Also follow me on:

I am happily married for the second time to the love of my life. I am a Christian, and have 3 young adult children who live on their own now. I love to save money, use coupons, enter sweepstakes, write, and love my life as an entrepreneur through my writing and selling on eBay. I also love to travel, especially cruising. I have Bachelor's degree in Social Work, and a Master's Degree in Child Welfare. I worked with abused and neglected children and their families for 8 years before having my first child and deciding to stay home with him and be a full time mom. The work I did with children and families convinced me that this was the best decision for me and my family. I was a stay at home mom for a long time and loved every minute of it. After my divorce, I had to go to work full time, which was hard because I had loved being home for my kids. I worked in a high school, their high school for 7 years so I have always been available to them while they were students at school. After they all graduated, I left that job and was a substitute teacher for 2 years through Kelly Educational services so I could travel with my husband when he travels for work. We recently moved from CT to GA and now I work from home doing freelance writing and also selling on eBay. Some days I have to pinch myself because I can't believe how fortunate I am to be married to my second husband. He is the most loving, caring, generous, intelligent man I have ever met. We knew each other a long time ago, and then didn't see each other for 28 years. So, I feel very blessed to have this time with him now. I recently started a blog about second marriage romance because THIS time, I am so happily married!

Subjects I like to write about most:

* Romance

* Cruising

* Travel

* Work at home profiles

* Saving money with coupons and bargain shopping

*selling on eBay

* Teens/college/scholarships

* Parenting

* Life experience

I have been on Hub Pages for one year now. I also write for Textbroker, as well as my blog and am loving every minute of the writing. I am wondering why I waited so long to start? But also am very glad that I did! I am hoping to triple my earnings online in 2013, my second year of writing. I hope you enjoy my hubs.
