The perfect day would be… a little work, time for a workout outdoors, time for cooking a nice dinner with my husband, and time to spend around the table with my kids.
My first job was… babysitting, but my first “real” job was as a nursing assistant at a senior care center.
My favorite escape… is a beach vacation.
My life… is full of wondrous gifts, people, events, and opportunities that I am blessed with. I remind myself to wake up every day and choose to be grateful and happy.
