A recently retired educator, I am enjoying this lovely gift of time spent with family and friends. My wonderful husband is a true blessing in my life! Gardening with perennials and herbs, card making, scrapbooking, watercolor painting, antiquing, letter writing, reading, travel, and taking long walks are just some of my favorite ways to spend my days. I also enjoy volunteering to help our military families stay connected with loved ones. This new chapter in life offers so many new possibilities to be creative, learn new things, and make a difference!
I’ve always loved sharing stories with family and friends. Long letters and scrapbooks can preserve the most wonderful stories. As a new blogger, I’m happily discovering a new way to share stories. It’s so important to document our lives, capturing the small moments and the big, exciting memories, too. Stories truly matter! It is my hope that you will find a few stories here that will touch your heart… and inspire you to tell your stories… in your own special ways!
