rolling Stones would say, “You can’t always get what you want, but if you try, sometimes, you just might
find, you get what you need!”  And need him I did! (Well I wanted him too, so I lucked out!)

So I found myself living in the country on 200 acres of land complete with barns, sheds, horses, barn cats, dogs and tractors.  I was now seeking a degree in education instead of graduating with a degree in Interior Design.  I was in love and loving every minute of it.

Fast forward twelve years. I am a full time art teacher with a love of all things artsy and crafty.  Nothing can get rid of that internal junky junk better than some paints and a paint brush.  I am now growing a large herb garden and raising chickens. I sell my goodies at the local farmers market.  I discovered I have a love for writing and connecting with other people.  I found that I love to cook and experiment in the kitchen.  I found that I love to travel. Over the last twelve years I have discovered so many things about myself.

My life is an eclectic mix of fun and exciting things and I hope to bring you some nuggets of deliciousness that I collect throughout my
everyday life.  I am so glad you are here!

Hi! I’ve just started to explore your site – it looks wonderful. The first thing I found was the slow cooker spaghetti sauce, and I’m hoping you can recommend a slow cooker that’s dependable, doesn’t overheat and scorch, etc. Any thoughts/tips on them? Thanks! Lily

Found you through your comment on another blog. I’m also from Arkansas and teach art in a smaller school district. I’m not sure how to follow your blog (WordPress is confusing to me.), but I’ll try to check back with you occasionally.
