About
I'm a 44 year old wife to my best friend and mother to a wonderful 23 year old daughter. I'm a "stay-at-home-r" and love being the domestic housewife I always wanted to be. I love to take care of our home, redecorate, cook, entertain, etc. I have a Dachshund named Gizmo and a silver Tabby named Jasper. We are the typical American family. :)
