Authentically Me

Freaking Raiders

Authentic Details:

Golden State native turned Treasure State (for 11 years), NOW southwest Floridian (!) writer, blogger and social media evangelist.

Have successfully raised one Grown-Ass Man, one daughter, and just assisted our last little birdy out of the nest. No more pencils, no more books, no more teenage dirty looks! It takes a village.

Since the sixth grade, I have kept a journal. Writing has always been my most natural form of expression. As a self-proclaimed lover of the written word, I was quite the prolific pen-pal, back in the day. I miss the intimacy and sweetness of a hand-written letter.

Random Obsessions:

Gary Allan – country music crooner, Yellowstone Park, anything vintage, rustic or “old-looking,” travel, and a morning steaming cup of Joe.

The beach, snow-shoeing and cross-country skiing

Football Ray-duh fanatical (in the worst sense) and bleed Silver & Black from August until the fat lady sings. I was invited to write a piece about Super Bowl  2011 that was published on the network. I went head to head with a BlogHer VP and lived to tell about it!

I was a flight attendant for Trans World Airlines, lived in New York City and traveled the world – from Alaska to Africa, and Tel Aviv to Texas.  I’ve seen a little of it all – and look forward to seeing more.

When I’m not blogging about a passing fancy, something sparkly, or a favored vacation spot, I often quip about my life with Sexy Hubby, with whom I’m lucky in love for 22 years. We met in high school, went our separate ways, and once we reconnected, we never looked back.

Why An Authentic Life? 

So far, the road has taken me a thousand miles from my friends and family and the only life I’ve ever known. It’s proved challenging, yet beginning a new life in Montana (now Florida!!) has allowed a fantastic opportunity to discover a more authentic side to myself.  

Authentic Affiliations: 

Former weekly contributor for Montana Parent Magazine, until our youngest graduated from high school in June of 2013. Founding member of Montana Social Media Network, and published on BlogHer Publishing Network.
