About Me - Part One

I grew up in a small town on the shores of Lake Michigan.

One of my favorite things to do with my Mom was to search the beach for fossils and beach glass in the evening.

I made fairy houses in the woods near my home when I was little.

My sixth grade teacher kept a paper that I wrote about the fairy houses for nearly 20 years that he shared with his students.

I can almost feel the fabric of my Grandmother's dress, hear her shy laugh and taste her birthday cakes though she has been gone many years.

I liked to read and draw and my report cards always said that I talked too much.

I took ballet for four years until I thought it wasn't "cool" anymore.

My high school art teacher secretly applied for me to get an art scholarship and surprised me with it.

I am thankful the Lord gave me something to do with my hands.

I always notice people's hands first, I think they tell a lot about a person.

I am the middle child sandwiched between two brothers.

May your memories bring you joy,


  1. I learned some new things about you!
    I want to read the fairy story. Do you have a copy? Children's Book Author and Illustrator could still be in your future. Give it a try. You can test your stories on us Bloggers.

  2. I agree I learned some things I never knew about you. That's scarey you look at peoples hands (mine are starting to look "old"). Guess that's why your hands are alaways so nicely manicured. I want to read the fairy story too. Please!!!

  3. I really enjoyed this post. Thank you for sharing a little bit about yourself.

  4. Thank you for your encouraging comments. My sixth grade teacher, Mr. McDonald, said that he was going to give me a copy of my paper but then he passed away. I do know that I titled it "My Secret Place".
