Loreeebee is the proud mom of three sons, grandmother of six beautiful children, and wife of the same man for 38 (and counting) years. The name Loreeebee originated years ago when, as their team manager, I was dubbed Lori B by my son’s hockey teammates.
After 30 years as a medical laboratory technologist in a local hospital, I retired and pursued my dream. Since 2012 I have been the proud owner of Gardens4u where I design, plant, restore and maintain gardens. Check out the Gardens4u tab on the menu of this blog for before and after pictures of many gardening projects. Or watch these gardens grow in time-lapsed video format on my YouTube channel.
During the cold winter months here in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada blog posts are much more frequent. While the main niche is health and wellness, I also share my expertise on gardens as well as stories about my adorable grandkids, and even opinions on sports events. The inspiration for these posts comes from my daily life and reflects my opinions and experiences. Some posts are just plain (sometimes silly, always emotional) rants. I also offer the opportunity for guest posts to entrepreneurs and even new bloggers. If you think you have a (must be 100% original, not posted anywhere else) article or post that would be a good fit with my blog, contact me. Of course, I reserve the right to pick and choose (and possibly edit) from those that are submitted. Regardless of whether I can use your submitted articles or posts, I will get back to you. If I do agree to accept a guest post, I will include a link to the author’s website and include their bio.
I would love to hear from you at Loreeebee@gmail.com or in the comment section of each post. Comments and suggestions are always greatly appreciated and are often inspirations for my posts. Keep them coming!
