I don’t have any credentials with which to impress you, aside from a degree in Journalism that I don’t really use.  I’m a touch shy.  I love to write and feel I’ve always come across better on paper.  For seventeen years I've co-owned a fine linen shop and before that I opened and ran a ceramic tile store.  Daily, I strive to balance my job as retailer with my jobs as mother and a woman.  My children are amazing and someday I hope to grow up to be just like them.

We live in the truly northern part of California, not to be confused with San Francisco which is like in the middle of the state!  It is very rural and little backwoods, but thats the way I like it.

My passion is spirituality.  Manifesting, law of attraction, past lives, soul themes, segment intending, and mastering ego are all fascinating to me.  I’m always looking to learn something new in that arena and will share it here when I do.
