I've lived on the gulf coast in Panama City, FL since June of 2000. My family moved here after my senior year in high school to attend to a family illness. In the beginning, it was difficult to leave my friends in Newnan, GA, but after a few months I adapted and now I could never imagine living anywhere else.
The coast is so beautiful. The water-color sunsets, crystal blue water, and sugar white sands are just breath-taking. I love to spend the day just basking in the awe of it. Panama City is the perfect mesh of urban amenities and small town charm, which makes it a great place to live and enjoy life.
My husband, Chuck, is a master welder and sheet metal mechanic. We have a modest condo which we share with our two cats, parakeet and nephew, Morlan. Morlan was born in 2011 and while he does live with mother, my sister, he spends the majority of his time with Chuck and me because she works 2 jobs. Chuck and I don't have any children together, but he has an adult daughter, who he adores, from a previous marriage. She and her husband live in Lakeland, FL.
In my spare time I enjoy writing, surfing the net, dabbling in programming, saltwater fishing, golfing, cooking, and crafting.
I try to be a thoughtful, compassionate person with a positive attitude. My philosophy is to use things and love people, not use people and love things. Life is too short for greed, pettiness, and anger.
