I’m happily married to my childhood sweetheart with two beautiful daughters. In my time I’ve been a career woman, entrepeneur and homemaker but my whole life changed a few years ago when I had a haemorrhagic stroke (brain haemorrhage). With resulting minor disabilities to cope with, it would have been so easy to go into a downward spiral but the whole experience has instead taught me that I’m a fighter in life who prefers to focus on the positive and not the negative. As a life-long crafter for instance, the slower pace of my life now allows me to indulge in my creative side and I’m loving it! I’ve been writing online pretty much constantly for 14 years but only started blogging about three/four years ago and I love the new friendships that I’m making.
I’m so happy that you’ve taken the time to stop by and hope that you’ll check in often!
