This is me a few years ago. Unfortunately, I am a bit heavier now, but that WILL change!

Personal Information:
I was born in Florida into a military family at the largest Air Force Base on American soil. Being an Air Force brat, I had the opportunity to live in Germany for 3 years while my father served at the American AFB in Wiesbaden. Being an Air Force brat also meant that I traveled with my family to many base installations around the United States. So I have lived in and seen places that I may not have otherwise seen.

Today, I live in NW Indiana (about 30 miles SE of Chicago, IL) with my husband of almost 30 years. Together, we have three daughters, a son and a quasi stepson. (I say quasi because he is actually the off-spring of my husband's first wife and her second husband; and, although we have mentally adopted him, there is no actual legality to our adoption of him. He is our son at heart)

Other Information:
First off, I am a Christian and I love the Lord, Jesus.

I am blessed to be both an artist and an artisan. I paint (on canvas and digitally) and delve into several types of handcrafts. Currently, my favorite crafts involve the use of polymer clays, making faux semi-precious gem stones and sculpting wire-framed dolls. My sculpts include figures of Santa Claus and angels.

Christmas and the Fourth of July are my favorite holidays, in that order, as I serve God first and then my country.

Finally, I am a family historian, having been doing Genealogy for nearly 30 years. In that research, I have connected my husband's and my own families to royalty, aristocrats, heros, "plain folk", and paupers, alike, with my files containing over 2800 individuals within almost 850 families... The oldest being Rognvald de Bruis, an ancestor to Robert the Bruce, first king of a liberated Scotland.
