Welcome to my blog!

I am a published Online writer, who loves every minute of expression.

I am also a proud grandmother-‘Nonna’-to my only grandchild, Quinn Alexander.My husband, Anthony, Quinn, and my son, Aaron, are the lights in my life, and they shine quite brightly.
Age is of no concern for me: I believe that wrinkles and gray hair are signs of a long, stressful,  yet well lived life. I see no reason to change a thing. In fact, I am proud of my grays and facial curves.

They define me,  revealing the worry in which I tend to indulge.

I am happy and enjoying every minute of my life these days, and am looking forward to many more years.
My sites, https://theauthorlink.wordpress.com , http://lorlie6.hubpages.com, and https://addictivewriterslinkhere.wordpress.com/ contributions are proving to be marvelous places  in which to indulge in my love of writing and photography-I intend to continue on these sites until I am six feet under.
Thanks, each and every one of you, for visiting my site.
I am grateful and hope you come again.

Thank you,
