Travel, Children and Light Chasing

On the last afternoon of my husband’s and my vacation to San Francisco and Napa, we found ourselves chasing sunlight across the Napa Valley. The shadow line raced across the valley from West to East and out of some instinct, we chose to follow it. In this…

Introduction
I am an empty-nesting, happily married, organized, creative person. A little yin and a little yang. No matter what I"m working on, my goal is to find the heart of any story and use the right words to tell it. 

For a self professed introvert, I’m a pretty chatty lady. Want to talk business? Know any good jokes? Have a location in France you want me to visit and write about? – Please get in touch.
Bragging rights
Raised (raising? are we ever done?) two awesome and independent minded daughters in the South. Remained married. Lived to tell about it.
