In middle age, I'm still a work in progress. Wife of almost 40 years (to my college sweetheart). Mother of 3 of my own children and Mama Shepp to many others, I revel in my role of nurturer. I love books, movies, cooking and baking, furniture refinishing, and football. I'm a dabbler in gardening and crafting. Every day is an effort to find the balance between all of the parts in my life!
