About MeFrom 2007 to 2010, I suffered accidental Toxic Injury (also called Multiple Chemical Sensitivity or Environmental Illness). But, the forced time in bed has given me time to write. It has been such a blessing to work on my children's books and stories!
I love: God, family & friends, outdoors, gardening, animals, writing, reading, photography, cooking, music, dance, bare feet, long skirts, lavender & yellow, and chocolate.

Once again I am coming back from a blogging break with a “bang” and a deep subject, but it’s what is on my mind. Unprocessed grief can result in many things. These are some. Please note: in several of these … Continue reading
So I’m going to take a break from blogging for a while, but here’s why it’s unusual for me: it’s only because I want to and not because I pretty much HAVE to. 🙂 In the past, I have gotten … Continue reading
