I'm a Kentuckian who moved to New Jersey 26 years ago and never left. I have a husband and one daughter in college in New York City studying Musical Theatre. I love gardening, reading, walking, movies, and my family, not in that order. I have a group of close girlfriends that I wouldn't trade for anything. My dog Kobe is hilarious and adorable, my kitchen is nowhere near big enough, and the three of us (me, the kitchen,and the dog) are together quite often. My main hobby is decorative painting...my good friend and I have a Holiday Boutique in my home every year and also do a few craft shows. It will never make me rich but it does make me much happier than the job I left in 2001, a decision I have never regretted.
