<a href=”pinkinkandpolkadots.blogspot.com/”>Pink Ink and Polka Dots</a>
I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, and a teacher. Where one role ends another begins and completes the person known as Janine. I live for obtaining knowledge in order to share it with my students and skirting the boundaries for that one last book that feeds my soul. Knowing that I probably won't find a soul-changing book..... I will have to take my pink ink to paper and become the author of my soul.
