I’m a passionately adoring wife, a loving daughter, a devoted sister, a very proud aunt, a blessed friend of many and a follower of Christ.  I’m a woman who can’t wait to find out what God is up to today and have fun in the process.  I am an avid reader, an artist in stained glass, broken china, and occasionally, in paint, words and salads.

I run a very small home-based business with my husband in which we get to express our more creative sides in the joint venture we call Red Ginkgo Designs.  You can catch a glimpse (or take a good long look!) at some of our favorite creations on our Etsy site at www.etsy.com/shop/redginkgodesigns One of our secret joys about the name of our business is that, if you’re looking, you can see God right in the middle of our name–and that’s exactly where we want Him to be in our lives…right in the center of everything we do.

I am a homemaker with a great love of color, antiques and design. (One of my favorite comments about all the different colors in my house was from a lady who came for a women’s breakfast and announced that “It looks like Sherman Williams exploded in here!”  LOL!!!)  I am Southern, have a HUGE extended family, a wonderful church home, love the laughter of friends and playing games with my nephews.

I am a serious person, but I don’t take myself too seriously. In fact, I am most often my own entertainment.  I love music (from James Taylor to Vivaldi and from Fernando Ortega to Yo Yo Ma), old movies, being in the mountains and  days of silence.  I love life!  I am confident, opinionated, independent, an encourager and I love being around other strong women–with whom God has blessed my life in abundance.  I have the privilege of being loved by and married to my best friend in all the world.  In short, I’m the most blessed person I know.  You can be, too!  It’s a choice, you know.  What will you choose  today?
