About Us

Hi, I'm Lynda. 
Thanks for visiting Flowers for Francis.

This little blog is my feeble attempt at sharing my 3 great loves:  my faith, my family, and the outdoors...in no particular order although the latter came first.

I claim the mountains of Kentucky as my home, and just recently moved back there from Missouri.  I should've been named Heidi because if I can't see mountains, whether it's the Ozark hills or the Appalachians, I get homesick.

I love doing anything outdoors, which nowadays, mostly involves keeping my two boys from disappearing into the woods and falling out of trees.    

I'm married to Tom, who also loves being outside, but not during what he calls "yellow-jacket season".  He's my biggest asset and much funnier and more talented than I could ever hope to be.   After 13 years of marriage, we are starting to get used to each other...but not quite. 

In 2010, after years (and years) of infertility, we were blessed with our son John.  Seven months after John was born, Joah was born and became ours through adoption.   Everyone thinks they are twins, and most of the time, we let them.  If we are lucky, we will be chosen to adopt again soon!

John is the over-analyzer and Joah is the over-achiever.   John's favorite hobbies include trying to figure out how the toilet tank empties after every flush and asking 60 questions in 60 seconds.   Joah's favorite hobbies involve trying to lift objects that are at least 50% of his body weight and consuming all of his calories in the first 3 hours of his day.

God knew what he was doing when he put these two little guys together and made them brothers and most days, Tom and I feel like we're just along for the ride.    I hope you can join us!
