default Greetings from Iowa

Post by NaturallySimple on 24th February 2011, 12:26 am

My name is Stephany and I live in Iowa City, IA. I discovered this site through a facebook group and I am quite glad that I did. It looks as thought it will be my cup of tea.

I have a blog that you can read if you really want to know more about me at http://naturallysimple.org/living/

For the time being I will just say that I am happy to be here and I am looking forward to poking around.

I saw that and it is much appreciated. There are so many wonderful topics in this forum, I am not quite sure where to start.

Well I am proud to say that all our content is freely given to all who want to use it (unlike a certain cult leader who shall remain nameless) and when someone tells me that I cannot do something, well, if my conscience tells me that they are wrong, then I will usually go out of my way to do it...

I generally do as I desire also, as long as it does no harm. I like your signature.

Peoria isn't too far from Iowa City, in the greater scheme of things.
