Always looking for the creativity in Life. I live in Plant City, Florida with my two sons(Ari and Andrew), my husband Jon, and Spooky our cat and Max our crazy dog.In my spare time I enjoy blogging and reading a good book , and Look forward to family summer vacations at the cottage in Michigan and some day will get to travel the world.
While I'm on my own creative journey, In my free time, I'm writing about things I love and enjoy, mostly creativity, things that hopefully inspire others and bring hope and joy. As I fight against following the EGO, I'm trying to live authentically and follow where the Muse takes me. I was lucky enough to travel as a child and be surrounded by talented, sweet people and know the struggles and frustrations of following the roads less traveled., so this is just me having fun enjoying the journey :-)
