Thanks for checking into my blog!

As a "recovering" middle school teacher with a unique outlook on life, I stopped active teaching in 2010 and moved into another career path... writing! Here goes! In addition, I am a travel buff, forever baseball addict, movie fan, music fan, foodie extraordinaire, NCIS devotee, gardener, and more.

Just love writing for kids, travel writing and basic journalism. Pretty unusual, since I taught Home Economics! But there's a story here too - a non-fiction one or more...

... and so it begins!

Another day... another career! Time to try something I love to do. I keep thinking of a speech by a character in Ron Howard's Parenthood. Grandma compared life to an amusement park. Some people liked the merry-go-round. It was safe, it went around and around, and you always knew what was going to happen. The only challenge was to not throw up. She liked the roller coaster. It goes up and down, and moves fast, and is scary, and is exhilarating at the same time.

Merry-go-rounds can be so boring, unless you ride them with kids.

I am a roller coaster fan. Now the big question is: Am I climbing a big hill now? Just love the "up" part!

Starting this blog is definitely an "up". Stay tuned....
