Hi, I’m Angie! This is my family.
LEMONS LIFE & READING
Hey, everyone! Thanks for stopping by!
Hi! I’m Angie. I’m a wife, mom of two adult children, Early Retired Instructional Assistant at a local school, reader, and writer from Central Indiana. I have many random interests, but no matter what I’m doing, I would almost always rather be reading.
I married my husband, Tim, in July 1992. We met on a blind date with a mutual friend of my mom’s and my mother in law. We are big fans in watching TV Shows and Movies. My favorites are The Hallmark Movies, Gray’s Anatomy, When Calls The Heart, God Friended Me, Firefly Lane, Virgin River, and Sweet Magnolias. Some of these shows I am waiting on the next season to come out.
A few months after we got married, we bought our first house and still live there today. Our firstborn, Zachary, arrived in April 1999, and his sister, Megan, completed our family in November 2001. Our life has had a lot of ups and downs, but who doesn’t. My husband is in the computer field and I have changed my work status over the years and have worked part-time primarily unless I was home. I stayed home with my kids when they were 3 and 5 till they entered 6th and 8th grade.
Other things I love include books, budgets, chocolate, goals, hallmark movies, small-town movies, medical movies, adult coloring, jigsaw puzzles, crochet, cross-stitch. I love farmhouse decor, wax warmers, candles, and all things vintage.
I have always loved the way old farmhouses are set-up I know that I will not own one now, so I just work on decorating my current house in the farmhouse theme. I crave a simpler, slower life. I am not a big fan of being extremely busy and stressed out. My favorite drinks are sweet tea or coke. I would rather have sweet tea if there is an option.
My favorite season of the year is summer because I love wearing flip-flops, seeing flowers, having bonfires, spending time with my neighbors, and grilling out. My favorite holidays are Christmas and July 4th!
I have an Associate’s Degree in Medical Assistant but have not worked in that career for a very long time. I am currently working as an Instructional Assistant with Special Needs 6th – 12th grade four days per week during the school year. I probably should have been a librarian since I love to read so much.
Lemons Life and Reading is a place to help you. I provide topics on life, reading books, Information on Movies, recipes, goals, frugal living, money-saving deals and in the future will be some farmhouse posts and other topics. I will also be writing about tips if you are interested in blogging.
History of this Blog:
I started this blog in 2015 under the name “Frugal Families Live Green”. My intention was to primarily talk about living green, however, as several years have passed I found more topics that were also my passion. I soon decided I needed to change the name to include reading, which is a very big passion of mine. In the year 2018, I launched a new site with the name Lemons, Life, and Reading. Lemons represent the recipes and cleaning. Life represents all topics that have to do with life balance, simplicity, minimalism, and living with less, so can enjoy life more. The reading represents anything that pertains to books and reading. Reading books has been a passion of mine since I was a teenager.
I created this blog in order to help me be accountable for different things in my life I need to get done. Some of those items are reading books, watching movies, working on finances and getting out of debt, and decluttering different areas of my life. I also love to find new recipes to try.
You will also see topics on this blog about living green, which is the reason for the Lemons in the title. You will see posts about using products without chemicals including vitamins, supplements, laundry detergent, cleaning supplies, and room sprays, etc. I get mine from a company called Melaleuca and Grove Collaborative. I like products from both of these companies.
I, also love to read all kinds of books, which is another one of the topics you will see here.
