Who am I and why should anyone care what I think? Good question when I figure that out I will blog about it >8)
I have been a designer for what seems like forever – can’t imagine doing anything else – well no that’s not true I can easily imagine being an independently wealthy, international jet setter – however no one is willing to pay me for that….. My back up plan has been this whole design thing which has worked out pretty well if I do say so myself. If you are really interested here is the link to my professional website which is of course under construction and probably always will be since I do work for a living.
This blog is not going to be all about design but it will likely be a recurring theme along with other random thoughts that cross my mind – no one ever accused me of having no opinions. But I am just as likely to discuss how to survive a zombie apocalypse, my latest shopping trip or the fact that the dogs barfed on the rug (which is a shame since it really tied the room together…)
I am married to a fantastic man that I love to death and feel lucky to have found and between the two of us we have two boys 20 and 17 – they are great kids – never been arrested so I chalk that up to excellent parenting skills!
We have five (yes 5 – don’t judge me) small dogs which are the source of much amusement and a lot of hair on the furniture and I also have a beautiful horse who I don’t spend enough time with right now – I am sure the blogging will really help with that….
Although originally from Northern Ireland, I lived in Seattle for about 20 years – a whole country to choose from and I end up in the rainy Pacific Northwest! – go figure! Seattle was a great place to live – just wet and getting colder every year
We just completed a lengthy and stressful relocation across the country from Seattle to Florida. As you might imagine that is a bit of a culture shock although believe me the weather does not suck
From Oct to about May I am prone to much giggling and smug laughter as I monitor the crappy weather that everyone else is dealing with while I am loving the wall to wall sunshine. People who claim that they couldn’t live anywhere that didn’t have seasons are delusional – seasons are highly over rated – I don’t miss the cold and rain at all! This is of course due to the fact that I have been rained on for most of my life so by now I am thoroughly over it.
Anyway if you do manage to stumble across this blog I hope you enjoy it – if not, at least I know my mother will have something to read – or would if she knew how to turn on a computer.
