I have recently celebrated seven years here on HP. It has been a delightful journey, one I enjoy immensely.

My interests include reading, antiquing, fleamarkets, writing, cats, shopping, old movies, dancing and board games. I also love watching true crime shows, cooking competitions on the Food Network and anything to do with ghosts and hauntings.

My life has been blessed with a wonderful childhood, a wonderful marriage, two amazing children and the love of my life, my beautiful granddaughter. I just celebrated 24 years at my job as a documentation analyst/techwriter, and am so looking forward to the day I can retire. Also sharing my life are three cats, the oldest one, Krissy, and my granddaughter's cat, which she named Spot. Our newest addition is Salem, an all black cat with gold eyes. He is an absolute love. Spot is almost three years old and is a funny, energetic and delightful addition to our family.

Here are some of my favorite quotes/sayings. Please enjoy :)
