I am a wife, mom, designer, daughter, sister. On any given day I might be tackling any one of those roles.
Interests: things i enjoy today include exploring little towns with my family, going to flea markets, gardening especially in the spring, taking photos of my kids, painting & sketching, pottery- both making it and buying it [my husband says i have an unnatural love of bowls!], reading sentimental books about life in small towns, putting my daughters hair in ponytails. if you ask me the same question tomorrow, i might have a diffrent list of answers. oh, yeah, i love a good glass of iced tea any time of the day!
