I’m a city girl, a middle aged mother of 5, wife, painter/artist, cloth doll designer, writer, dog lover, an eternal optimist (which helps when one is a Cubs fan…) and, as a whole, a pretty darn happy gal.
I love romantic comedies, documentaries, House, Project Runway, American Idol, Sex and the City reruns, The Office (USA) and most recently, Game of Thrones.
I believe in God, ghosts, love, kindness, laughing until my stomach hurts, quiet time, a good book, a delicious cup of coffee, bitch fests girl-friendships, walking the dog, cats, and most of everything my husband tells me.
The simple things in life make me most happy-taking walks in the woods with my golden retriever, making art, especially collage and painting. I am a bit of a well known doll maker (Hootin Annies), having designed for a few magazines and have a pattern line that many quilt shops all over the country stock.
Lately I’ve been dreaming of what my life might be like in another 5 years. I am thinking it would be quite lovely to own a few ten acres with a vintage farmhouse and some outbuildings where I can create an art studio and have a barn where I can keep the three donkeys that I’m longing for.
If you are looking for me, you’ll most likely find me in a cafe sipping delicious coffee while engrossed in a really great book.
My most favorite luxury is my garage door opener.
I guess you can say now that I’m middle aged, I’m officially on my ”woman hear me roar campaign.”
