Born in Phoenix, AZ in 1968. Moved to Oregon Coast when I was 2. Grew up in the small town of Waldport. Moved to central Willamette Valley 1988. Have 2 sons, ages 18 and 10. Divorced in 2002. Married for 10+ yrs to my forever soul mate. We share an ancient Gaelic/Pagan, Native American heritage. Graduated from college w/ a B.S. in Botany and a Minor in Writing June 2010. Husband's job loss, his serious health issues and mine resulted in our family of 3 being homeless for 11 months - but we just moved in to a beautiful townhouse apartment next to 2 parks, and we LOVE it! Have struggled with being overweight my entire life (from infancy), and am so very grateful to SparkPeople !! The time has arrived for me to finally stay on the path to true Health and Happiness.

Other Information:
Permaculture and Spirituality (which is NOT religion) are guiding principles in my life.

Nature is the Center of my being.

I love to journal, read historical fantasy novels, walk with my Sweetheart in Nature, meditate and create...

emoticon for commenting on my Getting Free blog. emoticon I'm pleased that it is giving you some helpful ideas. emoticon Maintaining motivation when the task we face is huge, and progress is slow can be daunting. But that's why I'm so dedicated to a babysteps approach. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon We can get there when we keep plugging away!

I'd also like to invite you to check out our fun little Babysteps Brigade team if you would like. I also see we are each on a different pagan team. I hope you are enjoying yours. I love my GG group (A Gathering of Goddesses). emoticon s really are a blessing. I'm adding you, so I'll keep up with your doings when I remember to check my Friend Feed! emoticon

I chose the flame for Suki, I too lost a belove dog..Spuds we had him for 17 years. He was a Spitz and Chihuahua mix and a site to behold, he would steal your heart....just like Suki stole mine the moment I saw her picture. emoticon
