I love being a woman.

I’m a woman who has experience being a wife, a mom, a student, a teacher, and a degreed business professional. I’ve traveled throughout the U.S. and have been to Europe, too, but am greatly fond of western Michigan and its beaches, and the entire Midwest region. My journey is relative to my time, of course. I’m a straight-laced conservative when it comes to education and career, yet a child of the 60’s; a hippie you might say, when it comes to enjoying life. It’s been quite a ride!

My favorite things are my grown children, Ashlee and Krystal, my Colonel hubby, Scott (retired from the military after nearly 30 years but continues to work a civilian job), my mother, Kathy (a pioneer for women who worked in the factory at General Motors from the early 60’s until retirement 27 years later – but who is first and foremost a gentle woman with a strong soul and my forever role model), my pets (Japanese Chin dogs Jake and Lucy, and my kitties, Bliss and Salem), beaches, dragonflies, hummingbirds, and other nature. I might seem complicated at times but truly love the simple things.

My little place in the world, that’s my blog. I’ll be sharing my thoughts about my life, my family, my pets, my job, and how I view the world. I hope you enjoy my stories, my sense of humor, and my insight. This is a chance for us to share that cup of coffee or tea in the morning or afternoon, and reach across the miles that might separate us, and gather close together to catch our breath and a laugh or two. Life is busy. And so are we! So let’s dive in together. And smell the roses, too.

Thanks for dropping by.

Congrats to Krystal

Dear Friends,
Okay, exercising Mom bragging rights here! So please bear with me. ;-)
My daughter (Krystal) who completes her master's degree in higher education this spring (self-funded, BTW), just received her second promotion in less than 18 months, and is now an Associate Registrar! So proud of my intelligent, self-motivated, accomplished daughter. And she's just a great "kid!" (Always caring towards others, thoughtful, respectful) . . . So happy for her and love her so much.
Krystal has always been a hard worker, and in addition to holding down a full-time job and college, also worked part-time at the Fitness Center for many years. This is lots of job experience for such a young business professional, and I have every faith in her continued success.
Her step Dad says that he is really proud of her, too, and we always enjoy our visits together.
Have a great day!
Sending you peace.
