My favorite “job” over the past 26 years has been being a mom. I am the mother of a wonderful daughter who finished up her Master’s of Fine Arts in Creative Writing in May of 2015 before moving to Texas, also. She is now a professional nanny in the area which gives her time to work on her writing. She and I were lucky enough to attend the University of Arizona together for a couple of years while she worked on her Bachelor’s Degree in Creative Writing. It has just been her and I most of her life, so we are quite close and love hanging out together (see pic). We love to travel, watch movies and TV, listen to music, and play with our sweet pups! Our dogs make us smile every day and we are so thankful to have them. There’s never a dull moment with Lennox, Blayze, and Wrenly around (see pic).
