Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ll put your feet up and stay for awhile. This is, after all, a place for friends to gather.
For as long as I can remember, I have been a writer. Words are my constant companion, my solace, my connection to humanity. I write because I must, but I also write to share a common experience. If one of my sentences makes you feel like you are not alone in this wide world, then I have done my job.
For those of you who are new, please let me introduce myself. I have been married to the love of my life for 20 years, by his side for 27. Chris and I are the parents of four very fun, unique, and vibrant kids we call Sam (17), Gus (15), Mary Claire (14), and George (12). Add our canine companions, Maggie and Lucy, to the mix, and life around here is never dull… or quiet. We have a wide and beloved circle of friends and family and believe very strongly in unconditional love, abiding trust, heartfelt conversation, unfettered laughter, dining al fresco, dancing with reckless abandon, and spicing things up with a bit of profanity as necessary.
