I thought you could get to know me a bit with some of the most asked questions.  

But I will start with a few basics:

  • Married to Don – 37 years
  • Son – Doug, 36 years old
  • Breast Cancer Survivor


Top question – how I got into blogging

Almost 10 years ago, I wanted to share my love of everything home.  I wanted it to be the Home-Ec class for those who never had this in school.  Basics like cooking and sharing recipes, home tips, DIY on the cheap, and holiday décor.  

Many opportunities came with being featured on all local TV news stations and lifestyle shows.  This changed with Covid.

About 5 years ago that changed when I discovered my passion for travel, including more cruising.

I still love all things home, but want to slowly change over to a travel blog only.
