When I was 21, I married a good-looking pastor's son, and for the next 21 years, his military career took us to several regions of the U.S., plus six years overseas. Together we raised two children & assorted cats 'n dogs, and toured much of Germany, France, and Italy. We didn't have a lot of money, but we did have a very good map. We'd pack a picnic, grab the kids, and off we'd go. We spent our tenth anniversary in Paris!
Then, one day in Summer 2010, I suddenly found myself staring in the mirror at sixty. Yes, SIXTY. How that happened, I will never know.
When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren--three precious girls who live twenty minutes away from us. (And yes, I have timed those drives to the minute!) I also enjoy camping, cooking, history, online research, and traveling. I love a good mystery whether in movie or book form. You'll hardly ever find me without my Kindle tucked into my purse.
I like plenty more, but I tend to ramble on. See my "Things I Like" tab if you must know. I am beginning to embarrass myself here.
This is my home office, which used to be our son's bedroom many eons ago. It's where I work on writing projects and photo-editing work. The little red upholstered chair belonged to my grandpa, who passed away when I was 19.
