Author of the Blue Diamond Box!



I married my college sweetheart. We’ve been married for more than a decade! And He IS the true love of my life.



I love to garden! Veggies! Cut flowers! I even have an asparagus patch that is as old as me!  I love putting on my boots and goin to the garden with my hound girl.


Yes, I love my nosy Rosie. After all, she is the cutest hound girl this side of Johnson County, Indiana.



I love my little Lovie and her big blue diamond eyes.

Oh, and I love anything and everything BLING!!!
