This blog thing is a learning experience to me...I am a Medical Technologist by day, and am in pursuit of happiness by way of adventure as often as possible. I love the outdoors, activity, kayaking, animals, people, and geocaching. I am currently enjoying kayaking, hiking, camping, traveling... All with husband, dogs, and as many friends as I can drag along. I also like to use my kitchen as a laboratory... Currently I am exploring the world of fermentation. I have some zazzle and cafepress print on demand stores that I like to design stuff. Zazzle.com/medical people, zazzle.com/aslstore, zazzle.com/wildones, cafepress.com/peopleacronyms to name a few. Thank you for visiting. See my Pinterests https://www.pinterest.com/boco888/ And check out my Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Beckys-Designs-330440593772619/
