I enjoy reading - both hardcover books and on my Kindle. I've loved reading since I was a young child, and I have to resist the urge to keep my nose in a book all of the time. I "officially" started scrapbooking when my grandson was born, but I have scrapbooks I started as a child. I really enjoy the creative outlet, and I hope to explore digital scrapbooking one of these days. My family is my number one joy in life, and there is no where I would rather be than with them. What a comfort it is to spend time with those who know and love you well. I enjoy decorating our home so that it will reflect who we are, and be a comfortable and welcoming place for all who visit. My husband and I both enjoy researching our family genealogy, and we have found quite a few interesting and fun bits of information. We have a rose garden, and love photographing the roses as well as bringing them inside to enjoy and sharing them with others. My greatest joy and comfort is my faith in God.
