Just a Little About Me:

From pretty early on, I discovered that whenever I am thinking, creating, designing, decorating, painting, gardening, renovating something, or consumed in a project, I am at my happiest. I enjoy challenges, and whenever I look at something that appears to be ready for the trash heap, whether it's a room, an old piece of 60s blue-painted furniture, an overgrown and weed-infested garden, or even an entire house - if I know there are possibilities of beautification, I get an uncontrollable urge to whip out my magic wand and pretty it up! While most women herd to the mall in a ritual of gratification, I can usually be found at the paint store, hardware, or garden department somewhere, planning my attack. (I have been known to spend hours at a time there!) 

I am the mother of two absolutely wonderful and adorable [now adult] daughters, and they made my job of being their mother seem pretty easy. Both of my daughters are at the top of the list as my greatest blessings in life, and they have truly made this mom happy and proud! (Okay, 99.9% of the time...)  They have brought me joy every single day, and have become two of the most amazing women I could've ever dreamed they'd be. 

I am married to my soul man and best friend who makes me laugh every day. We met (and apparently formed a lifelong bond) when we were teenagers and then 28 years later we found each other again.

I am thankful for so much in my life, but something I am thankful for every day is that my parents provided me with a solid and loving Christian family foundation. They taught by example and set the bar high. In looking back, I can fully appreciate all their efforts, and also the fact that if one little aspect had been different in my life, it could have changed so much of what I hold dear and sometimes might even take for granted.
