Mr B and I fell in love in high school and finally got married three decades later. Between us, we have a flock of teen and twenty-something daughters, a couple of cats, a dog, and a whole lot of fun.
We hope you’ll feel at home here with us as we share our beautiful Pacific Northwest with you, including local events and destinations, art and artisans, fresh recipes, and of course, the amazing Portland food scene.
P.S. More than a few folks have asked me, “Why ‘The Good Hearted Woman’”? Usually while unconsciously humming ♫ ♫ “She’s a good hearted woman in love with a good timin’ man…” ♪♪ Well, I’ll be honest – even I can be caught humming a little Waylon and Willie now and then. (My sweetheart Mr. B is a talented country singer – how can I not?) But the real answer is pretty simple: a Good Hearted Woman is who and what I aspire to be. It is a journey.
Also, Mr. B really does have a pretty awesome voice. Click here to listen to him sing. (Prepare to be mildly jealous.)
