Hi Everyone! Just wanted to say a quick hello and thank you for having me in your group. I'm an almost newlywed (just celebrated our first anniversary), and with the marriage, I'm Nana to a total of 8 grandies = 6 girls and 2 boys. Widowed in 2011, with 2 adult children, I was sure I'd be by myself for the rest of my life. God had other ideas, though, and in late fall of 2013, my childhood sweetheart (and forever friend) rediscovered the love for each other that we thought had long passed. Invited to visit after Christmas, 2013, Jim picked me up at my home and before we got through the next state on the way to FL, we were married. Needless to say, my 2-week visit turned out quite differently that either of us thought! We're not the kids we once were, of course, but we're both very happy and I'm having a ball providing my Jim with made-from-scratch meals and all kinds of goodies! He appreciates and enjoys whatever I make and is always very sure that he compliments the meal and thanks me for it. I look forward to finding new recipes and learning some techniques that will keep my love a "Happy Hubby"!
