About Us


We’ve been married for 21 years, and despite everything, we hope to make it last (at least) another twenty. Learning what it takes to live a sustainable life, we have a precious garden that produces fresh veggies and herbs including our garden divas: the most expensive tomatoes you’ll ever find.

Vince is an Instructor for Murray State University’s English as a Second Language program. Mary Anne is a Special Projects Coordinator for Purchase Area Development District. We’re passionate about the environment, healthy living, and Murray State Racers basketball. We have a teenager, a beautiful niece, a slue of nephews, a beagle, and two cats. Our life is blessed.

My father use to say that once someone put their feet under our dinner table, they became apart family. We feel the same way.  Nothing makes us happier than to have friends and family cooking or just hanging out in our kitchen.

Most weekends, you’ll find us doing some sort of project, whether it’s cooking or gardening. Understand, our projects are as likely to fail as they are to succeed, as we’re not experts. We invite you to come along and share in our adventures.
