Last year on the cusp of an Empty Nest, I decided to pursue a real estate license — and after I got my license, a dear friend connected me with her broker at Harry Norman, Realtors®, which I joyfully joined. So through my training and acclimation to this new world I found out that a blog is a great place to showcase my interests and add value to other people’s lives at the same time. I hope I can connect with people through this blog and through Harry Norman, Realtors®. I am excited about my career and creating new relationships. And I am feeling a heap of gratitude for my family and my longtime friends who have encouraged me along.
This is a nice place for me to put down my ideas and projects and share the photographs I’ve taken. I enjoy sharing these things and hope that they may inspire someone to do something fun and creative and meaningful. The kinds of things I enjoy are “lifestyle”-oriented, I suppose — cooking, baking, enhancing and improving my home and my yard. I love getting great photos of these things, plus I love taking photos of people and places. I hope to share the things that matter to me — my home projects, adventures in my kitchen, great restaurants, travel, things relating to my interests in the arts — music, art, dance, theater — and community events in Peachtree Corners and metro Atlanta. I also occasionally enjoy a great Atlanta United soccer match!
Websites are such fun places to visit. It is awesome be part of a bigger, diverse community and share my ideas, creations, and interests!
After spending the last 26 years taking care of my children, I am ready to look outward now and see where my abilities and talents can lead me. My husband and I homeschooled our children throughout their lives (they are 25, 22, and 18 at this writing). I learned a great deal over those years: I learned about the fulfillment of putting others first, I learned how to search for what you need, and how to create what you couldn’t find. I know now that I am a great facilitator and manager — and also that I will always love reading — fiction, non-fiction, and storybooks and picture books — and that our relationships with the arts can make a difference in how we get through life. I learned all about having authentic gratitude for the people I love and the life I live.
