James A. Garfield writing in early 1861, on joining the Union Army to fight in the Civil War: “I am big and strong, and if my relations to the church and college can be broken, I shall have no excuse for not enlisting.” At the time, Garfield was 29 years old. He was principal of the Western Reserve Eclectic Institute (now @hiramcollege) and also a Republican Ohio state senator. He was a lifelong member of the Disciples of Christ.
Garfield joined the Union army in August 1861 as a Lieutenant Colonel in the 42nd Ohio Volunteer Infantry.

Just over here living the best of both worlds!🤷🏼♀️👋🏼 I’m like the Instagram version of #hannahmontana except I’m not keeping it a secret. (It would be kewl if I did, but Instagram gurus say followers want to see your face so here I am revealing myself) BUT fun fact/true life/hello + welcome to the other half of me.
Sure I LOVE making healthy options, delicious foods, exercising and helping others, BUT I’ve also got this deep love + passion + desire to create & design. So here I am, living the best life & pursuing both my passions full heartily because life’s too short to not be doing what you love!💕
"Hi my name is Amy and I'm an empty nester". LOL I feel like you can just imagine me in a circle of other women meeting weekly to help support one another . LOL
But seriously, I was born and raised in Southeast Ohio. I graduated highschool, went to college, got married and had babies just like everyone else that I grew up with. I am a registered nurse by trade and I have been in the IT world for last 10 years. (which I love and fits my personality to a tee). I am 47 years old and have been married for 25 years. I have two grown children ages 24 and 22 and two of the cutest grand babies EVER!!! (Levi is 2.5 years old and Layle is almost 2 months)
We have moved several times in last 3 years (hubby 5 and me 3) and have lived in 4 different cities. Remember we consider ourselves "Half baked".......again, more to come on that later.
I Love anything to do with computers and I am one of the few that sees the benefit of social media and all the internet has to offer (minus all the negative posts of course). I am solar powered and the beach is my happy place. We lived in Florida for 3 years but you will learn about that later. I love entertaining, connecting with my friends, home making, cooking and all things fitness. I am not as into fashion as some bloggers but I do love a good bargain!! I have a wide range of taste when it comes to music, food, entertainment and just going out on weekends.
When I say we love to travel it is an understatement! Although I must admit, we have never really been anywhere extravagant (Italy, Paris etc) and most of our travel lately has been back and forth to Ohio to see the kiddos. But a girl can dream!~
We currently reside in Charlotte NC and I am trying to learn how to be a Southern Girl! Its harder than one might think!
Oh yeah we also run our own real estate investing company. Ha ha ha whats a little more stress? I told you we were crazy...but always BLESSED!
Till later~ (NOTE:as seen on my blog linked in bio)
