February Newsletter Contest Winner

Congratulations Mary P. winner of the $50 Amazon Gift Card. 

A huge thank you to everyone who answered February’s question: Who do you love and where did you first meet. And yes, there were some furry-faced, whiskered, wet-nosed someones. The answers ranged from sweet to bittersweet, serious to just plain fun. What a honor to be given a glimpse into your lives.

Since you shared your stories with me, here’s mine…

April 11, 1975, I met the man I fell in love with at-first-sight. Dave was on Spring Break and had come back to help out with the lighting for our High School production of West Side Story. I didn’t make the cut to be in the play, but I wanted to be a part of it, so I signed up to be an usherette.

It really was just like the song…Some Enchanted Evening…whether your favorite version was sung by Rossano Brazzi in South Pacific, or Jay and the Americans–the power of that one glance across the room changed my life forever. This August we’ll celebrate our 38th Anniversary. We’ve been blessed with two sons and a daughter in the middle and have added a son-in-law and two precious grandbabies to the mix–and two dogs we rescued just to add to the chaos.

Everything happens for a reason, and I’m grateful every day that I didn’t get that part in the chorus of West Side Story all those years ago.

Writing from the heart, about the things I love the most: Family, My Irish Ancestry, Baking and Gardening.
