As much as I like exploring and discovering new things, spending time with family will always top my list of favorite things to do. I love being a wife, mother and grandmother. When I’m with family, my world feels perfect! IMG_3021

I’m thankful for my husband, Keith, and what he brings into my life and to the rest of our family. Keith loves adventure and we have had the opportunity to  experience many wonderful things together. We both love outdoors, traveling, camping, and sight-seeing but our favorite thing to do is spend time on our screened-in porch he had built just for me. Keith has an “old school” gentleman’s heart and I love how he insists on opening doors for me and treating me like a lady. Our grandkids adore him! I’m really proud of him as he just wrote his first book which you can check out at

IMG_4530One of God’s greatest gifts is children and I have been blessed with three. My oldest, Julian, is a husband, father and works as a tennis pro in Houston, TX. Dion, my middle child lives in Nashville where he owns a landscape lighting company. My daughter, Jaci, lives in Nashville and is a wife, mother, recording artist, film actress and radio personality. Every moment I get to spend with my children is a blessing from God. My favorite times are when I have all three of them with me at once.

My grandkids are the icing on the cake. There are no words for the joy and sweetness they add to our family. I love spending as much time as I possibly can with them. My husband says I light up when they are around and I’m pretty sure its true. Some of my fondest memories as a child are those spent with my grandmother and I hope to create similar ones with my grandchildren. IMG_4456

IMG_0026The rock of my family is mom. I’m not sure what I would do without her. Her love, wisdom and caring have enriched my life dearly. Mom lives in New Mexico so I don’t get to see her as often as I would like but thankfully I get to talk to her daily.
