Rick and I have been married for 31 years and have two grown children. We are blessed to have two grandchildren. We love to travel and see the country--especially the mountains, lakes, and rivers. Our faith, family, and friends are what give meaning to our lives.

Rick is a "piddler." He loves the outdoors, his vette, and a good chicken fried steak.  

I am a "dabbler" (interests in many things). I love my home, girl trips, and a good Diet Coke.






A Day in History - March 5, 2009


This day marks the beginning of something new in my life. In the past, I have never been one to journal on a regular basis. The good Lord knows I should have. He has given me a wealth of experiences in my life to have written several books. I am confident some would have been best sellers. For instance, "The Tales of a Middle School Principal" would have made that list. I have seen and done it all in my profession! Another book which I would have entitled "The Luckiest Mom in the World" would have made the list as well. Now don't get me wrong; I have albums and albums of pictures to document our lives. In addition, both Justin and Jenna have three fully completed scrapbooks that take them from kindergarten through their senior years. I have saved box after box of special memorabilia for them. However, through the years, I did not record any events in true written journal form -- those have only been penned in my heart.

But "there is a time for everything." And now is the time to begin blogging. I predict it will not be a written record hundreds will be interested in. And that's ok. I am doing this primarily for those of you who know and love me! My challenge is to intentially record at least some of my thoughts and to gift you with a written record of those thoughts. Your challenge is to act interested.

So.....wish me luck as I begin "To Everything A Season."

    What a lovely Blog!
    And I love your music selections too.
    So a career in education...what a blessing.
    Do check out my first childrens'book "Grandpa's Magical Accordion." Youngsters from 2 to 90 have truly enjoyed it.
    Well, I look forward to getting to know each other through this enchanting medium.

  3. Hi Diana, I'm sure your stories will be good ones. Thanks for inviting me to visit. I'm only just now realizing that people do want to hear stories from some of us who have 'been there and done that'...or have a lot of special things to share about living life and loving our families.
    I look forward to reading more.

  4. Hi Diana, Thanks for looking at my blog and signing on to follow. I hope the New Year will bring me that MAC (I appreciate your input) and the energy and time to blog MUCH MORE REGULARLY. Wow, you have a beautiful family. I know you are proud of those grandbabies. I have 6 and am lucky enough to have them all within an hour to hour and a half driving distance!
    My husband and I have been married only 11 yrs., but I wish I'd met him many years ago. Sure would have saved me some bad decisions. BUT the Lord blessed me the day he brought us together and life has been so much happier, even with all the ups and downs life and family bring. Blessings to you and your family for a very Merry Christmas. I look forward to looking around your blog and getting to know you better. Blessings.
