About Me

Hi, I’m Cheryl.  I am a book loving, sun adoring, bike enthusiast, and I have been on a journey for the last couple of years of regaining my health and vitality.  Laid off my corporate job in the late summer months of 2009, I embarked on a “its-high-time-you-spent-some-time-on-yourself phase of life after raising three sons and two husbands. I mean, I didn’t raise the husbands, their mother’s did a fine job of that. But, you know what I mean. Little did I know that going on a diet would literally change my life.

I am currently married to Mr. Sweeney who, by day, draws pictures with a computer on big blue sheets of paper and, by night talks. ALOT. 🙂 Loves to talk. Between the two of us we have five children, mostly grown, and we (the Mr. and me) live in a small condominium in the ‘burbs of Minneapolis. Every year we vow we will move to the tropics before the snow flies again.

I love to garden, mostly herbs, get a creative kick out of decorating our tiny space, am a pretty good cook. I am also an independent distributor for Send Out Cards. Oh, and I also am a writer. Usually. When I write. I do have a book in me. I swear it.

We are normal people, take our vitamins every day, try to exercise regularly and eat our vegetables, but we are also human and can down an entire Broadway Pizza together when we feel like it. We love Jesus, believe that love always wins and are finally to the point in our lives when its not all about us.

I am very much looking forward to getting to know all of you in this little corner of the blogosphere and am really glad you’re here!

  1. omg, we are two kindred spirits … my hubs and I have three sons (now 18, 21, and 23) and we also vow to move to the tropics someday. I take vitamins, exercise, eat lots of veges and I believe that love wins!
