Shortly after moving to Maryland I started Nannying for a family who lived in Columbia, Maryland. I would drive the same route to their house each morning, and along the way a greenhouse, Sun’s Garden and Landscape, caught my eye. Four years ago I met Sam & Luke at Sun’s Garden and Landscape. We did […]

I am Katy Murray. I am a red head, a believer and a wife.
I love adventure. Any adventure.
I love to travel. Anywhere.
I don't laugh out loud during movies, even when I find them funny (Ask my husband and close friends). I tend to plan, too often. I like routine. I try to see the good in every day. Math is NOT my strong suit. I'm learning to fully trust God and his plan for me. I dream, way too much.
