I have had the pleasure of communicating with countless ladies who have decided to become housewives or are in the process of trying to become one. One of the biggest problems they've faced is having to listen to others scrutinize their choice. A lady, Kayla, who was an attorney and became a housewife told me that, coming from a family of doctors and lawyers in Manhattan, no one supported her choice.

Tonight for Easter dinner we will be having ham, sweet potatoes,cole slaw, stuffing, deviled eggs, and apple crisp, and of course my first batch of iced tea of the season.
It is always nice to see nature come back to life in Spring. So yesterday, with my husband, I got started direct sowing some flower seeds in the garden.
I am also planting tomatoes, spinach, and scallions aplenty this year. There is a lot of garden work to do, so we're doing a little each day.
We planted two apple trees last year in our front yard -- a red delicious and a granny smith. One of them has blooms this year, which means, we might start to get some apples on them already!
It would be so nice one day in the future years to have apple pies, apple jelly, candy apples, etc. to look forward to.
Enjoy your day and I'd love to read your questions and comments below!
