Happy Valentine's Day!
Mini Chocolate Snickers Cheesecakes
I made for my Valentines.
“I don't pretend to know what love is for everyone, but I can tell you what it is for me; love is knowing all about someone, and still wanting to be with them more than any other person, love is trusting them enough to tell them everything about yourself, including the things you might be ashamed of, love is feeling comfortable and safe with someone, but still getting weak knees when they walk into a room and smile at you.”

My "Sleeping Beauty"
“A healthy self-love means we have no compulsion
to justify to ourselves or others why we take vacations,
why we sleep late, why we buy new shoes,
why we spoil ourselves from time to time.
We feel comfortable doing things which add quality and beauty to life.”

Spent the day shopping in Sioux City with my daughter.
Came home to find that Jeff had hung my "new treasure" on the wall.
This was the bathroom mirror, while I was growing up.
It hung in the same spot for as long as I can remember.
It amazes me how you put an item in a different atmosphere
and it totally takes on a new personality.
I love my new "heirloom"!

Where I Live:
Named after a railroad engineer's daughter, Alta was incorporated in 1878 at the highest point on the Chicago-Illinois railroad. Proximity to rail transportation helped Alta develop into a solid farming community.
Agribusiness is still the mainstay of our community, but new industries - like the production of electricity by sleek wind turbines dotting our countryside - have drawn a rich mix of new residents from diverse backgrounds to Alta.More than 1800 people call Alta home today, and many others who live in the surrounding rural areas enjoy our shops, parks, and schools. We welcome you to come and explore Alta. Catch our energy!
“Home is home, be it ever so humble”
