Default Meet Your Challenge Hosts - ashjoy (Joyce)

Hi all. I 'm Joyce aka Ashjoy. Which is a combination of my name and my daughters name.

I am married to the love of my life and my true life hero. We have been together since I was in college. At age 34 he saved my life when I was having a stroke. Because of him I can say I'm a stroke survivor.

We have a beautiful daughter that says she is never leaving home.


And the newest member of our little family is our first fur baby Jaec (pronounced Jace). He is 13 months old.

We built our home in rural Pennsylvania. We live in the middle of a Christmas tree farm and even have Amish neighbors. We live a little over a mile from where I grew up.

I thank God everyday for the steps I can take and walk daily. I often share photos of my daily adventures on fb and instagram is you care to follow me. My user name is Joyce Casaldi.

You can't help but love the beautiful seasons we have here. From the lush green spring, to the lazy days of summer, the most beautiful vibrant fall colors and finished with a blanket of snow in the winter that is just spectacular. Right now the trees are just starting to turn color and will be in full autumn splendor in about 2 weeks. The corn and other crops are already drying for fall harvest.

As a family we enjoy Jeepin, kyaking, geocaching and just lazy days at home. I also enjoy reading and of course spending time in my studio.

Thanks so much for joining us for HYCCT and I look forward to seeing Hope and Love fill this years gallery!

Loved reading your story Joyce! Looks like our landscapes are pretty similar with farm land and Amish neighbors for us both.

Good to meet you! Your description of your surrounds makes me want to move there. I followed you on Instagram so I can live vicariously through your photos.
