What an honor to participate on a web site with such wonderful writers. Like others, I am always learning...always hoping. I am merely someone who loves to write about things I experience and things I know.
My ultimate life experience is being the mom to two beautiful girls, one in her twenties, and my oldest just turned 30. Even more awesome, is to be the grandmother to a 3 year old sweet little boy.
I believe myself to be young in heart and mind...and my philosophy on writing mirrors the great Ernest Hemingway, who said, "my aim is to put down what I see and what I feel in the best and simplest way I can tell it."
My favorite things to do are to be with my family, to cook for family and friends, read cooking magazines, novels by James Patterson and Michael Connelly, do home improvement projects, and, of course, write articles on HubPages.
Right now, I think my best hubs are about a trip to Vegas, my run-in with a possum, and people watching in the airport.
While I love to travel, and Vegas won a "hub", my true vacation heart belongs to Catalina Island.
I believe in God, my country, work-life balance, the generations of the future, and doing the right thing - as opposed to simply doing things right. I am no expert in any one thing, but I hope to tell my story, "simply, and in the best way that I feel."
I hope you will enjoy my hubs, and I hope that you will take the time to post a comment. Thanks for visiting!

Moving from Southern California to Oklahoma proved to be more of a culture shock than I imagined! Gone was my ocean, palm trees and In-N-Out Burgers. But I managed to survive and thrive...

How I miss the beautiful wild (and noisy) parrots who flew around my old neighborhood in California.
