Welcome, I’m Vicki.  I have been married to Rob for 16 years and we have 3 children, ages 7 (twins) and 10.  I’ve been a full-time SAHM for the past 5 years and prior to that worked part-time in the medical field.  I created a small gourmet preserves business in 2013, MESSMAKERBAKER GOURMET PRESERVES, LLC.  I currently run this business from our home in rural, northwest Ohio.  Our life, as a family of 5, is filled with joy, challenges, laughter, and all of the realities life can bring.  This space will never be used to hide that reality.  Instead, I hope to create a space that will encourage you with words, recipes to fill you up, a few of my favorite things, and more than anything, a relaxed atmosphere that will leave you anticipating the next post.  More importantly, I believe that God sent His son, Jesus, to die on the cross for our sins so we may have eternal life with Him (John 3:16).  If you get one thing from this space, my hope for you would be to leave this Earth with the knowledge and acceptance of Christ as your one and only Savior.
