Hi, I am the author of this blog. I was originally born in the midwest of the US and now live in Florida and Illinois–splitting my time according to needs in both places. I am a new blogger so I am learning things daily about how best to share my life’s experiences. I love “staying young” and moving forward with my life–not turning to the past as often as I used to do. I hope you will read my blogs and get to know me better as the days go by.
