Once upon a time there was a little girl who dreamed of far away lands, castles, cottages, knights, secret gardens, beautiful long dresses, and talking animals. The little girl grew up and married Prince Charming, and they moved to a peaceful kingdom and filled their humble little cottage with lots of princes and princesses. Seven of them. The oldest, Princess Cate, married a Prince Charming of her own. Sadly, they moved to a far away land and don’t visit often, but they are happily busy raising their own little princesses, Aliyah and Norah. Prince Josh grew up and moved away to a magical land filled with palm trees, sun and warm weather.

The other five still live in the cottage – Prince Zach (17), Princess Maddie (15), Princess Emma (8), Princess Sophie (7), and Prince Silas (5). All of them are cottage-schooled to keep them from the clutches of an evil Wizard who steals children for his own, and because they all really prefer to be at home learning life together. Prince Charming spends his days slaying fire breathing dragons. The little-girl-who-grew-up still dreams of secret gardens and beautiful long dresses and spends her days trying to fill their cottage with beauty and joy.

Hello! My name is Tanya and I’m so glad you stopped by to visit.  Grab a cup of coffee or tea and settle in for a visit and maybe a story or two.  Looking for more about who I am? Well, besides wife to my amazing husband, and Mama to seven children ages 5 – late 20s, I’m Babcia to 2 sweet granddaughters, I’m a Christ follower, I love to sew, love to knit, love to read, we homeschool (18 years!), garden, keep my critters – at last count 3 goats, 11 chickens, 5 cats and 1 parrot, and try to live as simply as our very busy lives allow, all from our little corner of the world in Maine. I love a good fairy tale and a happy ending
