Queen of Hearts

I am the mother of two fine sons and a pretty awesome husband. We raised them to be good men. They are kind, loving, secure and confident, but not arrogant.

Spirit of ’76

In 1976 a wave of patriotism and nostalgia swept the nation as we celebrated America’s Bicentennial. Everybody got in on the celebration…Disneyland, DisneyWorld, commercial products, the ’76 Olympics, the Superbowl, Major League Baseball…even Schoolhouse Rock! I was 7 and my little sister Stephie was 3. I wanted to be a gymnast and do flips on the… Continue reading Spirit of ’76

World of Wizards and Witches

I’m definitely Zelda. I follow the rules when I drive (and bike!) and it makes me insane when other people don’t. Am I crazy? Probably. I get really crazy when drivers don’t watch out for bike riders. I’m always on guard. Sigh…that’s why I wear a full cranium cycling helmet that my kids say makes… Continue reading World of Wizards and Witches
