The BEST part of life!

December 11th, 2020


My HAPPY Place!





 I live in the Fayetteville/Ft. Bragg, NC area.  I'm married to a fantastic guy, Aaron, for 21 years.  Since his retirement from the Army in 2009, we have learned a lot about each other! I thought eight deployments and seven out of ten years apart was rough; I was wrong. Transitioning to civilian life after serving the Army for twenty years is the hardest thing, but we made it. I have to say it made us better people and made our marriage stronger. ​

I've been making handmade cards since 2010 and love it. I've recently started creating YouTube videos, regularly. I love that it lets me combine two of my passions. I also bake and decorate cakes but it's so stressful. I've been known to chunk a cake in the woods a time or two when things weren't working out.

I also love playing video games. I'm more of a "the zombies are coming, you have a board and one vial of life", what are you going to do, type of gamer. Think Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Until Dawn. I do love me some Lego games, too. I also love binge-watching period dramas. Think Downton Abby and Outlander. 

I volunteer as the secretary/website manager for a non-profit organization, Warriors On the Water. We organize an annual Bass Fishing Tournament for our Service Members.

And I LOVE Walt Disney World! I'm like a kid, I get excited just talking about Disney, I cry watching the firework shows on YouTube! 

I've probably shared too much. I'm trying to open up a little bit more and let people really get to know me better. It's not so easy for me because I'm so guarded.


  • My husband is my BFF 

  • I have mad respect for my parents and tell them everything

  • I love to laugh

  • I love Walt Disney World but I don't want my home filled with all the merchandise


  • Halloween and Christmas are my favorite holidays

  • I'm an introvert, most days you will find me at home alone, and I LIKE it that way, MOM!
