I love my life! I have an amazing husband, Steve, and we have been married since May of 2003. We have a wonderful life together. He is my life and my best friend. I am one of the lucky people in the world who gets to do something they LOVE for a living. I have two 'jobs'...I am an elementary teacher and I am an Independent Consultant for Close to my Heart. I am an avid sports fan. I especially love football and basketball. In my spare time, I love to read novels, knit, and paper craft. I completed my EdD at Wilkes University in March 2015. Between work and classes I don't have as much time to craft as I would like, but I try to squeeze in as much creative time as my schedule allows.
