I’m a California girl raised in the south. I was born in California, raised in Texas and Louisiana, but lived the majority of my adult life in California.
In 1981 I took a leap of faith and married a man who promised to love and cherish me for the rest of our lives. Two months later he signed his name on the dotted line and in January 1982 he found himself standing on the yellow footsteps of the Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego and I became a Marine Corps Wife. In 1984 God blessed us with a son.
I’ve lived in California, Texas, Louisiana, South Carolina and Japan. I “retired” October 2011, moved to San Tan Valley, Arizona, in November and February 2012 found my Marine retiring after 30 years of military service.
I love various forms of needlework, miniature quilts, cooking, reading, and playing the piano. Late 2012 found me learning to bead and make chain maille, and finding myself devouring decorating blogs that focus on personal creation and repurposing.
I have two Italian Greyhounds that I consider my children and am a huge supporter of Italian Greyhound Rescue. I hope to someday parent a retired racing greyhound.
I’m beginning to think being a grandmother might not be such a bad thing.
