I am the mother of four grown daughters (an Empty Nester!) and new Gram to Fee, who lives too far away in the UK. I live in a rural area of Western New York State, but my heart resides on a small island in Mexico, Isla Mujeres. I am a full time accountant and a part-time blogger, and also a friend to my labs Max and Moe and our cats Zoe and Piper.
