It’s All About Me

Me at my desk extra cropWelcome! I’m tickled pink that you’re here.

This is where I share the funny and poignant about midlife, motherhood, and the empty nest. I no longer drive carpool, but can’t seem to shake my nickname. I have two grown children pursuing higher education far, far away and if they don’t move back, I’m getting a puppy. Just don’t tell my husband.

My favorite time to write is early in the morning, fueled by coffee. Lots and lots of coffee.  I love soy lattes, lipstick, and dressing up for Halloween. If you’re burning for more click on 10 Things You Don’t Know About Me or here for my very first interview. You’re welcome.

So sit back, relax, and see what all the fuss is about!
