I am a 3rd generation performing marionette artist. I am learning to live life to it's fullest, no matter what comes my way. My childhood sweetheart & I are still loving each other & the world, since High school! I am Blessed!!!!! I have found ZUMBA & have joined the PARTY! A bumper sticker said, "Zumba changed my wife!" YES! It has! Also, Flash Mob..... what a blast! My body now REQUIRES movement! I am a better performer because of Spark People! I thank God, the Angels, AND Spark People, daily for my amazing life! My new quote: "BE THE HEALTH YOU WANT WITH WHAT YOU HAVE TO WORK WITH, & I WILL, TOO!"

My life is taking a new lovely turn! I am performing my marionettes for a local nature center! I love it, so rewarding & inspiring for me & the amazing audiences! A perfect place for me to grow & focus on goals. They happen about 1 time a month @ my favorite hiking spot using my marionettes to teach about nature! It IS magical! I am so Blessed & grateful for these experiences. I am enjoying watching my life unfold in this new way!

My 'regular' job is helping my DH with his lovely small business. I am learning SO many new things & thrive because of it! I love him so much!

    5 reasons Monday isn't so bad:

    1. You get to start fresh emoticon
    2. You have a whole week ahead to make it a good one emoticon
    3. Monday is the day you are least likely to see rain emoticon
    4. Morning coffee! emoticon
    5. If you had a bad week, you can put it behind you! emoticon

    Wishing you a terrific week my spark friend! emoticon

    emoticon A friend of mine has 2 dogs and her house always smells like, well you know. My niece has 6 dogs and I have not been over thee in quite awhile but I was wondering how anyone can take it. I guess she just doesn't want her babies catching cold. She does have outfits for them, maybe even more clothes than I have.
