Story
Introduction
I am happily married to Patrick since 1975. We have two adult children, Katy and Nick, and two beautiful granddaughters, Ezra and June, who call me Grams. I have lived in Corpus Christi, Texas since 1964.

For 32 years I worked as an administrative assistant and special events fund-raiser for a local nonprofit. Now I work part time as a substitute teacher. Now that I work part-time, I love to cook, sew, craft, read, and blog. You can find my blog at http://www.gramsmadeit.blogspot.com.
