I’ve always been a very social person. In fact, spending time with people is how I re-charge as an extrovert, so the opportunities I have to connect, both on and because of Social Media, have been extremely life-giving for me! I know it isn’t for everyone, but I wanted to share a bit about something really fun that I’ve had the opportunity to try my hand at over the last few months, which has allowed me to connect with even more amazing women through Social Media.

As teachers, you would think that Jeff and I would take the summers to truly rest and relax. The trouble is, neither of us “rest” well, and we are always looking for a project to tackle. The fact that we have summers off together provides us with the perfect opportunity to start crossing things off the “to-do” list. This summer, we decided to tackle the backyard – with the help of Dufresne Furniture and Appliance.
I’ve always loved words. For as long as I can remember, I have enjoyed reading, writing, and speaking. I can’t remember a time when I couldn’t read, and to this day, there is always a stack of books sitting beside my bed, or laying around the house for easy access. As a child, my love for words was honed through opportunities to write creatively in school, and I always loved bringing new worlds to life in short stories and poetry. When other kids were participating in various sports teams, I was participating in public speaking contests, spelling bees, and drama opportunities both in school and in surrounding communities.
