I have a passion for writing. I am continually learning how to be a better writer and try to stick to subjects I know or from past/present experinces in my life.

Hubpages is a great opportunity to write about anything and if you'd like, make a little money! Write for Hubpages today!

Here is a new site for backlinks SheToldMe.com. Its a pretty cool site, make sure you enter your Google Ad Sense Account in! Great way to get clicks too :)

My family is my highest priority! I have two great kids and an awesome husband!

I enjoy photography, writing, reading, knitting, crocheting, gardening and digital & traditional scrapbooking, cooking and baking.

I love to travel, especially to the ocean...any ocean is fine with me.

I hope you enjoy my hubs, feel free to leave comments!
