Just a Little About Me:
From pretty early on, I discovered that I seem to have a need to create, and that whenever I am thinking, learning, designing, decorating, painting, gardening, renovating something, or consumed in a project (or several at one time), 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, 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 and persistent urge to whip out my magic wand and pretty it up!

I am the mother of two absolutely wonderful, thoughtful, beautiful, and successful 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! 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'm also lucky enough to be called "Grand-ma" by seven little people that keep me very active. 

My husband and I met (and apparently formed a lifelong bond) in 1974, when we were mere teenagers - and then 28 years later we found each other again.  He is my soul man, my buddy, and my best friend. He is truly my better half, and he makes me laugh every day.

There is so much in my life that I am appreciative of, 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.

Personal Pet Peeves:
The words (or attitude) "I can't"
Whining
Dishonesty
Anyone's sense of entitlement (especially in Millennials)
Picky eaters
