What are you growing, raising, producing, making?
Growing a garden. Raising 2 children. Producing home made beauty and health products. Making all sorts of things for home and family. These days, I am mainly making toys and entertainment for my 2 children, and building furniture and a tree house with my husband.
What kind of women do you admire?
All kinds of women. All of them.
I admire women who do not complain, but rather, find solutions to the problem at hand. I admire women who do not gossip, but rather, discuss new ideas. I admire women who aren't afraid to speak their mind. I admire women who are mentally strong. I admire women who are unique. I admire women who are artistic. I admire women who create. I admire women who own their flaws, and try to improve upon them. I admire women who embrace their imperfections. I admire women who are confident and comfortable in their own skin. I admire women who love others more than they love themselves.
How do you get your hands dirty?
