Introduction Thank you for stopping by and getting to know me! My husband and I have enjoyed 22 years of marriage together. We have three grown children: our daughter who has given us three adorable grandchildren--two girls and one boy, ages 8, 5 and 3. We also have twin sons, one married and one single, with another adorable grandson age 4. Our lives are full and blessed. My husband works in the aviation industry and we've managed to be transferred every five years since 1995. We've lived in St. Louis, Missouri (our hometown), Hershey, Pennsylvania, Crossville, Tennessee, and now Newnan, Georgia. We love the diversity we've encountered with all of the wonderful places we've lived. We've met lifelong friends whom we will cherish forever and have learned so many things.
Interests I love all the arts--I cannot choose one medium. I sew, write, paper craft, draw, paint, and otherwise create! Not only am I an avid collector of all things paper, but I also have an extensive collection of fabrics, ribbons, and trims. I just can't help myself. Luckily, each one of these things easily crosses over into many different forms of art. Designing is also among my passions, from clothing design to interior design, and furniture design, I get inspiration from everywhere and just begin drawing, putting my dreams first to paper, then on to planning the elements, and, finally to fruition. I also have a strong passion for animals. My husband and I have four dogs, three of whom are rescues. They are all different breeds and have come from all backgrounds, including puppymill rescue. We love each furry family member and couldn't imagine life without them.
Favorite Movies My husband and I love to watch fun, upbeat movies with substance. I, of course, love romantic comedies, too.
Favorite Music Our music interests reach far and wide from 1970's music we loved in high school, to 1980's music we shared while dating. We love Christian music, classical music, the songs of Andrea Boccelli, the wonderful music of Nat King Cole, and just about everything in between.
Favorite Books My favorite book to date is "The Shack". I am an avid reader and find self-help books helpful, as well as romantic novels, too! I also find myself constantly researching on the web--everything from the latest medical research to my biggest love, card making techniques, tips, and viewing the creations of others. How inspiring!!
