Based in the Colorado Springs, Colorado area. Experience listed HERE.
Professionally, I am a writer and photographer. I’m just practicing art here, writing often about my life, photography, the writing life, my past as a victim of abuse, about being a teen mom, about being a mom and wife in general, and observations about the world around me. Sometimes serious, sometimes funny, my goal is to share my words and my photos. This site is currently in transition but will soon feature more of my work, where other work can be found, and information about my book in progress.
Personally, I am the mother of three children who aren’t so much children anymore at ages 24, 20, and 18 (yes, I blinked). In this phase of my life, I’m getting used to the idea that the nest will be empty soon. I don’t always deal with that very well. (However, I have a grandson
on the way, and I’m so super excited about that! Only the most beautiful boy of the century. And I say that without any bias whatsoever!)
I have been married to my best friend for over 16 years, and not only do we still love each other very much, but we also still LIKE each other. I call that a win. Also, he does laundry and cleans the bathroom. Lifetime win!
I am gravity-challenged and know how to take a fall. Likewise, I have learned how to fall down in life and when chasing my dreams. More importantly, I’ve learned how to keep getting up. I have found no better option than to stand up again and again no matter how many times life knocks you on your butt.
Most importantly, I’m a princess, daughter of the King Most High. I give all praise and acknowledgement to God.
Pina coladas and getting caught in the rain.
