While brainstorming about what to write blogs about, I wanted to find a way for my readers to get to know some of the awesome people who I know. The best way I could come up with was an interview series.
Meet my Mom. We met at my birth. (obviously!) She’s one of the most kind-hearted people I know. Always willing to lend a helping hand. So… without further ado – here is my Mom.

Hails from: Pennsylvania
Me, Mom & Dad with my Aunt Rita in the front. She's my God-Mother.
Relationship Status: Happily Married for 49 years
Children: 4 – 3 sons & 1 daughter
Occupation: Takin’ it easy & lovin’ it! spoiling my Grandkids – both 2 & 4 legged
